One thing this business has taught me is how you cannot judge a book by its cover. The Motor Trader who turns up in a Rolls Royce wearing an Armani suit and sporting a Rolex has to be viewed with caution. The Rolls is probably on finance the suit came from Thailand and the watch really belongs to the insurance company who have probably paid out on it twice. The best example however has to be one of the wealthiest and most successful traders I have ever had the privilege of working with affectionately known as "Pat the Rat " from South London who sadly passed away some years ago. Pat was one of the scruffiest people I have ever known, some said he would have to go into hospital to have his trousers removed but he was the only man I knew who could successfully buy seven and sell seven cars on the same day in the same auction. He had skinny little legs to which his trousers stuck to and turned up at the auction one day sporting a brand new pair of shoes which stuck out like a sore thumb, quite apart from being very shiny they were two sizes too big. I had to ask where he bought them to which he replied in his local store, I commented on the fact that they were too big for him to which he replied " I know, so I have stuffed newspaper down the front of them but they were cheap"..........
