back in the garage

After successive Covid lockdowns saw legions of tinkerers taking to garages and sheds across the nation, I rather thought we were through with crisis-induced garage projects, but the fuel shortage which came and (largely) went while putting this issue to press saw a return of the ‘might as well take it apart while we’re not using it’ philosophy. The subject was a ride-on mower which had apparently started spitting sparks from the cutter deck, something which was traced to a clash between two of the many pulleys, in turn caused by a loose engine mounting. With nobody wanting to be ‘that guy’ pictured filling a jerry can on the evening news, the grass was left to grow while it was dismantled. I’m used to working on machinery of this vintage, but the…

review: classic car auctions, stoneleigh, september 25

Despite the pandemic putting paid to the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show earlier this year, the event’s auction element was still able to take place at Stoneleigh Park on September 25. Run by Classic Car Auctions, the sale featured over 100 cars from across the decades, some mild and some considerably more wild. German brands were especially prevalent, with an interesting contrast amongst the Porsches. A 996-generation 911 Carrera 2 from 1997 and a 2003 Carrera 4 looked like bargains at £7770 and £9990 respectively, but older transaxle cars surpassed expectations, with a very tidy 1986 924 S offered without reserve making £9345 and a 1990 944 S2 Convertible selling for £20,535. It was a good day for 1980s BMWs too, with an unrestored, 18,000-mile E30 325i achieving £18,315, a…

review: brightwells, september 16

YOU COULD HAVE BOUGHT… Brightwells’ September sale was another of their popular timed online events and as we’ve come to expect, the online bidding was brisk. Especially, it has to be said, when it came to the more unusual lots, of which our favourite was the Honda Integra Type R which commanded a total of £11,486 – significantly higher than a fully loaded Prelude of similar vintage managed. An unusually tidy BMW E36 325tds was one for a BMW fan who was prepared to pay £2968 after fees to own this rarity, while an early Porsche 924 was another unusual sight, ranking up there alongside the Rover 213S. As for more traditional fare, a Mk2 Jaguar looked like good value at £5712 even if it was the 240 model, while a £3248 ’79…

review: historics, ascot, september 25

Despite the clamour for fuel causing mayhem in the local district and beyond, Historics’ latest classic sale at Ascot Racecourse on September 25 was still met by a full auction hall and some 1000 visitors across all three viewing days. Pleasingly, the relaxed atmosphere was in complete contrast to many a frenzied garage forecourt, with 165 varied entries for visitors to witness. In any case, the need for petrol won’t be pressing for some of the lots, as restoration projects proved to be exceptionally strong performers. The highlight had to be a 1982 Lamborghini Countach 5000 S in need of a full rebuild, which drew very significant interest and sold for £257,600 – a whopping 43 per cent above its top estimate. In addition, a no-reserve 1936 Bentley Saloon by Hooper…
