Thanks, I will keep that in mind. 

Troy, did you sell it to a buddy or something?  Why did you sell it for what you paid?

I sold it to a coworker.

I have a reputation for my grills apparently. This summer I've had 5 different people come to me requesting my help in getting them a grill.

3 down. 2 more to go.

I get that same feeling.  I wonder if Weber HQ even has all of em?  I want that spider web glazed one.  I'd be content in my quest if I found that one.

I saw that grill listed one time a couple years on some Clist ad somewhere not local to me.  I emailed about it but never got a response back.

A flat top 26"er in red, or brown.

A Steak ring,

A pre 1981 22.5 Redhead (preferred) and/or Chocolate and/or early 70s avacado. (metal bowl handles)

A blue Performer

I guess I mean the old style 26"ers (70s-90s). They're neat looking, though I would snag a modern one in bright red if they made one. Or even a 60's round top one.

Just out of curiosity, what keeps you from cooking on it?  :)

I often forget that Weber started with round top lids on the 26", hence the Westerner from 1958 had the rounded lid top. I tend to think of the more prominent flat top lids of the 1970s and 80s when i think "old school" . But to re emphasize, I'd take a "hunter's pink" or a chocolate in either style. Though I'm not sure if chocolate 26"ers existed in the round top era?? I could be wrong.
