I long suspected you're a queen
Actually that must mean depreciation was even harsher in those days. I've told this story before: 1986 or so husband and I have $26,000 in our hot little hands to settle on a block of land in Brisbane; the weekend before the settlement we see a 308 in the window of the local 'exotic' dealer (the one near the Valley pool for locals) for EXACTLY $26k... very fretful weekend deciding but we did the 'sensible' thing... And the budget for the house to be built on said land was $60k
In 1988 I paid $72,000 for a glass 308 GTB.
I guess this conversation is also a measure of how brutal inflation was in that period as well.
Tell 'em that today....they'd never believe you...
That's what I paid in 2012
I paid nearly the same, 72.5K in 1997.
Lol, crazy eh.
I knocked one back for $58K in 86 - had a sport pack on it, too, but I just couldn't afford it. And I really wanted a 246, which was half the money.

Thanks a lot Horse
You still owe me a beer!
Sorry.... I don't drink..... I'll buy you a milkshake!
who said you had to drink one?
Milkshake plus 8 years interest - 2 milkshakes at least!
I have to drink one because I know you'd hate to drink alone.
Chocolate thick shake please.
