    I think the Ferrari is.a nominee for the flipper of the year award, or perhaps lifetime achievement in flipping. No offense, I'm in awe but it's just not thrifted.

    Sorry spoo, but i will challenge you on that, was it thrifted? or consignment prices? My skyline was "Thrifted" at a mere $2,800. (She had rust,now fixed) and is fast as a mouse trap. looks nice too! so nominating myself. [​IMG]
    for this.....
    [​IMG]

    i have spent $4000 since this pic. (mostly thrifted) so it's still a hot whip for the money.
    (i wanted to nominate a super rare backpack, but this will have to do.[​IMG])

    But the story is awesome spoo, congrats on your dreams achieved. you should get an award. i mean it. for a lifetime achievement in thrifting. like catside said.

    Hmmm, I found a Leica this year too, but can't find the post since the stupid search tool seems to be broken.

    Scratch that....it was not at a thrift....

    Yeah, I'll see if I can find it. I hope they fix this site soon.

    EDIT: Never mind, it was last fall that I found it. Where did this year go???!!
