OLD AND NEW TO­GETHER

Mathew­sons’ up­com­ing sale high­lights the rise of the neo-clas­sic

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

The first of seven Mathew­sons sales in 2016 kicks off on Satur­day, 27 Fe­bru­ary, with a se­lec­tion of stylish mod­ern clas­sics lin­ing up along­side the more staid, tra­di­tional choices.

In­ter­est in younger cars is clearly on the as­cen­dancy, with many re­cent and up­com­ing sales fea­tur­ing 1990-on­wards cars. Mathew­sons is of­fer­ing a 2000 Alfa Romeo Spi­der Twin-Spark, a 1999 Porsche Boxster and a 1997 MercedesBenz SLK230 Kom­pres­sor, while for those who want to carry loads ex­ceed­ing this trio’s boot ca­pac­i­ties, a 1998 Vaux­hall As­tra 1.6 es­tate in posh-per­son’s GLS trim could fit the bill nicely.

Two low-mileage mo­tors de­serve to at­tract strong bid­ding in Thorn­ton-Le- Dale. A 1974 MGB GT in rare fac­tory black, with just 17,000 miles on the clock, should get en­thu­si­asts buzzing with ex­cite­ment. On the other hand, a 1978 Ford Es­cort Pop­u­lar Plus four-door that’s cov­ered 20,000 miles from new is one worth closer in­spec­tion. 01751 474455 www.mathew­sons.co.uk
