Yeah right. And IF radar had rented the VW for the last 15 years to pick up tourists @ Dub airport and bring them down the country to kiss stones or sub-rent it to a nigerian man to pick up ****ed customers out of Dub pubs then radar would be now racing against the lotto lady that does her groceries in a learjet. Pay no attention radar, just sell your VW here in Germany (where am on holidays ) to an Antiquitatenhandler and you will double those 8000. You are the bolloks of the dog.
Just looked at the trades in Dublin. For the first time in weeks there is no large sells holding back the price. It's close to 28 but no defense of it yet. We just might move on slowly here on low volumes.
First of all, after very careful reading, it is not at all clear that the subject of your conversation and subsequent negotiation with the German lady was actually the VW van. I invite an attentive re-read. In any case I hope it was worth £500.
Regarding the van, assuming you could have got say 5% per year over 16 years, you would have had 1091 quid. Assuming 8.000 is what you can really get in as-is condition (you should check with 2CV) and assuming as Mr McClean rightly points out the opportunity cost (or foregone economic rent in this case) of occupying your garage is indeed 9600 quid over 16 years, then you have made a loss of 2691 quid.
If the German lady's services gave you an economic utility of equal or greater value, then you have breakeven. Nostalgia will of course exaggerate the perceived value-added.
Otherwise you have to recoup on BKIR and and sell the van fast.
Radar if you had not bought the van but instead rented out your shed for €50 a month for someone else to store their stuff it would have been a better return. In theory you could have then invested the €635 original capital and the 50 a month and with your great knowledge be even better off now. Just saying..
