Yeah, and a real coincidence as I was driving to Montreal tomorrow to buy one for $225 plus tax, the box would fit in the 450 with the passenger seat down so at least it wouldn't have cost $60 in gas! :lol:

Yeah, I saw that one too but this $319 model from PA is the one similar to the one from CTC http://www.princessa...Lift-Shop-Crane, the rear wheels are the weak point in the $155 model, they are mounted on flat stock welded to the tube....instead of mounted directly to longer/wider tubes at the rear. As well the rams are different one is 5 ton the other is 8 ton.

If that is so I'll betcha a whole nickle the $319 model was tagged by the staff at the cheaper($155) price by accident, I've seen some "deals" at PA due to that, both PA models are rated at 2 ton it's just one weighs 30 lbs less than the other not to mention the lower power ram, :D

@  FlossyTheSmart : (20 August 2014 - 06:48 PM) hopefulyl you won't find any smart parts on the tree of shame :)
@  turbomar : (20 August 2014 - 06:47 PM) I'm going in a couple weeks with the Crossfire guys. Have a good time!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (20 August 2014 - 06:45 PM) yep
@  turbomar : (20 August 2014 - 06:44 PM) Going to the tail of the Dragon?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (20 August 2014 - 06:42 PM) Driving to North Carolina. Left Kanata at 8:30, gotg into hotel in Roanoke, Virginia around 10... Should have been a lot faster...
@  turbomar : (20 August 2014 - 06:34 PM) Wher u been!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (20 August 2014 - 06:32 PM) Yay 13.5 hours of driving today...
@  RHWeiner : (20 August 2014 - 01:02 PM) Looking for basic seat covers that won't cost me an arm/leg? Canadian tire?
@  smart65 : (20 August 2014 - 12:09 PM) Disregard last shout. It does highlight, as I wanted.
@  smart65 : (20 August 2014 - 11:20 AM) When a search is done, it would be helpful if the search argument were highlighted in the displayed results.
@  spider : (20 August 2014 - 05:41 AM) Hi guys, just wodering where you get all your custom parts for your smart car like exhaust, cold air intake, spacers for wheels, rims and tires. I've seen them on ebay, but was wondering if there are cheaper places.
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:14 PM) I PROMISE THAT I WILL NEVER POST A TITLE ALL IN CAPS!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:13 PM) XYZ jokingly de-capitalized of course :)
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:13 PM) More annoying than bad. Helps prevent things post titles like "HELP ME I DON'T KNOW HOW TO XYZ" when it doesn't need to be in caps, and could just be "Help, I don't know how to Xyz"
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:11 PM) Why are all caps titles bad?
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:04 PM) Thanks. On numerous occasions in the past I tried editing my post to correct the capitalization problem without success.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:03 PM) Turned it off. If we start getting all-caps titles (That aren't intended to be), I'll turn it back on though.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:02 PM) It's an "shouting" preventer. I can turn it on and off. Maybe we can try it off for a while
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 August 2014 - 07:01 PM) Sort of. That same issue was there before too though.
@  smartdriver : (18 August 2014 - 07:00 PM) For example SAM comes out as Sam
