Treasures of the Car Boot Sale

It's been a long day of riffling through other people's rubbish, and all you’ve got to show for it is the 2003 edition of The Guinness Book of Records and The Godfather Part III on VHS.

You're about to pack it in and head home... until you spy this sleek gentleman, his 1995 Ford Escort and its veritable treasure trove of boot-based delights.

At first, you don't quite believe what you're seeing - he's got precious rubies and sapphires, a complete IKEA kitchen set, the two Godfather films you actually want to watch, an original pressing of Trout Mask Replica, bags upon bags of in-date Turkey Twizzlers, all 157 issues of The Unexplained: Mysteries of Mind, Space and Time and even a case of brand new Bosch drill bits.

“Tell you what mate,” says the gentleman with the boot chock-a-block full of treasures, “you buy all those Turkey Twizzlers, and I'll throw in my shirt as well.”

Can't say fairer than that.
