A BARGAIN FOR $12k
I would say GLWS good luck with the sale, but no luck is needed for this one. I doubt it will be for sale very long.
Methinks a higher price could've been asked... and recieved.
But there's also something to be said for a quick sale.

Re: Here's a unique item.

Shouldn't a Member's Only Jacket be tagged Member's Only? Maybe they mean the style. I remember buying a Members Only jacket when they first came out in the late 70's, lol :mrgreen: . It's a nice jacket- wonder what it'll go for? At least it's got the correct logos that really matter. IMO, the open...

Check this out!

I already have a Motorsport jacket and this is too small for me, but it'll fit someone in here.
If this were an XL, I'd be a bidder.

Sooner or later XR guys end up adding a Scorpio to the stable. Totally normal (to us, at least).
I wanted to buy the Bonhams car, but the wife shot me down! :banghead
Oh well... I guess I'll just have to buy something that costs 10X as much instead...

I got a Merkur gift from Up north.

A Scorpio

Or is it a curse?
It may just take more goodies to make the whole thing into one.

Re: Apparently Im stupid.

I don't learn my lessons. I'm on my third XR4ti and now have decided I should totally get a Scorpio. I found an 89. It doesn't run and the interior is a mess. What's the worst that could happen? You can't get it to run and the interior stays a mess?? Hopefully it costs you very, very little to get ...

Re: Merkur goodies for Christmas?

So some of my Xmas is gonna be late, but I always tell the wife to not buy me stuff for birthday or Xmas, knowing I'm gonna spend on my XR... I do the same thing... put everything into this time of year and go hunting for it myself. Last year I got a flag pole for Christmas. The year before I got o...

This one's getting close.
Having this back on the road would be a heck of a Christmas/New Years gift.
Here's to completing the project with no issues! :cheers
