rare FBS Cencus sold at auction - Sofa Spud
I've just clicked on the link about the rare FBS Census sports car sold at auction, one of only 5 made. I also looked at more pics of these cars on Google images.

My verdict - so ugly that if you pranged it you would notice the dents!

Except that GRP would split, rather than dent - silly me! But then you wouldn't notice the bad patching.

I blinked at these two

1965 Sunbeam Alpine Series III £1,800 provisional
1989 Lancia Delta Integrale LHD £1,700 provisional

Now unless they were complete basket cases needing a shed load of dosh to make roadworthy, these would be good pocket money cars for fun days.

Maybe they represent the real world of old cars that are useable (if so, I'll have both) rather than the airy-fairy nonsense of dealer ads in glossy classic car magazines, aimed - I guess - at separating investment bankers from their bonuses.

They both drove through and looked superficially okay, but were both way off their reserves so don't take these provisional bids as indication of what they could actually fetch.
