Eugene Faust said he was thinking of trading his somewhat scruffy XK120
for his son's rather nice MG 1100 implying that they're of equal value.
Since I know that no MG 1100 is worth more than $200, I offered to buy
the XK120 for that amount.  But I didn't get a reply, probably because
DamitDick outbid me by $50.  Now we'll probably have a bidding war and
I'll miss out.  From now on I'll be more discreet.

You should send that buyer to the guy selling the $30,000 MGB.  Just 
kidding.  I know it was miles and not dollars.
