And then, what if WE also had our local investigative TV reporters watching
and reporting on the whole thing? Uhh... wait a minute... that might bring
too much attention to eBay...

How about starting with a real, honest-to-God RCA 807? Imagine... $500 for
an 807... HEY... I LIKE THIS! There's the name. There's the old appearance.
Mount it on a polished walnet base, hang a tiny lamp shade on it, and
awwwwaaaaayyy we GOES! Meet you guys in Rio next year?! Better yet, let's
go to Tokyo and find us some 75S3Cs!!

"Daddy, how did we become so rich?"

"I sold 807 lamps to collectors, son."

Bah, humbug... Steve Ko0U/1
