LOL! i purchased one of these when Iw aas working at a hobby shop at a clearance price well under $75 with my discount. It then went into long term storage and in my many myriad moves from storage into the basement and then back to storage i pulled it out and tossed it on Ebay. Sold on Ebay for over $300. Not a bad return on my investment. Glad you found one at a price you could live with.

I hear Aristo made a Budweiser reefer with "Flavor" misspelled. Perhaps I'll find one to go with my SOUTMERN PACIFIC reefer ;)

"M&M Diner" is it a real diner or simply the name of your railway? If its the real deal, where in Florida?

I paid $100.00 I wouldn't do $300.00 but you did get a nice return on your investment.

Nice Find But aren't your concerend that you maybe developing a Budwieser fetish?



Naw!! I'm more of a coffee drinker these days but I always loved the billboard cars and also drank my share of the suds, All the beer cars I bought 20 years ago I was afraid they would dissapear and become scarce but I still see them and they are at around the same prices now as back than.Now I finally can run and enjoy them instead of storing them in the closet.
