Another well attended, mega busy Saturday auction at Kings Lynn. No surprises there. With 271 lots on offer and a packed auction room there was literally something for everyone. But were there any surprises once the sale got under way?
Unusually for classic car auctions it was free to enter the recent Coys auction at the Excel London. Did it turn out value for money or do you get what you pay for?
We are well and truly in to 2019 now. It’s time we looked back at 2018 and in doing so made a few predictions. Here goes. Don’t judge us!
“What the hell is that?!” - we detected our business Partner, Neil, whose responsibility was getting what we purchased back on the road wasn’t happy. If we weren’t 100% sure about that, he removed all doubt as he turned away and walked back across the yard where our recovery truck was dropping off the Splitty to his office. Hmmm, we both thought. What to do now? Keep quiet, unload the truck and he’ll calm down.
Five and half hours after leaving East London, we are bumping down a single lane farm track with low dense hedges either side, towards a closed five bar gate wondering where Sally SatNav had led us this time. We are about two miles from Newquay in Cornwall, but we might as well be in the middle of nowhere. We decide to stop and call our contact...
You’ve been looking for a particular model for a while. You must have read every on-line advert in the last month. You’ve become quite an anorak on model derivative’s, build numbers, colours, trim, wheels, how many left/how many made, most of all, the price, but….. you just cannot find the right one.
Then along comes a great looking car. The history is right. The mileage is good. Everything looks good. Except for one thing. The price. It’s too cheap. Then, right down at the foot of the advert, you see that Declaration; “this car was previously written off as part of an insurance claim”. What to do? Jump in or run a mile?
