How to buy a classic car at auction
Quentin Willson says "Ah, I hear you ask, why buy at a classic car auction - surely it's better to buy from a little old lady with a 1959 Mini in a barn? Well they are an endangered species sadly, and the great thing about classic car auctions is all the cars are in one place. So there is a time and opportunity cost saving - you don't have to go thrashing around the country looking at over-described cars, and you have certain legal safeguards as well. Old cars at these auctions have to be described honestly and transparently and if there's an issue over the car's past or its ownership, then the auction company checks all this stuff out so you don't have to."
