What was the "Important information" that they withheld ? That they had no money ? Reminds me of Carlisle's potential buyer some years back who arrived in a beat up Cortina and didn't have the price of a full tank of petrol ….mind you; we had Spencer Threwup

One of the richest people I ever knew used to drive around in a banged up old Mondeo during the week but had a garage full of supercars that he would drive at weekends, he dressed scruffy as well and very often got taken for a fraud when attending business meetings. Never could get my head round why he did that because it never seemed to give him any advantages

The advantages probably included helping him feel relaxed and not feeling the pressure to have to conform. If he was a non conformist type ... his behaviour would conform to that type. I knew the late John George Baillie-Hamilton, 13th Earl of Haddington. He'd roll up with a roll up ciggie dropping ash on a well worn, scruffy jumper with the odd hole in it. Oddly enough, he also drove a mondeo. He was def a nonconformist type and revelled in that. He really enjoyed being like a mr nobody of the streets.
