For real man.I guess prices have gone up.
I figure I could just make one or something lol. Need to keep my damn cats outta thereThat missing back door is a big deal. It’s not the end of the world, but it’s not likely that you’ll find another, and it’s even less likely that you’ll find one for less than a couple hundred before shipping from Asia.
I would take $1,400 in cash and wave it in the guys face. Is this guy an op? Ops can never refuse cash in hand. Point out some scuffs, say that you’re concerned that the monitor is on the way out, etc.
But yes, times have changed. The days of getting any candy cab for less than $1k are long gone. The Blast is probably the most common and least expensive one, too.
The black shit isn’t a problem in that it fries/shorts components, etc., but as I understand, it dries hard, like tree sap in Jurassic Park, encasing the components in the black shit like mosquitoes, also from Jurassic Park. Getting the stuff off to get to busted components seems to be a whole other task. Full disclosure that I haven’t worked with said black shit at all, though it is present on both of my Blasts. Maybe somebody with some firsthand knowledge can chime in on this point.
Can I ask what the person is asking for the cab? For whatever it’s worth, I dare say that’s in better physical condition than either of mine.
I subsidized the purchase by selling my Arcade1Up on craigslist to some schlub. Bought it for $300, bought a $50 stool and put a Raspberry Pi I already had in it. Only other thing I bought was the monitor adapter. All in I was probably 375 in. Sold it for $700.
Sold a Phoebe on ebay for $350.
This thing is almost paid for.
Irony is a funny thing lolOohhhh…so there are ways to make the “everyone is an idiot” thing work FOR you as well, interesting.
When my Saturn collection hits $50,000 I’m selling. I can only hold the torch one way or another for so long. I may as well cash out and take that month long Siberian Express vacation I’ve always wanted before I croak.
