HISTORICS @ BROOKLANDS - The Autumn Auction Brooklands Museum Saturday 23rd September 2017 - 10am


Edward Bridger-Stille 
I am delighted to announce that our new catalogue is now out. I really think it is the best yet; a fabulous selection of motorcars and motorcycles, beautifully laid out and all very competitively priced.

Historics had somewhat of a landmark at our last sale in July as it was our thirtieth-anniversary auction. It was a great day and set the template for our future which has seen Historics mature and prosper in an ever-bigger pool of classic car auction houses. We’ve seen big changes over the seven years that have passed, good quality cars are still immensely buoyant and, bias admitted, I can’t imagine that collectors of stamps, wine and arguably even property get the same buzz as those who opt to dig into their piggy bank, or indeed vault, to fund a classic car.
But amidst the rustling of paperwork recently in the corridors of power, various ill-conceived missives have been handed down. These often stand little chance of passing through parliament but, for those of us with our eye on a little further into the future, an occasional smile can be afforded. The classic car movement numbers over 1,039,950 registered historic vehicles and 34,900 people directly employed. The important bit is that £5.5 billion is spent annually on historic vehicle-related activities. Votes are the driving force for all in Westminster and with 8.2m people directly interested in historic vehicles in Britain, these numbers are ignored with peril.

The difference is, between government and us, is that we speak to each other. We touch these cars, since changes in collectability and understand the feedback directly from owners and enthusiasts. Whilst I’m not sure I would invest in a 15-year-old diesel estate right now given the current plans to ban fossil-fuelled cars by Wednesday, I think our passion is reasonably safe for now and I think we are lucky to have such a motivated politician in charge of the All Party Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group in the shape of Sir Greg Knight.

We look forward to seeing you all next week and drive carefully,
