Oh yeah :cool: :cool: :cool:

When I read the title, I already thought you had found a Sharp "Searcher" model and was already like "I gotta go to vienna again" :lol: .
Fleamarkets here only throw off overpriced junk lately - and I though spring was the flea season :-/ .

You seem to have done really well with your finds! :yes: Congrats!

Super Flea heroes :super: :super: :super:

That would be great to hit some fleas with another boombox buddy. I think we would probably have to fight over some :ls-duel: :freddy: :jason: :scream: :catfight: :judge:

Called "Sports" with locks for tape and CD, strap, 4 speakers, bass expander,....

It got lost after a party, here i used it with the big PHILIPS amp : :-/

The searchers have been on tour again today.
Together with friend stefan, who visited me (comes from Nürnberg/Germany).
But the times on flea are getting worse.
Not a single boombox we got... :thumbsdown:

okok, we have seen some interesting ones.
Like a big FISHER, a ELIN mini&slim, some PHILIPS,...
But we passed on them, because we still have them :blush:
And spare place is less.

Daniel got a "boombox" for his party room :-D
Posted Image

not good for walking around :lol:
Posted Image

but we still traded a few boxes
Posted Image

He got the boomcycle, the red party center, the crazy SEIKO and the PHILIPS "gullwing"
Posted Image

I got a red roller2 and the big PHILIPS amp
Also my only highscore from flea:
This long wanted triangle movingsound walky!!! :smooch: :cool:
Posted Image

No really big scores, but big fun :agree:
...in big heat - ~35°C and more today :surf:

The Peugeout of columbo is a 403, not a 304 or 404 .
Peugeot closed its operations in USA in 1988,the last model introduced was the 405 MI 16valve.
