FADE TO GREY

A sea of grey haired collectors seem to keep the over restored classic vehicle world alive by selling them to one another without ever using them, im sure a few bombed yesterday though, if it wasnt rusty it generally underachieved.


Both Speedway bikes made well under £2,000.




These glorious trucks were on the road and both fetched £6k +, brilliant for next years Hayride (with hay !)


Festering XK Jag went to a brave man for over 8 grand.



and the bike that a lot of people had gone for, a seized solid relic of a Manx with Gold Star motor made £12,075...



The full catalogue with photos and auction results is still on Bonhams

Love that Buick Pete; never seen one before. As for the Jag XK120, reckon Jerry could have that bodged up in no time...

Oi ! Moffie, you mean lovingly restore to it's original splendour. It's bit like a certain white mk2 i'm au-fait with.........

Oi! Alter-ego, is your idea of white actually red then?

the price of rust certainly seems to be buoyant
