One shilling was quite a lot back in 1955 not that Bill would know that being a youngster :lol: , us old guys remember shillings and they could buy a lot.

How many of those tickets survived I wonder anyone else got one.

We found five and thruppence in Donald's overalls pocket, I bet you can translate that into real money, Mr old-timer...

In '67, I was a student and had a Mini-Van. As I recall, that amount would have got me about a gall. and a half of petrol, or nearly 70 miles from the 850cc engine. I could fill the tank for a quid -------------. Oh those marvellous Sixties!!

If folk were happy to pay a shilling in 1955 to see Bluebird how much would they be prepared to pay in 2011?

Wouldn't go that way Ernie-5p in 1955 is now worth the princely sum of £2:49 according to my then and now programme!-probably around £7.50 to £10:00 would be nearer to the true price of a crawl about K7 and a seat in the cockpit I think. :lol:
Pity K7 isn't a two seater-I'd happily pay a couple of hundred quid for a quick 100mph dash down Coniston!

Cheap at twice the price!-cost me nearly that for a trip on the "Sally B" B17! :D
