I think my first Astro was an 86. Wasn’t paying attention back then. Welcome to the club!

Cool, I LOVE these.

- in the 1st pic, the roll-around stool is closer to the seat
- the red tube is 'Just Slightly' longer in the 2nd photo
- and in the same one, that rag is slightly off-color from the other one
- the guys left sleeve is longer - 1st pic
- the condition of the plastic/vinyl seems better too


Thanks for the mental agility exercise... mark, have you seen these...?

ps: bonus, I like the 1st pic's bucket better !!! zatcount?

I Love Peaches also & Wolverines and Gophers

Welcome to the site Matt! Nice to find them with low miles, will be watching your build.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to ignore & go about your business. See: Dark Tetrad
