Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

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.
