    Ooo all the colored machines...

    I sure do not remember them in the 70's, by early 70's , it seem's they all took a 500$ bill to buy and where what I call the white box machines..

    the colors remind me of the ramblers , gremlin and pacer's. I swear some day I will paint one to look like a big bug

    but it won't be this one

    John, I see that guy posting a lot. Dunno how much selling he does, but all of his prices are super high...does have some nice machines tho.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    What a concept! Someone actually cleaned up a machine before posting it for an exaggerated price!

    I looked at the website - I think it's the guarantee - I think I like the guy.

    some people are more comfortable with a guarantee - would you sell one for what you are willing to give with a life time guarantee???

    The Lifetime guarantee is only as good as the seller's lifetime. It's a good gimmick though, we all know that Vintage machines outlive their owners.

    Yup. And the odds of someone taking up a 'guarantee' offer on a machine, that is shipped to them from a faceless seller via paypal....well, those odds are much, much better than the lottery or Vegas;>
