    That advert seems reasonable considering its historical value, and that it was attached to something that may have been manufactured in Australia.

    Using that as a bench mark, I have a Holden HJ series owners manual, in almost as new condition, 104 pages of complex technical information on how to operate this famous vintage vehicle, and I think it should be worth at least $350,000.00. (The vehicle does not come attached to the manual.)

    This is only available through this forum for a limited period. Serious offers only, don’t waste my, and your time, telling me it is worthless.

    I was having a cynical old fart/millennial cross-moment.
    Old fart because I chucked all my cassettes when I sold my VN or VT ?
    A millennial moment because they would not recognise or understand a cassette.

    Who else here has very valuable, rare, prehistoric junk that is priceless. (slow day for old farts)

    I have a collection of cassettes of rare bootleg pressings of unreleased Bob Dylan from Germany that I would love to still be able to listen to. :-(

    I thought WTF when I checked the link from VS-Lover, but wait there's more a cassette deck for $500 :eek::eek::eek::eek:. I could have had one from a VS bench wagon for 10 bucks not all that long ago. But I just wanted the bracket as it's bench seat specific, sedan brackets don't really work in bench dash unfortunately. Think I paid $5 for the bracket and the bracket would be worth 50x what a cassette deck is worth. Some things in this world will never increase in value, just ask all those who kept their Polaroid cameras, thinking if it becomes old enough surely it will have value....

    Be good to list one at 99c on free sellers Sunday, then send him the link...

    Not really worth posting in the technical section?

    Wonder how much someone would pay for the plastic bag the carpet came in ??

    As far as the original radio cassette units is concerned, see how much they are now asking for VL units such as the following Berlina unit,

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/COMMODO...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    As far as woteva suggested someone else a while ago pointed me into looking at VN to VS units on eBay and my jaw dropped as I can go any day to U-Pull-it and grab a standard unit from a vehicle that no one wants and at the same time write down the VIN number of the car it came out of and then flick it to my mate who can then give me the PIN code to the radio, providing it's still the original unit.
