#1 Stoneleigh 2018

Post by stevenm » Sun Mar 18, 2018 7:45 pm

Well despite the weather's best efforts to stop me going to Stoneleigh for the very first time , the snow really hit us hard again down south, I managed to arrive when the doors opened at 10am.
I joined the queue of eager buyers waiting to find that elusive part and a bargain to boot. The weather might have had an impact in the amount of people attending but there were still lots of people browsing all of the many stalls that were displaying their wares to us eager buyers.
Some of the prices being asked were eye watering to say the very least !!!! I was hoping to find an original Vintage Jaguar key ring and although the one that I went specifically to look at was, in my opinion over priced along with many other items on that particular stall but I did come away with a couple of very nice vintage jaguar key rings that were very reasonably priced from another sellers stall so I was very happy with those. I also bought an early 60s e type sales brochure signed by the great man himself, Norman Dewis, that will add a nice touch to my 62 roadster literature pack.
Even though I did not buy as much as i would have liked I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and met some very interesting and knowledgeable people. A great day out despite the weather.
Did anyone else go and if so did you spot any bargains?

The red e type was previously owned by myself and it was the guy I sold it to who was selling it there at Stoneleigh this weekend. I spoke to the owner today and he told me that he sold it for £74,000.
The strange thing is that it went through Barons auction on the 27th of February this year and failed to reach its reserve price which was a lot lower than it sold for today!!! 🤥 I suppose it depends on who is there on the day looking for a particular car.

I must admit I came away slightly disappointed. Picked up my preordered dash panels from Hutsons but that was all. I noticed that some of the regulars were not pricing goods which always makes me wary.
I intended to pick up much more but it just didn’t happen. I guess internet buying has reached our marketplace, much easier to sit in the warm, order stuff and have it delivered rather than brave the absolute freezing cold.
The entrance fee seems to have settled at a tenner, I wonder how much they charge to exhibit. Possibly that also affects some sellers.

Did catch up with a couple of gents though. Let’s face it I wouldn’t have spent much time in the garage today anyway.
Series 1 2+2 now sold
Series 1.5 OTS in opalescent maroon with beige interior now back home from California and in my garage !
