Officially certified by Hobbico? come on, that is just too much.

Well in any case, there might be a sucker born somewhere that might go for it.

If someone buys it there not too smart and if someone don't then it proves the seller not to be too smart. Who said it "there is a born everyday" or was that "sucker"

I remember a few years ago, when sellers would advertise a box for sale. Only the box. They even stated in the description (not the title though), that it was just the empty box, nothing else. But some bidders would go wild and bid it up to some amazingly incredible amount too. I bet they were surprised like all heck when they got it delivered.

Funny when you look at the only other item sold by the seller is a lamp, very beautiful lamp apparently though.




Absolutely beautiful lamp! Thank you so much!

That was great Reginald. Did anyone buy the million dollar tether car?
Since it was in 2007 it was just before the big economy crash in 2008. So someone rich might have gone for it then.

Do'nt know but I doubt it, even in those days, buyers are not tht stupid. It was so outrageous that I printed it out for keeps.
