Now Is the Time to go Shopping
Looking at the Hearld it seems that this is a good time to shopping for that new Aston...
LUXURY cars like Aston Martins, Land Rovers, and Jaguars are being seized for resale by Dublin's bailiffs -- as their previously wealthy owners have plummeted into crippling debt.
But the high-end cars are being sold for a mere fraction of their original cost as the bailiffs find it difficult to shift them.
Dublin county sheriff John Fitzpatrick told the Herald: "The cars we've been getting are all higher range.
"They're Jaguars, Mercedes, BMWs, but they've dropped enormously in value and they're very hard to sell.
"We sold an Aston Martin last October, just over a year ago.
"When that car was bought new, I understand it was bought for €250,000 but we sold it for €39,000
