!!!!! ?????

In their day the cars were about £300 and a 7" single was about 50p.  £300 x 33.3 = £ 10,000 a familiar price for bubble    50p x 33.3 =£15.10

Therefore this  record might be expected to be about £10-£20 if the value has gone up similarly to a bubble car, but this is another 10 fold increase, good luck to him !

What to my surprise.
A little Nash Rambler was following me -
About one third my size.

Coincidentally, the full lyrics are on one of my websites:
