[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Christmas is upon us once more and we all know the best part of it is the present to yourself. So where better to be than the Barons Annual Christmas Classic Auction at Sandown.

Gordon and Craig from Bridge Classic Cars were there to enjoy the day and to present 5 of the current collection available for sale.

Early on Monday 11th December, Mark from Russell’s Transport arrived with his impressive Mercedes car transporter to help us get the cars safely to site. I would say safe and DRY but that part didn’t really go to plan.

As you can see, weather was definitively not our side this morning but we got through it, the cars were loaded safely (as was the cleaning equipment).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As always, Barons Classic Car Auctioneers put on a great day with a fantastic collection of classics on display. A few of the scheduled cars didn’t make it due to the weather but never-the-less, it was a huge success.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”16709,16710,16711,16712,16713,16714,16715,16716,16717,16718,16719,16720,16721,16723,16724,16725,16726,16727,16728,16729,16730,16731,16732,16733,16734,16735,16736,16737,16738,16739,16740″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Channel 4 were also there on the day filming for their new show Inside Bentley: A Great British Motor Car and as we had our 1949 Bentley on show we were interviewed for the show.
