    I dunno, my gut says the asking price might be a bit high

    Based on the top, looks like it needs to be inflated.

    Prices are all over the map. $10K no longer high at all.

    Ah! That makes sense. I was trying to see if it was ME... missing a typo. [it did occur to me that it might have read $100K too - still, I'd like to know if someone would buy mine for that ]

    I figured if that one was worth $100K then surely mines is worth like $40k....and I'd be ok with that!

    Reminds me of that $1,000,000 "big" Austin Healey (the one in Texas) with all the gold where there would be chrome. Despite its provenance, I doubt that will every sell.
