I upset (big-time) a 20V owner a few months back - we were discussing an ad
in the UK newsletter that was asking 20K GBP for a 20V. My opinion was (and
still is) that a 20V isn't worth that sort of money, his reply was that it
was the rarety value and that he had paid 19K GBP for his 20V only a year
earlier, to which I replied "Bollocks" and proceeded to inform the guy just
how many bricks short of a full load I considered him to be, pointing out
the Performance car article that had a 20V for sale at around 8K GBP.
