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?
