Bawtry the other side of worksop? Are they still going - I thought they closed at the same time as Chesterfield Car Auctions as they were run by the same people.

The days of that being a shit paradise are overI think. They’re in Rother Ham now under the pretentious ‘Motor Auction Group’ name even tho there’s only one. The stuff I bought there 1998-2004.

MASTER RACE MOTORS.

 

1989 F  730i. Prestigious.

1994 M 318Ti - Track whore

2008 Golf GTI 3dr 6spd #VAGWANKER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Money talks, but it don't sing and dance and it don't walk. And long as I can have you here with me, I'd much rather be, the Reverend Bluejeans, babe

Funnily enough there's a car auction just round the corner from me in... Wakefield!

Tbh I would guess it's all relatively new stuff as you don't see anything interesting on the transports.

That's about the only interesting thing in there.

 

Looking at the entire catalogue, it consists almost entirely of cast-offs from Arnold Clark, thecarpeople, various car financers, and a Harley-Davidson dealership.

I gave up in the end - you couldn't buy anything from him. Used to do Bawtreh as well. I bet Bawtry locals are glad that's all ended. Used to be wall to wall gypos and rigger booted Worksop drones, various shit cars moored up by the Esso station, the owners leaning against the wall like pimps.

You do know that that’s where car auction stock comes from?

Main dealer cast offs are 10000000x better buys than private entries or small trader entries anyway - the latter two are definitely fucked as opposed to probably.

Unfortunately I would imagine that the scrappy gets the real shite from a lot of main dealers now with auction fees ever increasing - you do see some odd stuff sometimes though

Used to regularly see cars knocked down as sold at Chesterfield then they would go through the ring again towards the end of the sale...

That described Bawtry auctions to a T though! Did you ever go to the general sale (household goods and tat) there?

Used to be a car auction in Birmingham that had loads of shit going through, might have been off Evesham Road. There was always a police Hiab crew about outside lifting illegally parked vehicles to keep the road clear.

 Sounds like Birmingham Car Auctions in Moseley Road.

Auction fodder has changed in terms of quality* since the days of knackered Sierras and Granadas, but probably not in condition or age. I believe that Lord Sterling of this parish also has knowledge of them :)

Most of Cannock’s stuff will be from main dealers too, they’re probably just cheaper on fees so you get the scrap fodder / prime autoshite
