Only if it's a V8 though...and first thing that would happen if that the exhaust would get fiddled with, because I know from prior experience that it can then then make a noise something akin to a 1960s Ferrari...
The listing is here and its for a 3.5V8 EFi Auto 1987 with 87,165 on the clock to be auctioned 19th March 2015 at Athelhampton House, near Dorchester

We will have to wait for a couple of weeks to see how much it goes for.

This "classic" is up for auction tomorrow at Pavillion Gardens Buxton, so shouldn't be too long before the sale results are posted up. In at an estimate of £3,000 to "£4,000.

Anyone care to put a guess down before the sale. Token prize, and bragging rights on offer :!:

Image

It has got grey "velour" seats by the looks of it.

Its got to be less than estimate surely, but there may be someone out there who wants it. I'll risk £1800 as my guess.

Full details here

Nice and Grey interior :!:

Still time to have a guess at what it might fetch tomorrow. Even time to register on-line and bid on it.

This would be an appropriate token prize for the closest guess

Just based on what I've seen some similar stuff change hands for I'd say 2-2500. Possibly a bit more as it's a nice colour and does look absolutely mint. Plus it hasn't just been dragged out of a garage from the looks of the pile of MOTs etc (as is the problem I've had with my Skoda...

No results from the "Maestro" auction posted up yet but within the "results" information from H&H some interesting cars crop up.

From 2010, £3,960 bought this, particularly nice if you like sebring red,

Ford Capri 2000 Ghia 1976

.... and £10,000 would have bought this 1984 Aston Martin Lagonda and you would have had £100 left over :!:
Finished in Metallic Blue with Cream leather upholstery, this particular example is one of the first series cars. As well as a `space age' digital LED dashboard and touch-pad controls, its specification includes automatic transmission and alloy wheels. Forming part of a private Aston Martin and Lagonda collection, `SCM 903' has lain dormant for some time and would therefore benefit from a degree of recommissioning prior to being put back on the road. The vendor informs us that its engine "runs smoothly" but flags up the TV/radio assembly fitted to the rear compartment as "needing attention".

And getting it home after the touch sensitive controls failed would use up that £100, and then some!

Looks like the results have been posted up for the H&H auction at Pavillion Gardens, 25th February 2015

I clearly dont quite have my finger on the pulse of the classic car market yet because the Maestro achieved well in excess of my £1,800 guess.

....and I have come second in a 2-horse race, so well done Zel :!:

From the Auction results, how about this for a little formula
1 x Maestro =1 x Daimler + 1 x Jaguar + 1 Porsche +£60
Daimler 3.6 1988-variant of the XJ40 (£1,360)

Image

Jaguar sovereign 4.0 (£1,175)

Image

Porsche 924 (£765)

Image

and Of course the golden rule
One Corsair= exactly 2 Maestros :!:
