Yeah....that's what I meant by the "still......" as in still a good deal.
(dependent on condition).

Just wanted to make some people aware of the adjusted dollar value on past goods. Speaking of which, here is a site that has a calculator that adjusts for inflation; Inflation calculator

And another site that has lots of interesting graphs and comparisons of goods/services/millionaires past and present, etc.

Here

Sorry if a little OT here...

The pieces of gear on the very top of the racks are operating at 600+ degrees F, giving them their unique sound.

Wait, I'll get that t-shirt yet.......I just noticed the pic under your name and High End Moderator( the white VU meter) is the same pic on your sweatshirt.

Is that the original Double Trouble Productions logo??
