The rising interest in modern classics isn’t a new thing – not by any means. Some readers might be interested/disheartened to know that some of the later cars offered at ACA’s sale (reviewed this week) were not only interesting to me, but to plenty of other punters too. I don’t want to sound controversial, but the Rover Sterling hatchback and the Ford Scorpio Ultima 24v drew plenty of interest, and the big Ford was bid up to £4000, the Rover a bit of a bargain at just over a grand. Now I know plenty of enthusiasts will say there’s no room for these later cars in a classic auction. But if there was no interest, why did they sell? And that applies to the early, low-mileage Nissan Micra as well. The classic movement is ever-changing, and long may that continue, whatever the matching-fleece wearers might say.
