Problem is, I wouldn't know what you looked like as it was at least 3 days since I saw you :getmecoat: . I was there with a blue SAB Helicopters jacket. Cars fetched more than I thought they might. I thought it was a good price for the Lotus considering there would be a buyers premium to be added bringing the winning bidders total up to

I'll get around to it at some point.

I would be suprised if he sold it, though it has stuck around for so long he may bite the bullet. A provisional bid means there was a reserve on that didn't get met and they have to refer it to the seller.

Well looking at Barons website, its back in the auction again for the 24th March, so it didn't sell.

FYI, Vat is only payable on the commission, not the vehicle unless its a commercial vehicle thats subject to VAT. You'll find that these types of auctions have a slightly higher commission than the likes of Manheim or BCA who do volume so are able to take less.

Personally, that car looks like a dog with flea's, i know alot of you guys did alot of work on it, but you had to make the best with what you had. Its a shame after what i read what happened in the end, i just hope you guys didn't take it too personally and that this incident didnt totally destroy your faith in humanity.

I wonder if it will ever find a caring owner............
