Vehicle auction draws a crowd
Bargain hunters turned up in their dozens at the Bridgetown Port for its latest vehicle auction yesterday.
People braved an overcast sky and wet conditions, then endured a blazing sun to get a deal on the vehicles in various states of disrepair.
However, a few of the participants left disappointed with the number of cars available – around ten – as well as with some of the prices with the most expensive vehicle, a Ford Edge, going for $45 000.
Despite this, auctioneer Cardinal Burnett said the event “went well”.
Reverend Errington Massiah was among the crowd. He said he was looking for a car but could not afford the asking prices. Even so, he was undaunted.
“This is my first car auction but it will not be my last, although I hope the next one is more affordable,” he said. (CA)
