What a bargain!

Sir: I am much obliged to Gerald Dorey of Oxford (letter, 4 March) for being willing to buy my car for pounds 1,500 on the understanding that, if I give him the pounds 1,500 back, he will provide my family and me with the use of a good-quality car - in perpetuity. Would he kindly stop sheltering behind the relative anonymity of the letters page and publish his address, so that I can take him up on his kind offer?

(Perhaps he has not noticed that the transaction would make sense to him only if the car were worth a great deal more than pounds 1,500. But if that's the case, I might be better advised to keep it.)
