    Question Is this a good deal???

    http://roanoke.craigslist.org/atq/3283641733.html

    I found this online, and was wondering if it would be worth the 2-2.5 hour drive.
    Any info would be awesome!

    It depends on how badly you want a red eye and the real condition of it and the cabinet. I'd ask for better pictures myself.

    I'd say it looks like a good deal but the cabinet is shot and needs lots of tlc. I second the motion for more pics!

    since it is so far away, asking for more pictures is entirely reasonable. Odd that they didn't get closer to begin with!

    Got on your pony and go grab this one ------- $25? There are many of them out there but few in that price range ..........

    Go get it. I've seen cabinets that were a pile of sticks resurrected. This appears to all there. The decals look good.

    I would be all over that. The cabinet can be easily refinished and it looks like all the irons are intact and in good shape. The center drawer likely just needs a bracket to hold that one side.

    I would sooooo be on the way. For $25 you can't go wrong. Even if it turns out to be a pile of junk, you can part it out and get your money back.

    Go for it! Only $25-? Oh yeah! Looks like all is there, and just needs some tinkering and elbow grease. OK-I may be wrong here, may take more! Anyways, let us know how it turns out!

    I'd go for it -- doesn't look that bad. It's a great price for the whole deal and you can always make a shopping trip out of it

    I'm going to get it thursday, i'd be going tomorrow if I didn't have to work.
    But the money from work is paying for it, so I guess.

    I'm glad you are going to get it. She's a beautiful machine, even tho the cabinet needs work. You can still enjoy her while you check around for someone who can restore the cabinet.

    I would buy it fast!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    My hubby will probably restore the cabinet, he likes to work with wood.
    He wants to restore the two that i already have.

    You might as well get it or it will be all over your mind with buyer's regret, or non-buyers regret that is.

    Ok so I have the distance wrong, I dont know how I did it but its 4 hours away not 2.
    It should fit in my car, but is it still worth it?
    Also do the irons come off of the table?
