It’s always a difficult call for auctioneers to turn cars down, but sometimes I get the feelingthat businesses will take too many examples of a certain model, if only to make up the numbers. But there comes a point where punters surely get sick of looking at the umpteenth MGB, Mercedes-Benz SL or Triumph Stag. A couple of dealers I’ve spoken to said it’s better to have fewer lots but more variety, rather than bulking up the numbers with scruffy late-1990s sports cars (MG TFs and derivatives in particular) or mid-sized saloons. Punters aren’t stupid, they know it’s a desperate attempt to make a larger catalogue. If you said it’s not big, and it’s not clever, I’d agree.
