This sounds to me like the wife wants him to get rid of some stuff so he put it "up for sale"... :rofl:

Fuzzy picture, doesn't seem like a very professional ad. Could it be the seller forgot the decimal point, and it's $120?

I also wonder if it's really from 1979.

Kijiji is not a "professional" platform, just average people selling their stuff.

But that picture is terrible and there's really no excuse for it these days.
If you're savvy enough to upload it you should be able to do much better than this!

For $120 it would be a good deal methinks. But I doubt that the price is a mistake, it has a comma in it after all.

I think my conclusion is that someone is just having a laugh here!

Yeah, I was comparing it to the semi-pro ads on eBay or Reverb. Just sayin' that it doesn't look like a very careful production.

Could be that Kijiji put the comma in. I think you should offer $100. :)

Much more like it. Looks like it was a typo.
