    I have a few unavoidably low quality photos from today as well as a list of final bids for each lot. People mustn't have been too happy with the last one because today was much smaller in comparison. I think there were about 70 entries last time versus 40 today. Some nice cars, some not so nice. Some crazy prices too. Placed a bid on the Montego myself but didn't chase it. Picked up a few bits for a car at home at the autojumble and that was all. Prices I have noted just denote where bidding stopped. Feel free to add your own photos or comments below.

    Would love that Micra!

    Funnily enough the Micra was sold by the same garage that sold my Subaru, Barkel Motors. It was nice but kinda rough and had 170k miles. I went €100 on it. The 94 Camry went for €200 no reserve


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 22,619 ✭✭✭✭ beertons


    The lad who bought that Ferrari bought 2 others aswell, I met 3 classic's and another in convoy on the Rathangan road on the way home.

    996 was a bargain. Some crazy prices both high and low. And why can't they say if a car actually sold / made the reserve?

    After the last auction I paid €5 for a snapshot which was due to come out the following week or something, but I got an email the following morning (Monday) to say my money was refunded and there will be no snapshot because some owners didn't want people knowing what their cars sold for and some buyers didn't want people knowing what they bought for..:rolleyes:

    I'm surprised you didn't buy the Montego. Very clean classic for the money!

    I thought it was going to be mine for a grand :( It seemed to be getting no attention while on display. It was on donedeal for €1900 so I'd say for the sake of a few hundred the owner will let it go for the €1500

    No No No No No No Noooooooooooooo. You've had a lucky escape. What a horrible motor car. I drove one as a hire car back in 1989 and it was just landfill in waiting even then.:D

    Very impressed at how inexpensive the older cars are. Five Grand for a 1936 ford seems nothing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,062 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    Keep in mind the buyer must pay a buyer's fee, indemnity fee an VAT

    About €800 in fees on that Ford

    First of many to start appearing on donedeal after today. Bidding went to €3300 on this

    This car didn't make the reserve at €3300 and was withdrawn. Its now for sale at the reserve set for auction. The car is a very good example and is rust free but needs a few little bits and bobs doing to it. I have all the bits and pieces needed to bring it to a very good standard.


    The car belongs to a friend of mine


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,062 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    It is a nice car, I had a look at it today. To be honest I wasn't expecting the reserve to be so high, but old Mercs certainly aren't my forte.

    Out of mindless interest to myself I will post up a few links to cars from today over the next week or two..


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,691 ✭✭✭✭ Wishbone Ash


    Would love that Micra!
    Those alloy wheels do nothing for it IMO.

    €200 for the Camry seems ok. Not a particularly exciting car but should be a bit of a novelty in another few years.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,529 ✭✭✭ kyote00


    Jeez, did the Alfa Gt Junior really go for about €6k :eek:

    even in rough order, that would be 10-12k in the UK

    There's not a hope in hell it actually sold for that!

    I doubt it sold. The highest bid was €6600 but that doesn't mean it sold.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,699 ✭✭✭ Cheensbo


    Did the ls400 sell for 650? looks pretty tidy from your 2 photos

    I'm not sure. It was very clean bar a little dent on the back bumper, and it had an odd wheel on the front right hand side but that might just have been the spare

    It even had a bit of tax on it!

    Out of NCT for many years. Probably won't pass without spending money. New owner probably a dick just like the old owner. Thinking the NCT doesn't apply to them.

    What was the condition of the Beetle like? Not the most desirable of years but the money seems pretty good?

    Beetle was nice and solid but the red paint had gone pink in places.
