Found a Super RARE 1955 LANCIA AURELIA B24 S SPIDER 'AMERICA' Project. Lancia only produced 240 cars in 1954-1955. This could be a great buy for a collector. in 2014, RM Auctions sold a "barn find" 1955 Aurelia Spider at auction for USD$805,154 USD). In 2014, Gooding and Company Auctions sold a restored 1955 Aurelia Spider for USD$1.8million http://www.rare-autos.com/cars/super-rare-1955-lancia-aurelia-b24-s-spider-america-project #classiccars #classiccar #lancia #italiancars #beRare

Interesting Porsche Fact: Given the engine in the back, Porsches have always had a reputation of having balance and overstearing problems. With the introduction of the more powerful 911s the problem was something Porsche wanted to address. In 1972 the engineers created a far more balanced model which placed the oil tank of the car in front of the rear wheels not behind it. This created far better balance and stability on the roads. Seeing the oil tank was now in front of the engine, the oil filler tap/flap had to also be moved. For this model they placed it right behind the door on the right side rear quarter panel (see pic), which admittedly seemed to look like a fuel tank flap, however it was actually for oil (and like all other good Porsches, the real fuel flap is at the front of the car). SO why is it not there now if it made 911s better? Well it had to be removed because too many petrol station attendants were filling up the oil with petrol. Thus the model had to be discontinued only after one short year. NOW you can imagine the amount of genius work hours spent perfecting something already so perfect to have it ruined by snotty nosed gas clerks probably working to pay for their tuition. That is why the 1972 model is particularly sought after because it is the only year that has the rare oil tank position and if you can get your hands on an original S version, then you will be the envy of most Porsche enthusiasts around.
