    This is the third time in a little over a year and a half that this piece of shit sold for over $200.
    Am I missing something here....is the PC board made of solid gold or what?

    This Palomar 80 is a rare amp????? The bidding on this DX killing amp is up to $70????? Looks like this Ebayer has found out how shill bidding can double the price of an item up for auction.

    If you go by Bird watts.....the 250 might be worth $80.....Dosy watts maybe $125. Apparently the aging process makes it more valuable, since it was an amp built in the early to mid 1980s. Only $228.05 shipped to the "buyer"....for less than that you can buy an X Force TNT 250 brand new shipped to your house.
    This amp will be up for auction again in 6 months.
    Thank goodness the dollar a Dosy watt theory doesn't apply to 8 pill comp amps!

    If you don't know why this amp is worth $200+ then you must not have read the description:

    <proof> 'i know a lot of power comes out of these units only because , sometimes he would put a floecent tube up to the truck antenna and key up , and it would light up !!!'

    An amp that powerful must be well worth the money... :rolleyes:
