I've watched this radio as the seller is nearby.  It would take more time to strip off the paint than the set is worth.  Second, $30 to ship?  That'd make up for the $.99 that is all he'd get for it.

I have that set -- mine is a nice example -- and it's a stellar
performer. Nice radio.

Of course, mine doesn't come with scotches.

Somewhere in my radio collecting I grabbed hold of one. It is a very nice sounding and performing radio I agree. It's tempting for me to grab this one.  I'm wondering if a bit of TLC and paint remover would restore it to being a beauty again.

I'm sorry - I don't get it. First you say it's not worth 99 cents,
then you admit you have one AND it's a good performer AND it could be
a beauty again AND you're tempted to buy this one too...  You seem so
conflicted. Are you going to buy it or not? Because it's been re-
listed and is now just over $2...

The auction ended with no bidders.  I may be conflicted, but you are......nevermind.  I should have known better than to post in this loser news group about anything. LOL

> My POINT is, look at it.  It's been trashed on the outside with a real retarded looking pain job, labels, and who knows what's been done to the inside.  Looks like a pattern of destruction.  In it's prime it is a good performing radio, but from the looks of it......capice?  Sorry for the confusion.  I think I'll go back to ARF where I won't offend the sleeping here.

Please don't use "retarded" unless you are talking about ignition-like
subjects. These boards have a higher than average percentage of "dweebs"
lurking and the "R" word is very offensive to some of us.

This is a "loser news group"?

And you read it and post here?

Ergo YOU must also be a...

Welcome home!

P.S.

I see that you are still taking heavy doses of your grumpy pills.  :-(

I'm what?

I'm entitled to post my opinion?

I'm entitled to point out when I see things that don't make sense?

I'm probably entitled to call people names and go run off to another
forum when someone disagrees with me or points out my foibles, but I
don't. I've been*** out here over 15 years and I think I'll stick
around.

The majority of AA5 sets on ebay end up with no bidders.
