To our Yenko Group, and for the enjoyment of the rest of us smiling smiley ... It looks like YS-050 will be on the block with MECUM in Glendale next month. As always, it will be interesting to see where it goes $$$ with No Reserve.

[www.mecum.com]

Would any of you Yenko Dudes/Dudettes care to comment on this example of the Yenko? I presume the Owner is on Corvair Center... Also, is the YS Registry a public document or just available to those who are a member or own one?

Thanks for playing.

Thanks Phil! UGH - I actually searched CC for this topic but only used YS-050. Sorry for the duplication here.

Anyhow, folks can consider the above questions here or the other thread.

Matt, is there a way to combine threads?

Getting some sketchy leads on YS-001. Which if I remember correctly, with Corvairs being first, would be the first Yenko built. Do anyone have history on this car. Anything extra special to look for?

YS-001 is owned by Phil Gardner in Ohio, recently purchased from Ed Cuneen.

YS-050 is a great car that was owned and restored by its original owner, the well known Corvair racer, Bruce Carleton, up until about a year ago. Car was never bad, was stored for many years and is in excellent shape. It wa picked up by a flipper and will probably sell for well north of 100k at auction.

It is indeed, Mike! I found myself needing some Yenko Decklid flaps a couple years ago and 2 days before a vacation, Bruce knocked out 6 pairs in Carbon Fiber for me. He’s one of the people that make this hobby so damn fun!
