"Gobs and Gobs" of Microcars to Cross the Auction Block - October 18, 2008 (Biardsleap, Cranwell, Lincolnshire, UK)

OK...It's time to pack your bags and take a trip to London.
I know -- the exchange rate is at an all-time low, and the economy seems to be on the brink of collapse -- but when was the last time you saw an auction with 80 microcars crossing the block? (And lots of parts -- boxes and boxes of parts -- enough to keep that microcar on the road for years to come.)
The Bubblecar Museum is holding their End of Season Car and Spares Auction. And based on the amount of stuff listed on the Golding Young auction site, you have to wonder what will be left in the museum when the October 18th sale is over. (Viewing is from 10-4 on October 17th, and from 9-11 on the 18th.)
Even if you can't make it to the sale, you've got to take a look at the catalog of lots to be sold. Some of the stuff looks a little -- how do we say this delicately -- rough, but it is the real deal. Break open the piggy bank, stop watching the news, and go get some microcars.
Despite our enthusiasm, the Microcar & Minicar Club is not associated with this sale.

Thanks to Hemmings Auto Blog for finding this event.
