All I need is a cage, hans, suit and cutoff switch and I'll be ready (meaning sometime between 2009-2040 $$$). Car is ready otherwise...I have a bar, but it isn't legal. Plan on getting a Hans or similar for 2008 DEs.
Jim buddy, let's get that cage and log book going! Come on out and play!

Yeah, I like the way the new G class looks and hopefully we'll get more 993's in the mix, as you suggested. Locally, we've got a growing group of prepared C2's and 993's mixing it up (although the 993's have gotten the best of us lately ), which will make for a fun 2008 season.

On Topic: I checked the rule book and US Cups meeting race series specifications can run GTC1.

Joe - if memory serves me correctly, the asking price was $45k. The guy was in the NW 'burbs, too. How's that for a kick in the teeth for both of us? You snooze you loose. I hope its being enjoyed properly, as that is all that matters.

$85k for a US Cup seems nuts, imo. Just sayin'.

The Andial prepped US cup cars are classified in GTC1.

Wasn't there supposed to be a gathering at WGI at one point along with US Cups?
I was going to write an article on the Cup cars and together with Colin were going to do a Cup gathering. However, one of the Region's hosting the event in question was not receptive to the the article and was not helpful or supportive, so I cancelled the article.

Rarity cost money. Its just like the difference between a real 73 RS and a clone. The cups that have sold in the last year have all gone for at least high 70s.

No argument there, Colin. Are you talking Euro or US? Isn't it fair to say that Euro Cups would carry more of a premium, or am I starting another motor oil debate?

I think most of the GT1C cars are Euro cup cars, I don't know if there are any differences between the Euro Cup and a Andial Prepped US cup. I have raced against the Euro cars but I am not an experienced enough driver to tell if there is any real difference. I would guess the most valuable US cup cars are the street versions. I would also guess that any good solid, straight competive GTC1 car is worth about the same.

The Prices have been accelerating on the US Cups - people are rediscovering them for there collector value (as the only road legal RS is the us, only 45 made, etc)

i think they will continue to go up as people get back into the collector car market and out of real estate

i know 4 people who are looking for them personally.

(it does not seem to be listed anymore, sold?)

From what I have seen, the prices for similar quality cars tends to be about the same. In general, USA cups tend to be in better shape since none were raced in a series, and they can be street driven. Euros have the history behind them which does add something. So net-net, I think they tend to be very close in value. The euro cars that have real history (like the real Tag car) are probably worth the most.

They are the same, aside from a few very minor differences (e.g. sway bar drop links). The times between the two should be basically even.
