I imagine the amount of items seen on the auction day was quite bewildering, to say the least !!

The printed auctioneers sale guide, must also have made very interesting reading.

Doubt you will ever see the like of that again, covering our vehicles.

David Farrar was a long time member and great supporter of the club, indeed there is a David Farrar Trophy.
If I said he was a little eccentric I don’t think too many would disagree. That said we’re all a little eccentric having these old cars as hobbies, may as well set fire to bundles of £20 notes!
