Do you live in Chevy Chase? Was your down payment $500? I think it’s safe to say that’s off by a factor of around 200. Either you find this extremely amusing or slightly depressing. That amount of money in 1911 is probably worth $20,000 today. That also probably makes you a little depressed. Chevy Chase ain’t cheap.
