Re: Hershey chatter

Sounds like the golf cart type vehicles are going to cause more than their share of trouble.

Re: Model A prices...going which way?

Kinda sorta the reality of auctions is that price is only good at that time and place and situation, so the numbers get skewed. They aren't good indicators of value.(The way that Bob set his research...
