‘Cemetery Junction’ and ‘Ashes to Ashes’ could inspire a revival of
the cars from the Seventies and Eighties according to BCA
The motors of the Seventies and Eighties are set to star on the big and small
screen in the next few weeks. The latest film from Ricky Gervais and Stephen
Merchant, ‘Cemetery Junction’, due for release on 14th April, will see some of
the Seventies classics taking centre stage. And the new – and last – series of
‘Ashes to Ashes’ will bring back memories of the cars of the Eighties including,

vehicle auction specialist, British Car Auctions (BCA) thinks the appearance of

that interest collectors.”
Recent BCA sales have seen a wide choice of Seventies classics sold,
including a 1979 Triumph Dolomite 1.9 HL, a 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III Coupe,
a 1979-registered MGB-GT and a 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 6.7 litre saloon.
Naylor added “The best place to search is on the BCA website, where the
online stock locator will quickly identify any older, quirkier cars that BCA has
consigned for sale.”
“Enthusiasts looking for something to satisfy their nostalgia should also
take a look at our Showroom facility on the BCA website” he continued. “The BCA
Showroom regularly features the more specialist, classic and prestige vehicles
ahead of them being sold, so it’s a really good place to visit on a regular

How Does It Work?
Simple - just click the links on the left and/or right

that this site will show you cheap cars near to where you live.
A lot of cars don't achieve their full potential price on the internet, due to poor listings (or even poorly timed listings!), so take a few moments to read any that are of interest and the chances are that you'll grab a real bargain.
The car scrappage scheme is great....if you happen to be in the £7,000 and
upwards market when looking to buy a car! However, if you're like me and drive

on the clock), then this site may help.
Have a look what's currently available. You may just find that perfect cheap car.
