Grab your chequebook... Silverstone Auctions is to host the fantastic Race Retro and Classic Car Sale. Now, this will be no ordinary motor sale. There will be no sign of a knackered Vauxhall Corsa, and not a hint of a rusting Escort. In fact, the sale room will be overflowing with some of the most fun-focussed cars on the planet. And guess what? Some of them are surprisingly affordable. Fifteen cars will be sold either without reserves, or with estimates of less than £10,000. There will be a Porsche 924 Turbo, for example, and a 1967 Morris Mini mk1. Both are finished with vibrant red paint and look super-stylish.Moving to more expensive vehicles we find a 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 3-litre saloon. This is finished with elegant blue paintwork, and estimated at £65,000 to £85,000. Or, how about the 1953 Chevrolet GMC Sidestep Pick-up? 'Not for the shy and retiring' is how this machine is described, yet its auction estimate is a modest £14,000 to £17,000. That is new Ford Focus territory. Other highlights include the: 1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series II Saloon, the 1958 Mercedes-Benz 190SL, the in-your-face 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint, and the 1967 Volkswagen SO42 Westfalia Camper. What a choice. Who could possibly pick a favourite?
