Dear all,
Way back in early 80's I was offered for 10,000 5 cars one Rolls without an engine, 2 1928 American, 2 1930's American -all these in original state. Foolosh, I left them because I had not started collecting . Similarly a Ford A for R.700!!

Arre cy, he said this was in the early 80s! Back then 700/- was a little less than the cost of a 2nd hand scooter, or the average monthly income of a middle-class employee for that time.
