HOW TO SPEND YOUR CASH

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The num­bers game will tell you the av­er­age house cost £51,709 and the av­er­age car would put you back £8690 in 1989, but that’s bal­anced by the fact that av­er­age an­nual earn­ings were just over £10k. You could have treated your­self to a Mo­torola 9800X mo­bile phone, state of the art tech­nol­ogy for a mere £1765. A ticket to watch a Manch­ester United game was just £3.50, far re­moved from the £50-odd it costs foot­ball fans now.
