    I chuckle everytime I see gear and speaker pics in the back of pickup trucks. I advise you to take new pics when you go to flip amp.

    Those look like really nice 2A3 tubes, just FYI.

    I also picked up a Sansui 3300, AR8'S, a Luxman R-115, Sherwood 7100a, Pioneer CS-33 speakers, Nova 8b's and more off of Letgo and Offer up.

    This amp is your best pickup by far.

    Wow, the classic "pictures from the pickup bed" montage. Around Missouri, nothing says "this amp is for sale" better than the amp photos from the truck. Clear evidence that the amp will never make it in the house, get detailed, get tested, and lovingly worked on and listened to for a good while in our neck of the woods.

    The first pictures I took of the PPP 2A3 powered Capehart console were sitting in the back of my pickup. :p

    Yea, and it was sold to a guy in Springfield. We all know that was an insurance policy in case it fell on you like the Wicked Witch of the East as you were removing it from the bed. :)

    Are you using D&S to flip gear? I thought Barter Town was the only option here.

    I might have unloaded the CGs on my own, but I got help to get the Capehart down and moved.

    This sort of sux to me. You don't really care about anything other than turning a profit. I'd rather see this gear be bought by somebody who will appreciate it at $75 and keep it themselves instead of somebody who is in it purely for profit.

    I have guys in my city who have nothing better to do than buy good stuff that people sell cheap and try to sell it for 4 times the price the next day.

    The rest of us have jobs we go to and don't have the luxury of surfing the classifieds every 5 mins.

    Again I got shafted last night when a nice amp was for sale less than 4 hours. I contacted the seller and told it just sold. Sure enough up for sale again by some guy I see regularly selling gear and has 30+ ads in the classifieds.

    Sigh......
