CLASSICCARS.COM REPORTS: CLASS OF 1992 CAN CELEBRATE 25TH REUNION WITH FIVE RAPIDLY APPRECIATING NEXT-GENERATION COLLECTOR CARS

Newly Released List Includes Acura, BMW, Dodge, Porsche and Toyota Models

Phoenix, (June 22, 2017) — Just in time for graduation season, the experts at ClassicCars.com have identified five vehicles from the 1992 model year that represent great investments—especially for nostalgic-minded enthusiasts looking for something special to drive to their 25th reunion.

“Representing a broad spectrum of domestic and import makes and models, this list identifies cars that are showing significant signs of appreciation on the market,” said Andy Reid, ClassicCars.com’s East Coast Editor and Analyst. “These cars represent a new segment of the collector car hobby, which emphasizes models from the ’80s and ’90s.

The ClassicCars.com “Class of ’92” list includes:

1992 Acura NSX
A landmark car when introduced, the NSX was the first sensible supercar to offer all the glitz and glamour of an exotic with Honda reliability. Only 7421 were made for U.S. buyers over the eight-year lifespan of this first-generation model. With availability limited, demand continues to grow.

1992 BMW M3
Universally hailed as one of the best BMW’s ever built, it’s basically the “swiss army knife” of cars, available as a convertible, sedan or coupe, an option for every taste. The M3 also boasts a well-documented heritage as a racecar. The first-generation M3 delivered everything it promised, and more. Models from 1992—especially those with low mileage—are extremely valuable.

1992 Dodge Viper
The brainchild of Bob Lutz with input from Carrol Shelby, the Viper is a modern-day Cobra, the kind of car we’ll never see again. Only 285 Vipers were built in 1992, the year this supercar made its debut. This is the model year that true collectors want, but availability is scarce.

1992 Porsche 968
The final version of the Porsche 924/944 platform, this reengineered ’92 model was the first to be completely built by Porsche, with no input from Audi. Total North American production that year was limited to 1,440 units. Very few are available, and low-mileage ones are almost impossible to find.

1992 Toyota MR2
The 1992 MR2 has gone up in price because good examples of low-mileage cars are scarce. We’ve seen a resurgence in demand for Japanese cars, and this is one of those that is extremely sought after.
“With the exception of the Viper, all offer niceties of a modern car but all the nostalgia of a classic,” Reid said. “This new generation of collectors love driving these cars. Accordingly, these five are as usable as they are collectible.”

HRE LAUNCHES 10 NEW STYLES WITH THE RS2M AND RS3M SERIES


HRE launches fresh designs with a twist for an all-new Monoblok line-up

Vista, Calif. (June, 2017) – Every year, HRE Wheels uses its annual Open House as a platform to launch a new, innovative wheel line-up. In 2017, HRE announced not one, but two brand new series of Monoblok designs named RS2M and RS3M.

The Series RS2M and RS3M debut with ten new styles, with the RS2M having a traditional straight spoke design. This includes the 7-spoke Mesh RS200M, the 5-spoke V RS204M, the 5-spoke RS205M, the 5-spoke split RS207M and the solid 7-spoke RS208M.

The RS3M Series takes its inspiration from the RS2M designs, but adds a twisted spoke feature to each style to make them unique. This includes the RS300M, the RS304M, RS307M, RS308M and the multi-spoke RS309M.

The Series RS2M and RS3M are available in diameters ranging from 19 to 22 inches and widths range from 8.5 to 13 inches. Features include clean, refined, surfacing geometry and lightweight pocketing on the face that reduces weight and creates the unique and defining styling feature of these series.

“Sometimes less is more,” said HRE President Alan Peltier. “The RS2M and RS3M are for those customers who appreciate the fact that wheel styles don’t always need to be overly complicated to be gorgeous. Clean, simple and refined can often be the most elegant. In an age where wheel styles are getting more and more “fancy”, we recognize that wheels don’t stand alone, but have to work with the design of the car, never overpowering it or cheapening it. Our wheels should always complement the clean and refined styling of today’s finest cars and the RS2M and RS3M do that perfectly.”

All HRE wheels are engineered to minimize unsprung mass and rotational inertia for optimal acceleration, handling and braking performance. Each wheel is built-to-order and there are nearly infinite fitment, color and finish options available for the ultimate custom-tailored wheel buying experience.

“The High Art of Riding Low” examines the lowrider as an artistic catalyst and cultural icon.

“BIG DADDY” DON GARLITS NAMED GRAND MARSHALL OF THE 2017 HEMMINGS MOTOR NEWS GREAT RACE PRESENTED BY HAGERTY

Florida native and drag racing legend will kick off the 2017 Great Race in Jacksonville, Florida on June 24

Chattanooga, TN. (June, 2017) – Great Race officials have announced that legendary drag racer “Big Daddy” Don Garlits has been named as Grand Marshall of the 2017 Hemmings Motor News Great Race presented by Hagerty. This year’s event will begin in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, June 24 and make its way north along sections of the old Dixie Highway, to the finish line in Traverse City, Michigan on Sunday, July 2.

The Great Race is a time-speed-endurance rally which tests the limits of drivers, navigators and their classic vehicles. Only 1972 and earlier vehicles are permitted to participate in the Great Race, and vehicles as early as 1916 will make the 2,300-mile trek from Florida to Michigan vying to win a piece of the $150,000 purse. Event organizers work to keep the race challenging by changing its route annually, and this year’s route offers a lot of great scenery and visits to some of the finest car collections in the country. Lunch stops and overnight stops are hosted each day, and the cities and towns offer a festival-like welcoming party for the 120 race teams.

The start of the Great Race in Jacksonville, Florida is free to the public and offers hours of fun, as the racers line up on Main Street in the Historic Springfield section of downtown Jacksonville. The festivities kick off at 8am and the “Big Daddy” Don Garlits will wave the green flag at 10:30am.

“We’re honored that ‘Big Daddy’ Don Garlits has agreed to serve as the Grand Marshall of the 2017 Great Race,” said Corky Coker, CEO of Coker Tire. “His incredible personality and commitment to safety in racing are an inspiration to all.”

A fixture in drag racing nearly since its inception, Garlits is often looked upon as the father of the sport. Garlits built his first dragster in 1954 – a 1927 Ford T-Bucket with a 1948 Mercury engine, 1939 Ford transmission and a 1948 Ford rear axle – outdoors at his home in north Tampa. That car became the basis for the first of Garlits’ “slingshot” dragsters in which the driver was placed behind the rear axle. In 1970, Garlits suffered a traumatic foot injury when the transmission of the slingshot-style dragster he was driving exploded. This injury inspired him to relocate the engine and transmission behind the driver for safety, effectively inventing the modern Top Fuel car.

“The Great Race is a truly wonderful event that celebrates the passion that America still has for classic cars,” said Garlits. “I’m thrilled that Coker Tire asked me to be the Grand Marshall for the race this year. Coker does so much to support the car hobby that it’s nice to be able to give back.”

EASY LSA UPGRADE FROM SUPERCHARGERS ONLINE

Superchargers Online’s new LSA Performance Inlet lets Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1 and Cadillac CTS-V owners get more boost out of their superchargers with minimal effort.

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (May, 2017) – Superchargers Online, a leading distributor of superchargers and superchargers parts, is excited to announce its new LSA Performance Inlet. Built using brand new EATON factory parts, this performance inlet is a direct bolt-on upgrade for the Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1 and Cadillac CTS-V, and is available with two different size ZPE/SCOL GripTec® performance pulleys.

The LSA engine was one of General Motors’ first factory supercharged V8 engines, and when it hit the streets in 2008 under the hood of the Cadillac CTS-V, it didn’t take tuners long to start trying to extract more power. Until now, increasing the boost output from the LSA’s EATON TVS1900 supercharger meant using a hydraulic press to remove the factory pulley and then either press on a new pulley or a hub that can accept bolt-on pulleys. Now, Superchargers Online has taken the work out of the LSA pulley upgrade with its new bolt-on LSA Performance Inlet.

Superchargers Online’s LSA Performance Inlet is built using brand new EATON factory parts including a new inlet casting, new bearings, and a new bypass actuator. Increased boost comes by way of the preinstalled ZPE/SCOL GripTec® pulley which features ZPE’s patented micro machining process for increased friction between the pulley and drive belt to reduce slippage. Multiple pulley options are also available to allow owners to match the boost increase to a variety of engine upgrades – from 2.55-inches down to 2.38-inches for up to a 5psi gain.

The LSA Performance Inlet is a direct bolt-on upgrade for the 2009-2013 Cadillac CTS-V, the 2012-2015 Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1, and the Chevrolet Performance LSA crate engine, will require recalibration of the ECU. Made in the USA and backed by a 30-day warranty against manufacturer defects, the inlet comes with all parts necessary for a complete installation, including new mounting hardware, a new EATON Solid Isolator, and RTV sealant. The LSA Performance Inlet is not legal for use on pollution-controlled vehicles.

THE 53RD ANNUAL LA ROADSTER SHOW RETURNS TO THE FAIRPLEX IN POMONA

The LA Roadster Show, put on by the famous LA Roadsters car club, will be back in Pomona with the largest gathering of roadsters, hot rods, and swap meet on June 17-18, 2017.

Pomona, Calif. (May, 2017) – America’s premier event for pre-1936 hot rod and roadster enthusiasts, the LA Roadster Show, is returning to the Fairplex in Pomona for its 53rd annual event. The show, which has been put on by the LA Roadsters — one of Southern California’s most dedicated and historic car clubs — since 1960, is the largest gathering of pre-1936 roadsters in the world with over 800 to be on display this Father’s Day weekend, June 17-18, 2017.

The LA Roadster Show is a special event with a decidedly more “period-correct” feel than other contemporary hot rod and street rod shows. In addition to having one of the world’s best assemblages of pre-war roadsters, there is designated parking for pre-1977 non-roadsters (coupes, sedans, trucks and muscle cars) as well as a huge swap meet which is sure to have just the thing a show-goer needs to finish their project. The show also features a large vendor midway packed with some of the top companies in the hot rod and performance parts industry, a huge model car contest, and a “Cacklefest” which consists of a line of vintage front engine nitro-fueled dragsters that are all fired up at the same time, putting on a great show of flames, fumes, and horsepower.

The famous LA Roadsters Car Club got its start in 1957 as a small group of incredibly dedicated enthusiasts of pre-war roadsters. The club has maintained its relatively small roster with 28 active members 11 Life time members, 5 honorary members and 19 associates’ members from all over the country. LA Roadsters are easy to spot at events thanks to their traditional uniform of red shirts and white pants.

The show opens to the public on Saturday, June 17 and is open from 7am to 5pm and 7am to 4pm on Sunday. General admission for attendees ages 13 and up is $20, children ages 6-12 is $10, and children ages 5 and under get in free. Parking is $10 and the entrance to the lot is located at Gate 9 off of White Avenue or gate 17 off of McKinley Ave. There will also be numerous food vendors on site to accommodate families.

ABOUT ROADSTER SHOWS INC.

For the past 52 years the event was produced by the L.A. Roadsters car club but starting in 2017 the car club decided after 52 years it was time to step back and hand over the reins. The show is now managed by Roadster Shows Inc. a professional event management company with over 10 years experience producing hot rod, custom car and motorcycle events on the West Coast. The Roadster Shows Inc. staff has experience in sales, marketing, PR, logistics and hospitality. Look for some exciting changes to the event in the years to come.

NEW YORK, NY (May 19, 2017) – McLaren the incredible true story of motorsports legend and engineering visionary Bruce McLaren, will make its U.S. premiere in a special screening for motorsports VIPs on the eve of America’s most iconic racing weekend.

Directed by Roger Donaldson, McLaren was written by Matthew Metcalfe, Tim Woodhouse and James Brown, with Fraser Brown and Metcalfe producing. The film was made by General Film Corporation and Universal Pictures in association with the New Zealand Film Commission, Images & Sound, The Giltrap Group and FB Pictures, with funding through the New Zealand Government’s Screen Production Funding Grant and financing from the ANZ Bank.

“It’s an honor to tell Bruce McLaren’s story,” Metcalfe said. “Myself, my fellow producer, Fraser, Roger and the whole filmmaking team are excited to partner with Gunpowder & Sky to bring this tale of accomplishment and following your dreams to U.S. audiences.”

“Bruce McLaren is a legend in the automotive world,” said Jake Hanly, Gunpowder & Sky’s VP of Acquisitions. “Roger’s film paints a compelling portrait of not just the man, but also his outsized influence on Formula One and automotive culture as a whole – it’s a story of vision, audacity, and entrepreneurial grit.”

The deal was negotiated by XYZ Films with Gunpowder & Sky Distribution planning a multiplatform release for the film. This deal completes the sale of the film’s rights across the globe.
