I suppose many people who are reading this article have said exactly the same thing.
My brother and I not only passed down jumpers and boots but on occasions our cars. Steve is a bit older than me and as such was driving before me, when he traded up I too traded up to his old motor until I was in a position to go it alone.

If it were possible to have kept them all and tried to put a value on them at today’s prices I’m sure we would get a shock, probably a much higher return than any savings account!

I just don’t let it get to me and spoil the day!
