Yep you nailed it. The ARF was Unobtanium when I was in High School 1988-1992! LOL It is still Unobtanium! LOL If I ever get a hold of one at a price I can afford you can bet your rear I will restore it and talk on it every weekend! This was pre-internet so guys would tell tales on the radio about how they once had one etc.....In fact it makes SSB Motorola CB's like as common as Cobra 29's.....LOL I love how people that own these will talk bad about them often calling them junk. That said they always want top dollar for them right after bad mouthing them! LOL Their is one on ebay right now for $2500. That is the reason why it is always old farts with pacemakers that own them!!! You almost never see them or hear them on air because they are museum fodder. The same type of idiot that owns a Corvette but never drives it just keeps it in the garage or living room to look at. The problem is these guys do not die fast enough. So by the time they do die the really good jems they have collected have rotted away from the inside out. It does not matter if it is a plane, rifle, radio, car etc......They get too old and crippled to use their toys but they will not sell them of passing them on to someone that will put them to use and repair them. They just sit and rot. By the time they do die you can no longer get parts to repair them. Nothing pisses me off more than instruments, airplanes, rifles, electronics be hoarded by someone who can no longer use them but would rather sit around and watch them rot away than pass them on. I know a Doctor that has prob. 20 V tail Bonaza aircraft. they are sitting outside rotting away to nothing because he is not healthy enough to maintain flight physical to legal use his pilots certificate. By the time he is dead though and his family can sell them off they will not even be worthwhile as parts planes they will only be worth their scrap metal value. I wish people like that would take up a hobby or hoarding things like hookers or cocaine instead of objects with a shelf life! I would rather give an object away to someone that will use it and maintain it than let an item go on used and rot away.
