Maybe a Von Dutch Masterpiece?

You "Car Guys" (& Gals)out there will appreciate this!

Some pinstripe artist, after a long day at a car show, anoiting hot rods with his pinstripeing talents....couldn't turn it off!

This don't belong in the "Hideous phone" collection because it's a work of art!

Who knows? Maybe it's even a Von Dutch original!  $$$$$$??

The listing is no longer available, so ebay redirects the link to an auction for an operator's dial.

I don’t like this new “re direct” thing EBAY is doing. I was watching it, so they let me see the original listing.

Someone must have bought it. I like the idea of a professionally pinstriped phone.

Anyone can see the original listing by clicking the small, in blue, word "listing" at the top of the redirected auction, as show in this hyperlinked image from the above post. Yes, I don't like it either. Makes me think I clicked on the wrong link. Add an extra few seconds and an extra click to get to the original listing after it is sold.

Nice, adds 15 horsepower or more, to the phone easily.

The seller must have seen this thread and started believing it WAS a Von Dutch...at least he priced it that way!

The artist did a masterful job....I came close to buying it on the first listing, myself. If it hadn't been a modular set I most likely would have.
