That would be a great deal.

Especially the fact the phone is worth that much. I heard the Red AE payphones were usually used in nice hotels etc...

No longer for sale.

Looks like Andy had a little overspray when doing that '62 Buick.

Check out the top of the phone and handset.

That's possible but it looks like dust.. Then again the color of the booth is the same..

Red payphone probably worth more than that!

Please include a picture with an auction topic as they will be gone soon!

A closer view of the phone.  I think it's dust.  The booth wall isn't the same color and texture when you look at it close up.  Paint or no paint, I still would have snatched it up for that price.

The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.
