My Drive: Under The Hammer

My Drive: Thirty six cars worth more than £6.million, including an Aston Martin DB5 owned by George Harrison, a Cord 810 Phaeton owned by Jimmy Page and Duncan Bannatyyne and a Mercedes Benz 300 SL Roadster stored in an Edinburgh garage for the last 23 years are to go under the hammer in London next week. The cars along with a huge collection of movie posters are to be sold at the COYS True Greats auction, which will be held at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on Wednesday December 7th. “There are some extremely interesting cars on offer which could be the ultimate Christmas present,” said Managing Director of COYS Chris Routledge. He added: “The classic car market is one that is still buoyant and many people are looking at cars as an investment that is also fun. He added:” We are seeing traditional investors moving away from financial markets and looking at investments that are more tangible.”

On Wednesday Model and photographer Patti Boyd, who was married to George Harrison when he owned the DB5 was re-united with the car when it was showcased at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Patti and a host of other celebrity photographers attended a Gala evening at the hotel to raise money for Variety Club the Children’s Charity.
