  1. This is part of the reasons why I prefer classic cars.

    Several cars in the village were hit a couple months back, the damage was the exhaust either side of the CAT along with a bent wing from the pricks lifting it for Jack access and a bent floor pan on the owners car I knew.
    Unfortunately this is going to get worse before it gets better as Police rarely follow up such crimes due to little chance of catching them or achieving a prosecution.

    The attack locally to me only resulted in a crime reference number being provided for insurance purposes.

    CCTV only provides a deterrent but these people cover their faces, turn up in a unregistered or hot car and are generally tooled up literally, most garages are not big enough for modern cars so not sure what can be done?

    Perhaps some sort of legislation on sales of secondhand CATs being only through regulated vehicle dismantlers? Again so hard to enforce…..

    A couple of online options



  2. Is it just the Esprit then I wonder, have they gone out of favour?

    I doubt the JPS will reach £63k second time around and the reserve is lower than £60k so that looks like a tactical error or false hopes from Bonhams.

    That Essex reached half of what they fetched in the peak which was the biggest surprise, perhaps the high estimates put buyers off?

    What’s the next project Barry? Another Stag or a surprise 😁
