„The car is yellow in color. It has a V8 and AT transmission and console shift. There are 90,125 miles on the odometer. It ran when parked. Does not run at this time. Been inside storage. It has a hatchback. The interior is black buckets. Aftermarket radio. This would be a coll car for restore. This would be a good addition to your collection.“

Why bother to write a description at all?

I think we can safely assume they are liquidators, not car enthusiasts.

Strange that 2 Belgium motor show cars both ended up Stateside.

There is a lot of really interesting stuff at that auction. Anyone want a Cosworth DFV, a hydroplane or a Citroen SM? How about a Marcos or a TVR?

Here we go again. Another load of cellar dwellers/ tarps. The club should start a fund for collecting and crushing these heaps of severely neglected rust buckets. I suppose some dreamer will buy one of them. Get rid of these dream machines and eventually Jensen will be a vastly improved asset. Let's raise our sights........just a little. 8)
