1. images are not super sized when I click.

2. stuff in quotes means it's not real.

3. copy paste job was a fail. so many sentences ending in

I like the 7400cc injectors. Empty the tank in seconds!

7400 * 4 = 29,600, or over 7.8 gallons. That's one hell of a fuel delivery system.

I think FailFlora needs to pick up this car just for its fuel system.

Yep, I've had it nearly my entire life and I've always just held onto it cause I always wanted to buy batteries for it and try to play it again. It's even gone to college with me; it's just always been in my desk drawer. When geoff mentioned not throwing away wires I remember I had it in there and just on a whim today decided to go see what sort of value they bring thinking $50 or so because it's retro. I wasn't expecting it to bring in that sort of cash regradless of how rare it is...plus note; it's in surprising good shape.

I'm not sure what I'll do with it. My life wouldn't change if I do or not, and it's literally been stuffed in a desk drawer for at least 20 years. But I might actually miss it if I sell it. I'll probably wait till I need to buy something in that dollar range and sell it to pay for it. Maybe a set of snow tires for my next daily

I used to get into fights with my bro to play the game, and I'm surprised that of the condition considering I have a bad track record with keeping things in good shape...especially as a bratty kid.

Yeah I hear you, but even with the sentimental value I'd take $1000 ANY DAY. lol

Hell, you price it high and just let it sit for a few months and maybe you'll luck out like that one guy and get closer to $2k. Simple amazing.

Just like you 90% of people (myself included) would assume it was nothing of significant value. These are exactly the kind of items I look for. I'm quite jelly, however, now I know to keep my eyes peeled for one in my searches.

EDIT: I just went into our newly opened harbor freight for the first time. Walked out with a tubing flare kit, syphon kit, brake bleeder kit, fine 10" file and a pair of needle nose pliers for $30.58. Now lets see if they can handle the abuse I'm about to put them through. lol

I love that show. BTW that same statue in miniture-form was on an epsiode of Cajun Pawn Stars. He bought it for a few bucks cause he thought it was cute, sold it to the pawn shop for $800.

Brake bleeder, if it's the cheap one, is crap. Haven't tried the better one. Pliers will hold up as well as any asian made junk (hard to find anything but), and the flare kit works okay. Do not over torque it, or the frame will crack.

WTF is it so hard to find decent tools nowdays?

I went from 160lbs to 176lbs in a month. Also in that month I ate chipotle everyday. I have gained maybe 1% more body fat. I also hit the gym errryday like a baus. I have come to the conclusion, chipotle injects HGH in their food.

chipotle's the last place to inject anything into their food. hormones or otherwise.

---- You.

Getting from 152 to 157 has taken about a year.

I only go 3-4 times per week though.

I'm going to Chipotle.
