When I was about 20 my boyfriend and I wanted to learn to drive and were looking for an inexpensive car to buy.  We saw an advert in the local paper advertising an old post office van (red) which was available.  You had to send in an offer in a sealed envelope and wait to see if you were successful.  We sent in an offer of £40 and waited.  We did not get the van but a few weeks later got ourselves a fairly old car (black) for the same price.
