Blue Chip Hybrid: 1965 Sunbeam Tiger

September 7, 2017 – 04:34 am
1955 Triumph TR2

This 1965 Sunbeam Tiger is a restored example with all the features we would want, including a sharp color combo. The restoration includes nice details like an all-leather interior, wool carpeting, and a canvas top.  We don’t see many Tigers with cosmetics this impressive. Find it  here on eBay in Orlando, Florida with bidding above $25k and the reserve unmet.

Just over 7, 000 Tiger roadsters were built, and this one looks great in its deep blue paint and matching blue canvas top. The metal side molding helps elongate the short-wheelbase car visually, and just looks right . Alpines lack this trim piece, as do the Mk II Tigers. The Shelby wheels look very clean though not overly polished, and the ride height appears to be spot-on. The chrome headlight rings freak us out a bit on these early cars, but the overall level of this one’s cosmetics easily carries it.

The light grey wool carpeting and matching leather interior looks very well done and the restored factory steering wheel us awesome to see in place instead of the aftermarket items that were added to so many of these cars. The 66k miles on the clock registers on a speedometer that’s part of a set of  Jaeger gauges, all laid out nicely in the real wood instrument panel.

Investment advice

The residual effects of the Enron (ENE) debacle are slowly, but surely, beginning to PERMEATE the investment landscape. In many instances it is hard to know whether the secondary problems are critically severe, or just a case of paranoid investors overreacting to ghosts. In 1997, ENE was a rather ordinary gas distribution company trading at $20/share. In the 1998-2000 period, the stock rocketed to nearly $85/share, because of celebrious views about their on-line commodity trading capabilities, an 18,000-mile fiber-optic cable and ultimately, the perceived 'rewards' from the California electricity crisis. Management gradually succumbed to the temptation to artificially inflate earnings with artful 'financial engineering' techniques and, all the while, they piled up debt and preferred...

Good Times:Morgan Stanley lost 5 Billion on RE..

2010-04-14 13:57:41 by secureourborders


April 14 (Bloomberg) -- Morgan Stanley, once the biggest property investor among Wall Street banks, expects to lose $5.4 billion, or 61 percent, of its $8.8 billion global fund, said a person familiar with the situation.
The firm sent a fourth-quarter update to clients in recent weeks showing the 2007 fund was likely to recover $3.4 billion of its investments, said the person, who declined to be identified because the information isn’t public. A spokesman for New York-based Morgan Stanley declined to comment.
Morgan Stanley raised the fund, Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund VI International, toward the end of the property surge when market prices were at or near the peak. At the time, it was the largest private fund targeting high-return real estate investments.

CIA Executive Director “Buzzy” Krongard managed firm that handled “PUT” options on United Airline Stock
Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed -- the firm used to place the “put options” on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency.
Until 1997 A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown. A.B. Brown was acquired by Banker’s...
