Nah this isn't a paedo thread [sorry to disappoint].

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-14001368

I realise that £60 must have been a lot of money back then, but I still applaud the man who sold it.

Quote by BBC again
A Bugatti racing car bought for £60 in 1950 has been sold at auction for £430,000.

The 1924 type 35 Bugatti was found by Jack Perkins, from Rugby, Warwickshire, at a Nottinghamshire aerodrome and restored to racing condition.

The car raced at Indianapolis 500 in 1936 and the American National Championship races in 1938.

The vintage car was sold at Bonhams' annual auction at Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex.

Engineer Mr Perkins, who died in 1992, continued to race the single-seat car until June 1988 when he was 78.

Not every BBC article needs a thread. It's vintage, of course it has a higher value, this is nothing special.

Apparently you've never heard of "classic cars" or how much they're worth.

He's too busy with sexual abuse articles to think of cars.

we have a thread for cars, not every article you read is threadworthy. If I followed your threadmaking habits there would have been 5 new Brad Richards threads every day for the last 3 weeks.

But he died in '92, so it's pretty obvious that he didn't sell it.

Exactly, Woffelz can't even make a good thread when it is actually about child sex abuse never-mind a normal thread!

And he died, so you know he wasn't THAT brilliant.

That's awful! I can't even fathom why someone would jeopardize the integrity of the vehicle like that! There's no way it'll sell above retail, now!

Its fine though, was a great first bond experience with my dad.
