    I wonder if everyone who might have bid on J-10 was at the RM auction where 1016 was being sold (it went for $9,795,000).

    Ex-Strathaven for Sale?

    Re: The top 30 children's books you'll never see If you like those book titles, take a look at "Uncle Shelby's ABZs book" written by Shel Silverstein. I used to buy it for friends that have new born children. When I first saw the book, it didn't have any stickers on the cover. Then...
