Is that you
Your eyes slowly fading?
Is that you
Your mind full of tears?
Is that you
Searching for a good time?
Is that you
Waitin' for all these years?

Well, I hope you're feeling better.

What i liked most about eBay in 1999 - 2002 was being camped on there trying to buy some rare mustangs that would occasionally come up. it was fron-tear times then. Im not sure how the mathematics of it work, but that 66 Mustang I bought then for just over $1000 is worth about $2000 now, just like i think with inflation a thousand bucks then is worth two thousand now. if you bought no shares in world com.

and we get to the end of the game in 2016 and reverb reveals that there is an enormous glut of used 60's Mustangs still out there. It really makes me wonder what homes in the US must have looked like in the 60's and 70's, they must have been littered with unplayed Fenders under beds and in attics that people bought, strummed once and said nah, this aint for me.

Maybe I should have bough peak beanie babies. Stratocrazy has like NINE 1954 stratocasters, that Songbirds museum has entire wings of "rare" guitars. It must have been a sight to see these things get pumped out back in the day.

I could have bought a Fender CBS blue/purpleish compstang in great condition for $650 in 2001 and I passed cause I thought it was too much to pay for a Mustang. I was also in Carmine's in NY around 2000 when this kid from Japan who was doing a semester study abroad was trying to get $350 bucks for an Antigua late 70's Mustang. There was no interest from Rick. I saw him outside and asked if I could see it and he said "I would take $250", I passed.

This. I paid $375 for a '78 Stang in 2004 or so.
