JS,

Very nice! The V42 still eludes my collection! I'm really going to have to win the lottery to ever get one. I doubt I'll find one in a dumpster, or have one given to me. Did yoy see the one "Tigerfan" got at a flea market up top in the "Latest Finds " section? SKIP

Beautiful V-42s guys. Maybe I'll talk to Frank and see if he'll come down on his V-42 that he has for sale for $12,000. Ya think he'll take $500? That's all I can spare right now.
