This afternoon, I will be taking a look at the motoring news and the astonishing story that a 1959 unrestored Mini sold for £40.000 at Bonhams recently! The car was owned by a regular Gateway guest Richard Bremner auto journalist, who writes for Autocar magazine. Richard and two others bought the car 3 years ago for £11000, so not a bad result considering nothing was done to the car in that time and it remained totally original including the rust.
This poses the question, why pay £40.000 for an old Mini in pretty grim condition?
Has the world gone mad?

I will also be looking at local stories from around the Gateway broadcast area, interlaced with travel and weather reports and of course great music to ease you into the weekend.
