Tribute cars pull solid money

Today's Lloyds classic car auction in Queensland saw an HDT VK Group A Blue Meanie (lot 44) pull the top price. It whipped past reserve with several bidders competing for the prize, and sold for $150,000.

Tribute cars were the ones to watch at this auction, with XW and XY GT replicas (lots 30 and 27) setting the benchmark at $73,000 and $75,000 respectively, while a South African-sourced example (lot 23) fetched $64,500.

One of the lots worth watching was an XE Falcon built up as a replica of a Dick Johnson Bathurst car, which fetched $70,000.

Meanwhile a modern Falcon Cobra (lot 28) - a 2008 model with less than 30km on it - found a new owner at $72,500.

One of the value buys was a one-owner 1979 VB Commodore (lot 32), running a 202 six with manual, in what looked like good original condition for $5500.

Bidding on a very good HSV Monaro GTO (lot 35) seemed soft, with negotiations continuing at $34,500.

Meanwhile a very tidy SL/R5000 (lot 42) pulled a top bid of $90,000.

The pick for Mopar fans was the E48 Charger in original condition, complete with the 265 six with triple Webers. In need of a little freshen-up, but generally looking solid, it pulled a top bid of $47,500.
