CNBC 'The Car Chasers' tonight at 10PM premiere

New series beginning tonight, they feature a 1981 Ferrari-I can't find what model however. I'm not expecting a lot from the show, but will DVR the episode to find out.

Remember too, it was an '81, underpowered, etc, etc.. not QV or an early carb for that matter which probably would've bought a bit more.

Well that was a waste of twenty minutes (couldn't stand any more). Hate this trend of redneck/low life car shows. Makes Top Gear USA look good.

Haven't seen it, but it sounds like a sort of rip off of "Chasing Classic Cars," except they use Guldens instead of Grey Poupon.

Speaking of Grey Poupon ...

I think they paid $21,000 and sold it for $23,750. What a waste of time to watch this BS! We should produce our own show to really let people know what is really going on with our cars, My 2 cents.

Same principle as "Counting Cars" on History. You see one episode....you've pretty much seen them all.

At least on Counting Cars they had an episode with Elvira Mistress of the Dark!

Hello all, I have not introduced myself as of yet, but I have come to find out today, I now own the car that was featured on this show.

I purchased it last week from a dealer locally. Still has the dent in the roof though.

Congrats on the purchase. You have found the right place for any question you may have.

That is cool. The color was nice I thought. So what happened to the auction buyer? He was yet another dealer who resold to you?
