It used to be the case the people went to car auctions in order to find themselves a road worthy vehicle at an affordable price. Since the nineteen eighties, however, this has changed. In a decade when most ordinary people were struggling to pay their bills, as they are today, the richest in society didn’t know what to spend their money on. Buying classic, usually much older cars for a huge amount of money has become a means whereby the better off can advertise their status.
