Mclela Blaze Kit Car For Sale
Just got a heads up that a Mclela Blaze Kit Car we have pics of from several years ago is currently for sale on Craigslist. Back in 2009 Shannon posted a few photos a reader submitted of a Black Mclela that was on eBay in Florida. The Car had a 2006 sticker on it so I am guessing the pics were from a few years prior. I seen the car on the interwebs and if I recall it did not sell for anywhere near the asking price today. It was a really sharp looking car. Then again I have a soft spot for that car and it is one of my “Cars that got away” as you can see here
Well fast forward to 2015 and the car has found its way to Craigslist with an asking price of $15,000 . Yup that was not a typo. $15,000 and does not look anything like it does in the old pics. Granted it does just look dusty
Here is what the seller has to say about it …
I have a kit car with a Porsche engine honestly that’s all I know right now it was a gift to me and as you can see in the pictures its been sitting for a while it will need the carbs cleaned synced and a good tune but shouldn’t need more than that…I really don’t want to get rid of it but financial problems are forcing my hand so make an offer!
I need to point out that as far as VW kit cars goes the Mclela Blaze Kit Car is about my all time favorite. There is no question about it. What Ray Lombard created is just stunning if you ask me. BUT with that being said I cant recall one that I have seen over the years that topped $7000-$8000 much less get $15,000 . Granted they do not come up for sale that often but $15,000 is not even close to what these cars are worth. But then again if someone will pay anything close to it more power to the seller.
I know a reader or two of this little website has a Blaze, so what are your thoughts on it? What do you think is a reasonable price for this car?
