“Timed Auction” Of Classic Cars

Classic Car Auctions has been running a “timed auction” of classic cars where interested purchasers are able to view vehicles online and then bid for them on the Internet. The auctioneers make available 10 cars each day for sixteen days. This is the first time the business has done this sort of thing and it is because of the coronavirus.
