B-B-B-Bird, bird, bird. Bluebird’s the word.
So, I went up to Christchurch this weekend been to attend a “Hoarder’s Auction” an older Japanese gentleman had spent many years accumulating a large collection of both cars and completely random things that he picked up from other auction houses. So when he passed, his son was so over-whelmed by the task of selling it, that he passed the job on to Christchurch Auctions. (I’ll do another entry on the auction later)
I had initially planned on attending simply due to the presence in the line-up of another S21D-4 Prince Skyline Super, however after I inspected the S21, I soon discovered it was not worth a lot to me. It was in worse shape than mine and only had a few parts that I could use. The bidding soon got above a self-imposed limit and I followed along the auctions, watching many people grab many bargains.
