Gumtree: “Ferrari Arcade Cockpit” < 10km away

So I looked, how could I not?
It was too much $$ for a toy, but I checked back occasionally to see if it was still there .. it never changed price or anything but the idea of owning it grew on me and eventually I decided it was time to make a low offer.
Cool, owner didn’t slam the phone down in offence, so I was shoe-in 🙂
I went and had a look, tried not to sound too excited and settled on a price we were happy with. Doesn’t get any easier than that!
The kids were very excited, only one of them understood its purpose or potential.
