Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Vintage Microcars to be auctioned by BONHAMS during the big Monterey events weekend  August 12-13 2010:
click pics to go to detailed listings for cars,
note that ALL sales under $100,000 will have a 15-17% Buyer’s Premium added!
also- note that the Fiat Giardiniera was previously sold by Bonhams in CT just 2 months ago and the same photos and description are used in this auction, but the “estimate” is almost DOUBLE what the actual sale price was 2 months ago? What is up with that? Did the original sale fall through? or maybe the seller had a matching set of identical cars….

all prices shown are HAMMER PRICE and do not include the Buyer’s Premium

This 8 minute video is a rambling tour (narrated in German) of the Jesada Technik Museum in Thailand.
Previously covered as the Microcar Museum in Thailand, this video shows a bit more coverage of vast numbers of Microcars stored away in all sorts of places in all sorts of conditions from buckets of rust to restored, or at least presentable examples.
