I can’t believe a year has passed since I visited the London Classic Car Show at the ExCeL in London, but somehow it has. The show seemed to be a little smaller perhaps this year, though the layout was different so I could easily be mistaken. As alway there were many fantastic cars to see and many for sale also. I didn’t spend so much time watching the parade this year though what I did see did look fantastic also, especially since there were a couple of very non-original cars included in the line up.

As you can see this spot is a lovely 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish S with a very clever (if illegal) private number plate that is supposed to spell out ‘Bond’.

Another spot at the COYS auction on Saturday is this Saab 99 Turbo, which is something of an icon car. The guide price £9,000-£12,500 with a clever quote nearby that states how you cannot put a price on the thrill that driving a 99 Turbo provides. Continue reading “Auction Spot #57”
