Dirty cars - what collectors want

Some car collectors avoid that new car shine and go for something a bit grungier during auctions - like this Lancia.

A barn find... without going in a barn

Many car collectors dream of an elusive "barn find." That's when a car is discovered after having been largely forgotten for decades in a garage or, sometimes literally, in a barn.

But it takes luck and, very often, years of searching. With a car like this, collectors can just buy themselves their very own "barn find" without having to actually find it, said Hammers.

This Lancia was parked in 1968 with 60,000 miles on it and then kept in storage ever since, according to Gooding. It was only rediscovered this year.
