SO – WHAT ELECTION?
Last year we had ‘that’ Europe Referendum, the year before a General Election. And here we go again, staring down the barrel of yet another General Election, and no doubt we’ll be seeing all sorts of comments about how the vote will impact on the buying and selling of classics.
The classic market has remained buoyant following the last two big votes and there is absolutely no reason why that shouldn’t continue after the next election. Enthusiasts are a pretty hardy bunch who will stick with their hobby come hell or high water – or whatever the classic equivalent of that happens to be.
That same stoical attitude is also found in auctioneers and dealers, who simply want to get on with selling cars. Enthusiasts want to buy, no matter what the opinion polls might be saying and what the newspapers are telling us. The business of buying and selling will carry on, irrespective of what’s going on in Westminster.
Which means that while the media goes into election frenzy we’ll carry on with this first-rate hobby. So if you don’t mind, I’ve got a few tasks to attend to down in the garage.
