 Right then, for all those who have been asking overnight, here's a summary of the Scootacars & things from Day 1;

 The Scootacar Mk 1 made $34,000 (£21,915).

 The Scootacar Mk 2 made $44,000 (£28,361).

 Rob Dobie's old Bond Mk C, JAP 369/PXH 744 made $12,000, (£7,734)

 For our Richard's amusement  ;) the 1950 Bond Mk A made $9,000  (£5,801) and the Mk B made $17,000 (£10,957)

 Once again, 15% fees are to be added to the above hammer prices.

 Coke Goggo Transporter ($120,000) and the Peel P50 ($105,000) are still the highest grossing cars so-far.

 So, looking ahead to tonight, the expected highlights of tonight's action includes the Brutsch Mopetta (Lot 560), the Dubble Bubble Goggo Transporter (lot 563), Messerschmitt KR201 roadster (lot564), Dr Hans Jopjen's second-from-last KR200 built (lot 569), the Wattadrag V* Hotwheels Isetta (Lot 584, it's hideous I know, but reports suggest the Americans are set to go potty to get their hands on it!) The Peel Trident (Lot 587 and $105,000 to beat...) Bob Purton's first Inter (lot 590)  then comes the Messerchmitt Tiger (lot 603 & got to do well to restore Messerschmitt honour against the Peels  ;)   The Brutch Roller leaves the Weiner collection for a second time at lot 632, and last but not least  ;) the very last lot, 642, the Larmar. Will certain somebodies connected with the ICR get their grubby little mitts on it as intended we wonder. Come dawn, the answer will be known...  ;)

Hmm, I concede with Al then , they are not appreciating the rare cars only the ascetically pleasing.

am i wrong ? i am much more interested in the unrestored frisky , fuldamobil etc and the driveable condition ex-dobie Bond . the fun of of owning your own project or restoration is so much better than just buying in ready done - for me anyway - but this comes from someone who hasn't had a car on the road for years . i still wouldnt buy someone elses resto - unless it was for immediate use on the road .

stu was the Bond A the unrestored bare ally one ? thanks

As at Christies a lot of owners will be running around thinking their cars are suddenly worth a fortune forgetting that these prices are part of what is the occasion and in most cases unrepeatable in a single private sale.

I agree, also as discussed the American auction system is somewhat different, bidders are usually prompted by floor men to keep the bids going, but these prices are simply relative to those bidding, i.e. a room full of millionaires! Whereas 10k may be the limit of the average man in the street, it's 100k for them. Goodbye affordable hobby!  >:(

Anyone want to hazard a guess to how much money BW will clear from this auction? A bit like guessing the how many Smarties in a jar, but you don't win a prize.  ;D

Anyone else think this is a load of old nonsense. Whoever is bidding clearly hasn't got the slightest clue about what they're buying as not only is everything massively overvalued, but the relative prices of each lot are all totally out of wack. I guess if money's no object it's better than leaving it sat in the bank, but like the coke van, it's all a bit of a joke really.

I totally agree, the prices make no sense. It would be easy to conclude that the buyers are idiots but the fact that they HAVE the money to squander suggests otherwise! I dont know that its a joke but BW is certainly laughing! ;D

Million dollars for the Tiger?, my guess is it wont make that. Now watch for egg on my face!
