More senseless brutality and cluelessness. She is so proud of it! And at $895 she'll be able to "enjoy" it for years to come. :x :x :x

Rubbish...

If this sells for the $895, it will set a new high for this model Sparton :roll:

One would think with all the effort she put into that project that she would have found some way for the customer to access the contents without having to scrape the cabinet around 180-degrees on the floor!

Right, so say if you had a party, you'd have to open up this little cubbyhole, stick your arm deep down inside and pull out the glasses and spirits. Do you have any idea just how weird that would look in front of your friends and guests?

Call me old school but I prefer my wine cabinets to just only have doors, no cubbyholes.

Call me old school but I just prefer my wine cabinets to have doors that swing open.

And if there was a line for the bathroom you could turn the console/bar onto its back and lift that little thing. Looks like a toilet seat cover?

Very interesting aside to this... I actually sold that woman that exact Sparton. I had it on craigslist for a while and got no bites... It was in really fine shape except for the lower deck area, which had some warping. She paid me and said she was going to repurpose it. Told me the whole story. I had liberated the tubes before the sale... Gave me her card... it is the same radio. Here is what it looked like. What a shame, but it was a large beast and I had to sell it. Noone in the hobby called, she did, she got it.

What a complete and utter WASTE. Its amazing to me how people will take something that has a beautiful, natural aged look then slather it in puke and say they antiqued it or made it look old. Wake up lady. You destroyed it. If I was rich I'd buy it and burn it then send her the video so she knew exactly what I thought of her work.

Damn, was that my outside voice?

quite true... these large sets are hard to move... I was happy to sell it, but It is tough to look at now.... She paid me $180, and that was fair to me...she thinks she will make 600 profit? who knows... weird world.

Doug posted that HE would have cancelled the sale. You did fine. Once her bucks were in your hands, she was free to do whatever she wanted to with it. Given that "re-purposing" is now the rage, her endeavor is hardly unique.

Sorry if It sounded the other way :)

Such a shame. Even if she had to "repurpose" it, what the hell is with the white paint???!!!! That cabinet looked just fine beforehand.

I actually don't hate the color scheme. But what I find especially incongruous is the one wrong knob.

It's a lot like people who "fully restore" a radio, yet still have mismatched knobs on it. It instantly looks totally amateur. For $895, don't you think she could have tracked down a matching knob, before destroying it? :roll:

She must have broken a foot or lost one or something...
