Title: End of an Era
Post by: dto on March 17, 2007, 05:47:36 AM
I never thought I'd see the day:

Note that even if a buyer is found, the business must vacate its iconic building, a scaled down replica of Los Angeles Union Station. :(

I would buy it, but it has one fatal flaw - it is in California, with out question the last place in this country I would live.

And, the guys terms of sale are pretty demanding. $500,000.00, no problem, but the $100,000.00 non refundable deposit? I'd have to be pretty far into a deal before I let go of a penny.

Great hobby shops come and go, its the nature of things, some will replace him.
