You correctly note that there is an error but I am wondering what happened to
your faith in that "economic theory" you were ranting about last week. Short
As I see it, Mark made a straightforward simple mistake. He forgot to put the
decimal in - those of use who paid attention in first grade will recognize the
dot at the end of "$18500." as a period. Please, let's not start confusing
grammar with financial symbols. Of course once corrected, the price correctly
reads as $185.00 and as Nory points out, for an upstate New Yorker, this is a
small fortune (or was that the annual per capita income in the area?).
I don't know ... personally I think it's a lot of money just to own something
you can whine about!!!

Hey Doug, special intervention must be used here...inflation works against
us now. Ok the Offical MG Pricers (Dr.Doug and I) have concluded that you
added one to many "0"s to your price. Please correct your pricing. ;-)
All MGA Twin Cams in Concours condition are now only worth $2000.
Please contact the OMGD before selling your car, MG Pricing Consulting
available on an affordable hourly basis.
