Thank you. Someone else who sees it too. There was a Gemini Delta 767 that went for like $1300 a week or two ago. The starting bid was a normal bid. That guy is on Facebook and he said the buyer paid and was happy. I say good for him to get $1300. If you can get it then you can get it! But then I did immediately laugh at everyone who put a buy it now at $1300. I guess not everyone else can see the difference but oh well.
