Better link is to just go to
http://microcar.org/blog/
to see each day.

Had connection issues on the Preview Day, very difficult to post anything.
I am pretty sure this is resolved for the 2 Auction Days.

Note: FIXED THE LINK ABOVE

I see they've been through the dustbins already! Good man.

No rush from Blighty to get over there in the end then? Clearly most of us are skint.

Yes, I too notice that hardly anyone British is excited about it, I dont think its that everyone is scint, its just that there is something so unBritish about the whole thing. The Americans love a circus, you just have to see there elections to appreciate that. Maybe its resentment that so many of the worlds rarest microcars have ended up in the US, the land of the gas guzzler? I don't know? Maybe we are afraid that it will set new price precedents like the last one, Bruce walks away with his divorce paid for whilst the real enthusiasts see the cars they aspired to own put further out of reach. Not sure which theory I subsriibe to but have heard all the a fore mentioned expressed.

Lucky Bruce. I made that Villiers cut away engine for him about a year ago, along with the BMW 300 & Sachs 200 sectioned engines. I had never done that sort of thing, but as I have a full size Bridgeport milling machine it was easy. I was very pleased with how the engines came out.  Nick.

The BMW motor went for over  $5,000.   !!!!        I reckon the sachs might go for a bit more, we'll see.           Nick.

Breaking News!  The Peel P50 sets the highest price of the auction so far, at $105,000. (£77,000 inc 15% fees etc) A new World Record Peel price I belive...   Messerschmitts coming in on estimate or just under. Isettas are going BIG money way over estimates. Has the tide turned away from Regonsberg towards Stuttgart we wonder....   :)
