Euros top Shannons Sydney auction
This HQ Monaro went for $91,000

Tonight's Shannons Sydney auction showed there were no post federal election blues among bidders, with the vast majority of lots sold on the night, generally for good money.

Top money for local cars was $105k for a VK HDT Commodore, while an HQ Monaro scored $91k.

Euro cars dominated the bidding. A tidy Mercedes-Benz 190SL convertible top-scored at $172k. One of the more interesting buys was a Ferrari 400i coupe, which fetched $76k.

The motorcycle fleet was particularly strong, thanks in part to a collection of collectible Triumph twins. A first-model Bonneville attracted a strong field of bidders and finished up at $44k.
