Bank Holiday Bargains at Auction Today

Mon, 01 May 2006
Despite the crowds of private buyers, there were still bargains to be had at auction today. Though perhaps not this highly collectible 95N Suzuki Cappuccino which, despite 82k miles, made a serious £2,100.
And you can tell it’s soft-top season by the £7,950 made by a 37k mile 2002/52 MX5 1.8 Sport 6-speed. But there were still enough cheap cars to make the trip out to Blackbushe worthwhile.

Here’s a longer list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid. n/s means not sold.
