The Mothership has landed...
« on: April 05, 2014, 12:08:11 PM »
To put all speculation aside, this was secured well before it was put on the trading post. I dealt with a very cordial gentlemen. Thank God he was not a CL Flake and an Honest person. I sometimes sit back and wonder where our hobby is going... We are small awesome forum. I am not sure if I see greed or what to attain a collection? It saddens me on what I see going... I play fair and in my own territory, that is me.

This was an awesome deal, that could have gone south. I don't have deep pockets and work a side job to support my hobby. Majority of my collection has been built on $25 or less. That is where I get my enjoyment. My Guardian Angel Spike was looking over me. It is not a Westerner, but it will fit in just fine. It will need a light cleaning and an upgrade to S/S hardware.

Awesome job Greg, excited for you buddy! You know I feel the same as you do about acquiring grills. Get it cleaned up and make a kick-ass meal on it.
Not everyone deserves to know the real you. Let them criticize who they think you are.

Super sweet score.  I don't really need a RK, but even I couldn't pass one up at that price!  Congratulations!   ;D
