I didn't see anyone I would readily identify as a foreigner, but a lot of the bids were knocked down to Online Bidders.

Hi Boys,

One of the members of the VMVC who attended college the auction reckons the a lot of the military stuff was in poor condition and very overpriced. He also said those paying top dollar on line would most likely be disappointed.

We checked out the GB at Corowa and after some group discussion felt $10 - 12k would be a fair price. It had some rush in the fire wall and some other problems.

Cheers,

Mick

Hi Eric,

The owner was asking $20k - we all thought it was steep.  No one ready to beat down his door to buy it.

I haven't any pic's - others might ?

Cheers,

Mick

You can't fault the seller or the auctioneer for setting prices. It's an auction and the prices were solely set by the bidders themselves. But perhaps the descriptions could have been a bit more comprehensive. For example, Lot 1900 was thought by thought by many who saw it to most likely be a modern repro. But then again, the 2 Online Bidders who fought over it should have had an independent assessment of the item before such spirited bidding.

Almost without exception, the bids on lots that caused the most surprises went to online bidders. Onsite bids tended to be a little more restrained and realistic. I did learn though that there is serious money in Enamel Signs.

What did the Saracen go for?  Rumors were that it hadn't been run for about 30 years.

Lot 2291

Could not be started on the weekend of the auction, no idea when it last ran.

Both Ferrets ran and drove. Lot 2271 and Lot 2283.

(I'm beginning to think this is diverging a little from the Gunbuggy thread!)

And of course, we're all interested in the Series 3 FFR, Lot 2287. This was an interesting vehicle, ex-Arty with fittings for FACE computer, but in poor, non going condition.

Apparently it didn't run from the time it was moved from another site in Newcastle.

PS someone didn't keep up to date or update their information in the last couple of decades.  Haven't heard of the ASLAV or any of the later wheeled armour.

PPS I note that quite a few Gunbuggy owners on this forum have commented in this thread, but none are offering up their buggy. 8)

Lot 2536? And that was just the bid price, add the 12.5% buyers premium and it does seem a lot for 52 tons that was missing engine and drivetrain parts and could not move under it's own power.
