Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

At first thought, "£10k for an old moped" does sound a lot, but then, when its thought about a bit more, the money fetched by all sorts of collectibles seems even more mental.
For me, collectable art, particularly something like Van Gogh etc (Da Vinci`s engineering drawings completely different matter) has absolutely neither appeal or use to me, and, in my mind has little significant historical value. At least the "old moped" can be used, has nostalgia and a history of the masses about it. And they look fantastic and sound fantastic.
