Just a quick post for now.............

Driving through town today I made a snap decision to go see the local comedian in his second hand shop - I say comedian as his prices are hilarious!! smiley_lollegs.gifsmiley_lollegs.gifsmiley_lollegs.gif Sharp VZ-2000's for £500 a piece & he has a few albeit with all sliders missing! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Anyway I digress - Now I have always got on well with him despite not having been in for a good 2 years, he was his usual self, jovial & friendly, this was just as well as I spotted this about to be cleaned biggrin.gif

Couldn't believe my eyes - a deal was struck in seconds & it came home with me!

A lot to do, mostly cleaning & belts/tyres etc but she works.........

Big post to follow after restore........

But for now: Viola bigthumbsup.gifbigthumbsup.gif

That is a glorious find and would be some of our best wild scores ever. Nice!

I would have had the big one like Fred Sanford would say Elizabeth I'm coming to join you honey with a boombox in my hands.
That's a mighty fine score .

My favorite part to look at is those massive looking speakers. It's the huge dust cap in the center that makes them look mean. They don't need a chrome piece to say "hey look at me" they're just huge and you can't miss them :-)
