We’ve all got our favourite classics, and some of our choices are more popular than others. I’ll accept that the cars I’d like in my garage aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, and of course that lack of popularity means lower values, which is an added bonus. Putting potential affordability aside, I was pleased to see two Lagonda 3-Litres selling at H&H’s Duxford sale. We all knew the ex-Duke of Edinburgh car would find a new owner, but it was good to see the 1957 saloon snapped up too, at just over £21,000. It needed some re-commissioning, but the results would be worth it. Imposing, understated, well built, and pretty rapid too. For too long this model has been almost ignored by the classic movement, which begs the question why?
