Some readers of this blog will be only too well aware of my enduring love affair with classic 80’s and 90’s motor cars. I have been a member of some classic websites for some time, notably Pistonheads.On this site I am a massive fan of the Shed Of The Week feature, in which something off beam is found in the claasified for less than £1,000.
However I recently came across this auction site. Do have a look if you like this generation of motor car. Now I am not a great fan of auction sites, indeed I only use Ebay if I am desperate, however its been a while since I have seen so much classic metal in one place. Granted many of the vehicles are left hnd drive and there is a little dross and a few very over priced items as well. The only other downside is the trip to the mainland to pick the vehicle up and then having to drive it home.
My top picks from this particular page are the Jaguar XJS convertible, The Ford Sierra Sapphire Cosworth and the Lotus Elam M100. Proper 1980’s and early 1990’s classics 🙂
There are some clangers in there. Read the american stuff (I have never been a fan of american cars) and 2 surprises from France. A Peugeot 505 V6 and a Renault 4 GTL.
