My Garage Finds
« on: January 26, 2018, 05:45:38 PM »
4Admin: might consider adding "my garage" to this "finds" category!   ;)

Found this HUGE box of WE 202/102 pile-ups and parts. (photo attached)  EVERYTHING I HAVE is for sale, so I will start (at some time) sorting if anyone is interested.

Also, with the recent talk of 5302's, I found this box (photo attached) today too.

Oh, and an additional photo attached just to bug Terry Biddlecombe!  ;-)

Been in the market for a 202, Doesnt need to be anything special, building one from crud covered parts makes it special enough. Got my 302 and 5302 that way  :D

Okay, royalty check is in the mail for using YOUR AE2 as my Avatar for quite awhile now! Though...you donít actually have it do you?

Nope; someone "spied it" at a telephone show when I had it on display and offered me $4500 for it, so after I regained my composure, I took the CASH!

Ray...rest assured, I believe I could hear Terry trembling a bit when he typed this line!

His envy is secured! ;)

Sorry Andy!  I didn't even see this request until just now, and then I had to read it twice to determine that it was a question directed at me!  email sent!  ;p)

"Hello, Hello!" is a fine greeting.  My Uncle Dick (dad's older brother) invariably would lift the receiver,  hold it for a few seconds, and then say only "SPEAK!"
