ACA’s run of big sales and even big­ger prices was am­ple proof (if proof were needed) that the clas­sic car mar­ket is still strong. But how many other auc­tion­eers must have looked at some of the prices, in­clud­ing just over ten grand for a VW Polo G40 and al­most 15 grand for a Toy­ota HiLux pick-up truck, and won­dered how the East of Eng­land auc­tion­eer does it?

Get­ting around 2000 pun­ters through its doors to see nearly 300 cars was a good start on ACA’s part, and it’s clear that sim­ply driv­ing mo­tors through re­ally gees up the bid­ding. But are some sales be­com­ing a bit of an oc­ca­sion in the clas­sic cal­en­dar and draw­ing peo­ple in just be­cause of that? If so, that’s got to be good for the old car move­ment as a whole.
