the hunt, the find, the score!
« on: September 24, 2012, 12:15:03 AM »
once upon a time
when hogsy doing his daily chores (ebay, gumtree aka craigslist oz version owned by ebay)
got his daily call from golly.
the two went on to discuss the produce available
both mentioned a few on gumtree
then golly got real excited and said im on this!!
this being a supposed unused black ots 18.5 with timber handles
advertisement saying asking price very firm,
(2 hour round trip)
when hogsy can finally get a word in he says when are you ringing them?
golly says i already have!!
hogsy says nice one when are ya gettin it?
golly says now
hogsy says what about work
golly says fuck it im going to get it
hogsy says where are you gunna say you got to go
golly says im going to do a quote
hogsy says ahh that old chestnut!!
both laugh
golly then proceeds down the freeway to the big smoke
upon arriving and looking down the driveway of the 1960's californian bungalow lies a single unattached garage, right there in front and centre of an almost empty garage lies this absolute mint condish G code 18.5 ots unused! with those amazing timber handles gleaming right at me, at this point my WKC instincts took over and i got really really excited
as i got closer my sight was blinded by the sunlight hitting the triangle!
or was that when i lifted the lid and saw the grills!
this baby was in new condish
check it for yourself

It looks like it was never used?  Like brand new.  REALLY NICE!  The handles are sweet....

It's only cause I'm green with envy
He also picked up a G code blue OTS this week that is pretty sweet
