Yes, coverage like that is bad news , still I think in the present economic climate there may still be some cheap lots. Let face it , the stock isn't exactly up to the Wiener sale standard!

I've placed a commission bid via the auctioneer's website, so for me it's now a waiting game for what I hope will be one of the less popular lots.  It would be nice to be there.  Anyone here going?

You want a Peel for sale?
I have heard there is someone selling a Trident through RM Auctions in the UK
I have no link or other info as you apparently have to be signed up with them to get a catalog.
Don't know when it is/was set to be auctioned off.

The Auction company was sending out emails trying to find a "value" for it.
This could be old news by now.

This may put the prices up a bit, but that is good news for the Bubble car museum, and long may it thrive!

News to me... 

Only UK auction RM wise is in a couple of weeks

No Peel in that lot.  Although Stuart might fancy the '77 Allegro (British Leyland mechanically propelled excreta at its finest hour). Goes by the name of "All Ego".   

Nice!

Sad, they are gone now. I was very interested in the Sharps or the Bond MK2   :'( :'(
