After a couple of months of build-up, the Gosford Classic Car Museum auction has finally wrapped up, with final bidding taking place on location this weekend.
With a massive number of cars being shuffled off to new homes, and a finite number of buyers, it was the perfect storm for some strange results.
But spokesperson for the auction, and former F1 world champ, Alan Jones sees the results in a positive light.
“Proof that the Australian market is really strong came with only two international bidders successfully winning cars. It proves that Aussie car collectors value their classic cars and heritage,” says Jones.
“I am not surprised at the prices achieved in this world-class auction over the weekend attracting international attention.
”The cars got what they deserve, in a fantastic event which served as a true send-off in what was an emotional day of mixed feelings for both Lloyds Auctions and the Gosford Museum.”
