For Sale: 1991 Players Challenge Chevrolet Camaro

Posted: May 12, 2024

This 1991 Camaro is one of only 32 factory built showroom stock racecars built for the Canadian GM Motorsport/Players Challenge racing series. This car was campaigned in the ‘91 and ‘92 seasons with one win, three top 5s, and a pole position, ultimately finishing third in the ‘92 east/west shootout driven by Trevor Seibert and Barrie Ihaksi. It has the R7U (Players Series car) and 1LE RPO codes making it first of 32 built that year at the factory specifically for the series. I also have an extensive package of documentation and photos to authenticate the car. These were factory built racecars and not available to the public. The car was later stripped of its race components post-1992 and transformed into a street car, only to be rediscovered at a garage sale in 2001. (There is a very colourful ‘back story’ about this period. – ask me!) Apparently the car came very close to being scrapped so that the engine could be used in a ’55 Chevy project. Luckily that didn’t happen!

The car is still running the factory hand-built and dynoed race engine and transmission from the ‘92 season (305 cubic inch with 5 speed). Included is a replica engine PROM like the ones used in the race series and the side exhaust is also an exact replica of the one provided by GM to the original teams. The livery is from the ‘92 season.

Check out these You Tube videos of the car in action during Round 3 at Race City Calgary (here) and the East/West Shootout at Mosport (here) in the 1992 season.

Modifications for racing include full welded roll cage, Koni Sport dampers all around, polyurethane suspension bushings, steel braided brake hoses, gauge panel with Speedhut gauges, aluminum radiator and shroud with Spal electric fans, canton road race oil pan, racing seat and schroth harness, engine kill switch, fire suppression system, aluminum driveshaft, front and rear tow points, fireproof shifter boot, and quick release steering wheel, and AIM Solo 2 mount. Stock items that were removed and saved include the drivers seat, steering wheel, gauge cluster, etc.

The following maintenance items have been completed recently: new injectors, fuel rail o-rings replaced, new fuel pressure regulator, engine sensors replaced (MAP, TPS, coolant and air temp, EGR valve), spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, new front calipers, rebuilt rear calipers, all new brake lines front to back, new master cylinder, brake fluid flushed and engine oil changed after every track event, new rotors, brand new Hawk HP Plus brake pads all around, fuel pump, engine belts, axle bearings, power steering pump hoses, all fluids changed, suspension and rear end taken off and painted, new ball joints, tie rods, sway bar links, new polyurethane bushings, new water pump, cooling system drained and flushed every year.

The extensive spares package includes: two extra sets of white painted wheels (one set with used Toyo R888Rs and one with brand new Pirelli Trofeo Rs). The tires on the car are well-used BFG Sport Comp 2s; a complete, partially disassembled 305 (The plan was to build and replace the original race engine to preserve it); a complete T5 trans with clutch and short throw shifter; a nine bolt rear modified for use in a 3rd gen.

I also bought a complete car and disassembled it for parts. So there are doors, fenders, bumpers, several sets of side skirts, tons of bolts, a full interior, dash, whole wiring harness, suspension … basically a whole cars worth of parts! There are also lots of other odds and ends such as Delrin bushings, oil pump, new water pump, spare engine sensors, engine belts, brake calipers, tail lights, new brake pads, oil and air filters, etc.

The odometer shows 2,900kms on a swapped GPS speedometer, while the body, although not flawless, attests to its history as a true racecar. This car is still used as a track car and was prepared as such. The VRCBC has a race class specifically for the former Players Challenge cars. It is also registered, insured, and driven on the street. Don’t miss this chance to own a piece of Canadian racing history!

The car is located in Fruitvale, B.C., with delivery options available within B.C. and Alberta at an additional cost.

Price: Asking $30,000 for the car and the comprehensive spares package.

For Sale: 1950 MG TD

Posted: February 18, 2024

I have a 1950 MG TD that has been in our family since 1975. This car does run but does need some bodywork and a good tune up ! You certainly could do a full restore if you wanted. There is some front fender damage, along with a kink in the chrome bumper. It is pretty much original, although it had a paint job in about 2004 and a new tonneau cover for the top.

This classic British sports car comes with some extras too. As my father was a member of the British Racing Drivers Club (BRDC), we have many manuals, books, paperwork, and the UK history of the car, plus a Rubbermaid container of parts brought over from the BRDC. It has always been stored inside since 1975, but has not been driven regularly for a while.

Price: $14,500

For Sale: 1967 Mk2 Cortina Lotus Twin Cam Street Legal Vintage Racer

Brent Martin photo

Updated: October 31, 2023

The Mk2 Cortina Lotus was not only more reliable than the original classic but troublesome Mk1, but it was also available in left hand drive and had a more powerful engine. This meticulously maintained Mk2 example was first raced by its current owner in July 1992 at Seattle International Raceway (now Pacific Raceways). Its racing history includes 94(!) vintage events at tracks such as, Seattle, Portland International Raceway (PIR), Bremerton, Spokane, Reno, Thunderhill, Sears Point (Sonoma), Laguna Seca, Buttonwillow, Lime Rock, Watkins Glen, Road America/Elkhart Lake, and of course Mission (shown above), where it has been a regular performer the last few seasons.

The powertrain features all steel crankshaft and twin camshafts, a stainless steel exhaust system, a pre-start engine oiling system and low oil pressure warning light, a switch for operating the cooling fan with the engine off, a four-speed Quaife close-ratio transmission and a limited slip differential. The body has a full interior that has been supplemented for racing with a roll bar, a racing seat, a five-point safety harness, a fuel cell (race gas only), a Halon fire suppression system, plus period-correct Smith speedometer and tach.

The most recent performance tuning was done in late 2020. Although this Cortina Lotus is a very competitive Vintage racing car, it is also fully street-legal and registered.

Price on application. Serious enquiries only please.

For Sale: 1959 Austin Healey 100-6 Vintage Racing Car

Posted: April 22, 2023

This 1959 Austin Healey is possibly the most continually active and recognized Big Healey vintage racing car in the United States! For many enthusiasts, the 100-6 is the most desirable of all of the Big Healeys; having all of the benefits of six cylinders over the four of the original 100-4, but none of ‘the fancy stuff’ added to the later 3000 series cars.

This classic has had a lot of of race preparation, including a custom engineered cooling system, J.E. Pistons, a DMD aluminum block and DMD aluminium head, triple Weber 45’s, MSD ignition system, Fuel Safe fuel cell and Holley fuel pump. More photos and information are available on the seller’s website (here). The car is located in Iowa.

For Sale: 1991 Ford Taurus SHO

1991 Ford Taurus SHO – Front View

Updated: July  1, 2021 This 1991 Ford Taurus SHO is a great example of the original classic; a real enthusiast’s car. It is powered by the excellent Yamaha DOHC 24 valve, V6 producing 220 hp and backed up by a five speed gearbox. The SHO delivered 143 mph/ 230 kph out of the box together with great gas mileage.  This example is fairly close to clean “survivor” condition, It has approximately $10,000 in performance upgrades including urethane suspension components, Koni shocks, stainless header and exhaust, and the Wilwood “SHOstopper” brake conversion.

Included with the car are most of the original parts, receipts and spares, including extra Wilwood brake calipers, extra SHO body parts, Ford factory manual and more.  The front engine seal leaks a bit but a new seal and a new timing belt are included.

The current owner has had this local BC car for 20 years. It has 185,000 miles and although it has been off the road for a few years, it starts and runs very well. It would likely qualify for BC Collector plates with some TLC. It is located in North Vancouver. Update: If you aren’t familiar with the back story of the SHO, watch this recent video (here) from our good friends at Hagerty. As you will see, the SHO is the ultimate ‘sleeper’! Price: $4,000 (And ask about a special deal for current VRCBC and SCCBC members.) For further information, contact: John by phone at: (778) 229-7296 or by email at: jmelliott@suncor.com
