Looks like the football is worth more than the vehicle ...
I would not say that. Old iron is expensive enough to make the car worth more. I recently sold a wreckage of an old car found in a shed as old iron for 250€, and that old car was a 1972 Renault R6, a relative small car and so rusted that it was not restorable...

Better told over a beer.
... as opposed to over a cadaver. :cool:

I am reminded of a story, actually. Many, many years ago, when I was an UG at Johns Hopkins, I worked for the Biology Department (work study) as a general grunt laborer and part-time stockroom attendant. The department was cleaning out a whole bunch of old stuff, some of which I scooped up for my high school (a small private school north of Baltimore of somewhat limited means but a robust educational program). One of the artifacts I picked up for them was a Beauchene Skull*. Since it was rather fragile, it made the ride through town with me, riding proudly in the passenger seat of my (much beloved) 1974 Ford Bronco. The skull and I attracted no mean amount of attention from passers-by as we made our way uptown through Baltimore. :)

Now... if I were a physics professor, this is the kind of homework problem I would give.
I bet Tom Brady could get (away with) the right answer
