    Please can you record the sale price of the E30 325i convertible? I would be very interested to see if it makes more than 5K.
    Many thanks.

    Place is mobbed. Nice cars in the parking lots too


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,284 ✭✭✭ goochy


    Wonder are they serious buyers ? They don't have a normal auction on also today do they ?
    Hope it's a success and become a regular thing.
    Interested to know how much the rolls / bentleys and merc. E class models go for.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,238 ✭✭✭ 80sDiesel


    Very packed. 10 euros in though

    Left hand green Landcruiser. Bidding stopped at 12800.
    Convertible Merc bidding stop at 3200. Thought that would get more interest


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,238 ✭✭✭ 80sDiesel


    Bidding for ratrod stalled at 3200


  • Registered Users Posts: 270 ✭✭ JP 1800


    Not surprising on the rat rod, I would not even consider that car to be road legal.

    Bad time of year to be shifting a cab E30. I would imagine if the car is clean it would be worth more in the UK. E30 prices have been on the up in the UK.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,060 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    Mods do delete or merge is ye have to. I figured though that I wouldn't spam the "today I spotted.." thread with show photos and I'd like to keep all of my photos in the one place.

    Anyway, it was a good event all things considered. Much, much better organised than the previous auction at the Show Center. The sun played havoc with photos though, so they're no show pieces. There was a great selection there, and a good autojumble. I got a good haul. Did not drive home in anything new though. Actually I had to leave after lot 30..so I only have a small number of final prices noted. The prices I have noted are just what the bidding stopped at btw. Also apologies for my handwriting, I didn't have much to lean on while standing. And also again, my list was outdated by about a week and most of the cars that went through in the first 30 lots weren't actually on it..hence the scrawling on the back.

    There was a really good turn out. I would like to see this turned into a more regular thing.

    -

    Anyway...I managed to get the four books here for a fiver! And the radio for €20.

    Well..I was only present for the first 30 lots through the auction. And none of those were without a bid. I'm not sure how things went after that as I had to leave.

    If anyone has any prices or comments on other cars do feel free to post below.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18 ✭✭✭ mk1eighty


    How much did the g wagon make. Needed a fair bit of work but complete.

    Good man! Thanks for the info was curious to see what some of them went for.

    No bother. I would have stayed longer to check out the Fuego and a few others but sadly had to dash.

    The green Corona is there for €1500.
    Thanks for the info.
    Anyone know what happened with the Simca?

    Haha, no doubt.

    I'm not sure that much of the cars today were particular bargains such that one could buy to flip on, though. €1k for a Saab with 270k miles for example. That said the Xr2i and V reg Corona were quite cheap, if they sold.


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 22,613 ✭✭✭✭ beertons


    That 83 Golf in the first post looks nice.


  • Registered Users Posts: 694 DakarVert


    Anyone know how good the Xr2i was?

    Was trying to buy it last May, Was in a garage and they knew nothing about it so didn't go view.

    1963 GT Cortina Estate ? :eek:

    Anorak goes on....
    No such thing unfortunately unless it one of ~20 made for Nairobi Police which were built and exported in 1965 .... those would be the airflow model (not preairflow of 1963).
