Bonhams / Oxford

On the outskirts of Oxford, towards Kiddlington, is an unremarkable garage, next to an AlfaRomeo main dealer. All is not what it seems however, as this is one of only 2 Bonhams auction houses outside of London. On Sunday the 7th was a sale of collectible classic cars, automobilia, and collectible automotive art.

One of the favourites for me was this Lister Jaguar 7litre with epic forged wheels…IMG_4363

A classic i’d forgotten about but one that’s off the ‘hotness’ scale is the Fiat Dino..a Ferrari-engined bargain at £21K
