A few pics I took at the NEC today

Mk3 Cortina with all the Patina sorting the men from the boys on the way in. A healthy puff of blue smoke from the old pinto with each prod of the loud pedal!

Hard working guys on our club stand flying the flag for us in Hall 8. Big thanks to @stephens_xpack @Ray Nick and Ian for their efforts

Silverstone Auction Stand. How the mighty have risen. Look at that line of Classic Fords in there amongst thebl E Types and Astons! The Black RS500, unsurprisingly, getting a lot of attention but the hammer price on both of the 3 door Cosworths they had was north of £100k.

Ford exotica GT40's. Can you spot the kits from the genuine articles?

High performance Road registered track day car assembled from a Magnum Panel built shell. Still fancy that Porsche Cayman for your trackdays?

And a few non Fords.

Ooooooh, sweet.

steps around the back to admire air-cooled flat 6. Wait, WTF is this witchcraft?! 🤣

Now this is Dowsett Cars 1930'S ERA Alfa Romeo race replica with MX5 engine box and running gear. I think it's stunning!

And last but not least, lunch. It was OK, but £35? Jesus wept!

That was for two of us but still, ouch. Prices were £7 to £8 for hot dogs at stalls around the place and I'd have probably needed to go back for a second one by mid afternoon if I'd opted for that choice

You’ll know next time, take a pack up and a flask 👍

Presumably they were pedigree for that sort of money?

The Cayman would be considerably cheaper though, likewise maybe an RS3 as well! LOL!

Results here. 47k for the Twin Cam and 66k for the R1600

That's really odd. I bet the owners would be disappointed with that. Those same cars fetched similar money here and your market is usually 50% up on ours for the same models. Yet I see that Sierra and Escort Cosworths are fetching incredibly good money. So the steam has gone out of the Old Skool Market do you think?

Maybe but the white RS2000 made £52,800 which is pretty strong when compared to the TC and the RS1600! I was surprised at the two RS500 Cosworth's both selling at sub £90k. Some cheap Capri's though! I see Mike Brewer liquidating some of his stock ! ! !
