Re: Posting this for a chuckle, unless you're grumpy, in which case you may hate it

You can’t even make an offer!

$90.00 shipping?

As they say, “you can always come down in price, but it’s hard to go up”.

Enjoy.

Re: Will there be any model As left?

Yes, the good ones will still be with us.

At some point even the best of antiques gets to the point that it’s time has come.

USS Constitution is less than 10 percent original.

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?
