Thanks for the suggestion  lol  not quite the same joy as the 100+ track days and the 100,000s miles of corners we use to strafe on Sunday  mornings. Like Bob Seger sang... time to "turn the page".  I did it before moving to Pittsburgh when I use to race catamarans on an Olympic level... and before that I use to compete in Tai kick boxing (called Bondo) ....  I'll find something that will occupy body, mind and soul or at least two of the three!

I'm sure we can pull our resources and make a Segway that "simulates" 100 MPH. Or maybe those surf skateboards, rig it up with 60v batteries! I'm NOT responsible for bugs in the teeth.

I can sit longer than I can stand, if that were your case Jim a racing simulator would fit quite nicely where the bikes were parked.

The ad says Kenwood but I'm pretty sure that's a Pioneer.

Definitely a Pioneer, but not sure of the model

Ad got flagged before I could look it up, going by memory could it be this one?

I sent him my credit card number, and included the shipping, since he promised his guys would deliver it tomorrow.  Funny, he didn't need my address.

If not the 1980, it may have been a 1280

The stacking spindle is worth almost that much.   If that's a model with a sled it's worth almost that much.

Changing out the system for the winter.  Sold my MMGs last night and swapped in the Heresys.  Probably should put a tube amp in place of the Sansui AU9500 currently driving them, I guess.  But after getting it repaired at Galaxie, it seems a shame for it to sit.  It does sound great.

I did spend most of the day listening to the Magnepans. Have to cull the herd of speakers again soon.  Vandersteens, DQ10s and Cantons in the bullpen.....

always a fun process.... Been thinking of finding something else to replace the McIntosh XR1051s in the garage system.  Then I put on a good album, flip them on, turn the volume up and am still pretty happy lol.
