It has been an interesting morning. An old acquaintance called me and I paid him a visit fifteen minutes ago.
This gentleman has been a scholar, school-master, local politician, historian and clergyman in his time.
He has stopped driving and, to my surprise, today he gave me virtually first refusal on his classic 1967 MGB GT motor car.
It is British Racing Green and has chrome features. I was apprised that it has been "round the clock" twice; though it has been well maintained and my chum is the only owner since new.
I asked him how much he wanted for it.
He chuckled and asked me to look it up on the Internet.
How much is it worth? Should I consider purchasing it? Would it be a burden? Would it stay in my garage?
Road Tax is unnecessary because the old jalopy is over thirty years old.
