Holy Crap may be correct. We are not helping our cause by stating that the
car would be worth only $1500 over here. I think I remember that a 2000TC
sold at auction in the N.E. a year and a half or so ago for right at
$12,000. Let's talk higher numbers. My 69 2000TC FED A/C has over $13000
invested and I'll be horn-swaggled(where did that come from) if I'd let
mine go for such a paltry sum (3750 pounds= approx $7500). Think higher
chaps ! you can always come down but you can't go up! :-)

would it really sell for something close to 3,750 pounds on that side of

business we keep threatening to start. That would be maybe a $1500 car
