    You could swap on a graflok back without much trouble. Might not be worth it but it's an easy swap.

    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    My Olympus Trip in near mint condition for 25 squids-what a bargain!

    The 32 1/2" Dagor I missed, back in the late 1980s. It went for w few hundred bucks, over the years I've managed to convince myself it was an inaccurate listing

    If we are talking the 1980's how about the cars I passed on like the 1965 Mustang for $500.00 that needed a front bumper, the 1969 383 Roadrunner for $900.00 that the used car salesman wouldn't let me drive because I was 19 and the 1967 Camaro for $2,000.00 with the rebuilt 327 and new paint.

    If I had those cars today I could buy any lens I wanted!

    Here's a deal I didn't pass up in '87 - a 1969 383 Roadrunner, the guy built a 440 with the intent to run it at the strip - 11.5;1 pistons, aluminum rods, a forged "Hank the Crank" crankshaft, lightened flywheel, Sig Erson cam, a sixpack, cool can, 8 quart pan, Lakewood scattershield, hemi 4 speed, Dana 60 rear axle. The car came with the original 383 block and original rear axle, for $1300. It had sat for almost 10 years, but had no rust and started as easily as an engine like that can be expected to. It idled at about 12-1300 rpm and was undriveable on the steet. I sold it for $3500 in '91 and bought a '64 XLCH Sportster, one of 1940 made that year - except for the gas, oil, tires and sparkplugs it was factory original.

    I sold my Leica IIIC and get 400 dollars at 1994. I went to Ara Guler - magnum photographer- and bought two prints for 200 dollars.
    Same prints is listed 6500 dollars each at art price com ! Invest in art and it goes crazy.

    Wow! What a deal and what a car!

    I did own a 1973 Dodge Charger Rally Sport with 340 Magnum, bubble hood with factory hood pins, 3 speed automatic with slap stick. Being at the end of the muscle car era, they didn't make very many of them.

    You see what those old Mopars are going for at auction today? It's wild!

    Yeah, you could shift at 6500rpm. Or pass someone at 100mph, slam it from 3rd to 4th, and go by with the wheels smoking. Drive it in traffic, and you'd be grinding it over to the curb in 1st gear on the starter to let it cool so you could change plugs. As W.O. Bentley once said, "there's no replacement for displacement".
    I still have enough bits and pieces to put together a 413. It would be nice to have in say a '66 2 door Coronet or Belvedere to show the kiddies a thing or two about tourque.
