Jimmy Savile auction – string vests, Shag Wagons and gold up for sale
WHO wants to own item touched by the late Sir Jimmy Savile? His myriad impersonators will surely relish the chance to own his tracksuits, gold jewellery – including a Rolex watch encrusted with diamonds – Rolls Royce Corniche, yellow 1965 Isetta bubble car, teapots and string vests.
The event has been pencilled in for this June, to be staged at Savile’s Hall in Leeds. Proceeds go to charity.
What’s not up for sale are Jimmy’s famous words: “Ow’s about that then, guys ’n’ gals?” Shame that his most famous item should roam free and not be held down as an heirloom or gift to the nation.
Note: The above photo features on the Yorkshire Evening Post’s website. It shows Sir James in full regalia stood before what might be termed a Shag Wagon. Anyone who ever entered the vehicle can speak up now…
