Beaters are cheap. But good ones are definitely climbing in price. I bought mine (for my oldest daughter, not for me) in 2002 for $3200. A similar example now would be much more.

They are surely worth keeping clean.

This thread reminds me of Rule #2 at my work "Don't argue with an idiot!".

Partially as a result of this, there exists today a tremendous scarcity of unmolested T1s in the world.

I was reminded of this by seeing a really nice, clean Ghia cabrio at lunch today, and thinking to myself "Wow, now there's a rare sight!"

Having finally read this thread, it was more entertaining than I thought it would be.

The OP validates my signature.
