according to the "Inflation Calculator" http://www.westegg.com/inflation/, 9,995 in 1987 money is equivalent to 15,130 in 2000 money. The data used for the calculation is US inflation figures, which differs from UK, but is probably quite similar. So, if you were to sell your car for 1,500 in 2000 money, it would be as if you had sold it for 990 in 1987 money, a loss of 90%!
