    My GF got me an Avatar Vintage 412 cab for V day! Probably the most thoughtful gift I've ever gotten from a girlfriend before. :AOK

    2 weeks ago I was all set to buy the cab from TheRover, hes an awesome dude and lives real close so I was gonna pick it up! I had saved for awhile to be able to afford it and set a time we were gonna meet up. My girlfriend happened to be in town and overheard our phone conversations.

    That same day my car broke down and I had to spend $800 to fix it.:( It was fixed in a few hours and I decided to take my GF out to show her some places in Miami. Got back to the car and someone had smashed my back window and stole my GPS.:worried Insurance wouldn't cover any of it.

    Financially devastated, I called Paul and told him I could no longer afford the cab and that I was sorry.:cry:

    The week passed and I went up to visit my GF who said she had a gift for me. I followed a bunch of clues around her house which led to the garage (full of furniture b/c her neighbors were moving and had stuff stashed there). I find this giant thing with screws in it and a bow on top! Turned it around and it was the cab!!:)

    She had found it on craigslist while she was back home, driven several hours to go get and surprised me.

    Seriously great end to what started as a ****** week!

    Yup she hunted me down from the Craigslist Ad. Drove 3 hours to come pick it up. I had it plastic wrapped and ready to go. Put it in the car for her and off she went. Man what a nice gal-lucky you. Enjoy the Cab Bro!!!
