Little Cars at Big Prices: Berkeley B-95

While we occasionally encounter expensive mini and microcars, the prices of the little cars we love are usually at the low end of the spectrum. (Just check out the May 2008 issue of Keith Martin's Sports Car Market, where sales at a recent Florida auction were labeled, "Microcars at Microprices.")
That's why we were surprised to see the $38,000 price tag on this 1959 Berkeley B-95 (listed on Race-cars.com). While a B-95 is harder to find than the more common SE 328 or SE 492 versions -- and this car appears to have received a full race prep -- $38K is the height of sticker shock in the Berkeley community. Perhaps that's why this "pocket rocket" has been listed for sale for the past couple of years.
