British Car Auctions has announced the rebranding of its Classic and Historic Automobile Division to reflect the changing attitudes and interest in classic cars.
‘Classics from BCA’ has been created to encompass the full spectrum of classic cars across the last century, providing avid collectors and virgin enthusiasts alike with access to iconic vehicles to fulfil their dreams.
‘Today’s classic cars are as likely to be from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and even 90s as from the early 20th century,’ said Robin Lawton, Head of Classics at BCA.
‘While we continue to serve the very healthy market for Vintage and Veteran cars, we are seeing a much broader range of cars at our auctions which are reflected in our new brand.’
‘The demand for cars from the 1970s and 80s has developed as new collectors and enthusiasts enter the market. And it’s not just the supercars or prestige vehicles from those years.
‘There is a genuine and growing interest in the defining cars from those decades such as the Mini, Ford Cortina, Rover SDI and Vauxhall Viva that were the family cars of their day.’
The Classics from BCA website – www.bca-classics.co.uk – features a forum for visitors to share information and knowledge on caring for their own classic car as well as a blog regularly updated by Robin Lawton, where enthusiasts can ask questions and get advice.
It also includes a free online valuation service. Owners can submit details of their classic car via the website to receive an estimated value of their pride and joy.
