£1.50 and a pile of (useless) classic Peugeot switches?
I think there's a point where the 'half' rule turns to 'double what it was worth last year', normally when there's very few of them left, and people suddenly decide their car's not a 'banger' but a 'classic', not on merit but purely because of rarity. I recently saw someone trying to sell a Rover 75 for £3000 as a 'rare and valuable classic', which doesn't seem a terribly good description of a poorly put-together Honda. Or the Skoda 130 Rapid, an unreliable deathtrap assembled out of cardboard boxes and baked bean cans, is now apparently worth £12000, which is considerably more than the skip on wheels was worth when it was new, even allowing for inflation!
Of course there are exceptions - for years the 916 GTV was poorly thought of and the prices plummeted as a result, but finally it's getting the recognition it deserves for it's fine looks, handling, interior and noises.
