Twenty thousand when new or even three thousand in my opinion from what I can see,
Question is is he blowing up the realistic selling price in his head or is this reasonable.
I feel for the old guy don't get me wrong but sometimes over the years perhaps a lifetime things can get a bit muddled.
Our recollection as to what we paid and what it's worth today becomes sorely inflated, and I think that's whats happened here.
I just don't think he's a crook just lost the plot a bit over the years see what you think.
Maybe after all he is correct and I am being unfair but I don't see that kind of money here.Alistair
