If you are on the look out for a vintage car for not a lot of cash, make a note of Tuesday 22nd July, which is when the Classics from BCA car auctions take place at Blackbushe in Surrey.
There’s just about everything on sale, from vintage vehicles of the 20s and 30s through to more practical classic from the 50s to the 90s, including MGs, Triumph Stags, Jaguars, a Lotus, an original Mini and just about anything else you can think of.
But we love the quirky – like this 1982 SEAB Flipper II microcar. Out of France, the car has barely been driven, but offers economy on the open road from its 49cc two-stroke engine and practicality too with two doors, opening rear window and a luggage compartment. If you want it, it’s expected to go for between £1,250 and £1,750.
