My buddy John calls me up and says do you want to go to the swap meet? It's already 11 I say and anything good will be gone but I'll go anyway as I am still on a Mopar A body hunt. By the time he gets to my house and I begin roaming the meet it's already almost 1 PM. Not much chance of finding anything slot related. I walk over to a table and this is sitting on top.

First thing comes to mind is he's asking $500 for the Chappy that's why it's still here. Are you selling it all as a lot I ask, trying to feel him out. Sure, how about $30 for the whole box. I think he was expecting me to chew him to $25 but I didn't have the heart. Anyway, I never had one of these so maybe it was destiny.

Be who you are and say what you want, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

It's even better when one doesn't deserve it!  :crazy: (general consideration, nothing to do with you of course).

Jean-Michel, not sure where you are going with that "doesn't deserve" it. :) Haven't I always been nice to you? :D

It was just humor. :pardon: A difficult exercise when not in your native language. Indeed when you get something that you deserve, this is a pleasant thing. Now, one can imagine that it is far better when you don't deserve it... It the like difference between gaining money at work and winning at the lottery... 
 
By the way, you may resell the genuine steering wheel of the 2E, still on the chrome tree, for the price of the lot! You would then have had the 2E for nothing!  :lol:
