  1. In all the excitement, I kinda lost track myself. Couple of dozen, but generally one less than I “need” at any given time.
  2. Same seller is also selling an Ovation for $59,999... Buy the pair!
  3. My youngest and I were at our local place on Feb 26th, and it was business as usual - no crowds, no shortages. Weird. Stay safe!
  4. We have a small local chain (3 stores) that actually have a bigger selection than either of the Cabella’s I’ve been to. When this started heating up, they were having to Close down early every day because they were experiencing 5 HOUR waits for their customers to purchase anything that required a background check. They ended up shutting down for the safety of their staff, but they are allowing pick ups of ammo bought on line, by appointment. Not that it matters - they are sold out of most stuff...
  5. I don’t know much about either of their catalogues, but I’d put BFS “Girl All The Bad Guys Want” right up there close to “Stacy’s Mom” on my all-time power pop favorites chart...
  6. I remember the good old days of the late 90s when it seemed you could score Standards and Standard Customs on eBay for $800 to $1400 every day. Now, you seldom see them for sale, unless they’re $3500 to $8000 on Reverb - and the ones that are on Reverb have been there quite a while. I think when one comes up for $2000 to $3000 it gets grabbed right away, like you said. Like I said, the market has dried up, though - people who have them must be hanging on to them. Hang in there - hopefully you’ll get lucky soon!
  7. Awesome - Hope he always remembers that day, and it inspires him to great things!
  8. And just like that, the HFC causes me to spend more $$ - LOL! Seriously, thanks for the heads-up!
  9. Congratulations! Hope you were able to persuade the seller to add a decimal point into that price!
  10. If you haven’t already spent all your money on crack... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223644392992
  11. Anyone can have an opinion about anything, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the people who seem to take pleasure in gleefully bashing anyone like Roth who isn’t performing at the same level he was back in the day. It sometimes hints of jealousy; at the end of the day, he’s still David Lee fucking Roth. PS - I saw Van Halen 5 times between 1980 and 1984, and I thought they were great every time. YMMV, obviously.
  12. The internet is hilarious. Yeah, his voice may not be there anymore, and he doesn’t have the look and the moves he had in the 80s, but by all means, if you have the wealth or the fame, or the record sales he has, go ahead and pile on.
  13. That’s a very valid concern about the entire classic car (and guitar) market.
  14. Yes and no. If this were a regular 1968 Mustang in the condition it’s in, then it would be worth more restored. But this car’s value is derived from its historical significance; replace too much of the car, and you risk losing the original essence (although, granted, it has 50 years of “patina” since the movie...). It would be like replacing the chassis and doing a “resto-mod” on one of the original Batmobiles; if that’s what you’re after, just go buy a new replica. That said, the other Bullitt that’s out there? If it’s been in a junkyard all these years, probably best to go ahead and restore it. Just my .02. It will be interesting to see what the new owner decides.
