Last week, for an as yet unexplained reason, some browsers did not permit access to Sandy Cotterman’s excellent story about the recent auction of the Baillon Collection at Retromobile in Paris.
Buick, Olds, Pontiac, Rover, Morgan, MG, Triumph, TVR, Apollo, and Brabham Engine
In possibly the final chapter on the 215 cid engine and its many lives, we present images of the Apollo owned by MMR readers Bud and Stephanie Bourassa (no relation) of Scottsdale Arizona. This is one of the early cars and Bud is its second owner. The original owner was a California lady who bought two new Apollos, one for her and one for her son. She sold her car on Craig’s List when she went into a nursing home. Bud had owned one before, sold it and regretted the sale. He was driving home from a trip when a phone call from a friend alerted him that this car was on Craig’s List. He called immediately and bought it. It had 59K klms on it and was white with a black vinyl interior. Read more about Apollos here.
