Very well. Cyclone, here is your showcase.

(Showcase 2003)

Cyclone, this showcase will help you start the new year right! First, how about we treat you and 20 guests to a private New Year's dinner party!

Big City Chefs will cater a four course dinner party for 20 guests where you get to choose the menu and theme!

Next, spend the new year doing work faster and more efficient with this new computer!


Apple's Mac Pro comes with a one terabyte hard drive and 12 gigabytes of RAM. Plus, a 27 inch Apple Thunderbolt display monitor!

And finally, for wherever you want to travel in 2013 and whatever you want to take with you, we'd like you to do it in your new TRUCK!


(Toad Circuit)
It's the 2013 Ford F-150 XL Super Cab! Comes with an eight foot box, a 5L V8 engine, 4x4 drive, electronic 6-speed automatic transmission, and dual portable DVD rear seat screens!

This showcase will get your 2013 started right, if the Price is Right!

I've eaten at a great steakhouse called The Keg.  Two people easily can spend $100 on New York Steak dinners and an appetizer, which is two courses.  I'd say at $70-$90 per person (which for double the courses is a discount), something from $1,470-$1,890 seems right for that.

I've known Apple computers to be $2,000-$3,000; my mother is a teacher, and they use Macs.  Also, I've seen them on the actual show and they surprise me more than a normal PC.

My Dad owns an F150 right now.  Not sure how much they fluctuate, but I know they start something like $23K, and 4x4 as well as the 8 foot box jack up the price a fair bit.  I'm calling it $30K-$32K.

So in total, I'll say $1,700+$2,200+$31,000 (playing it safe)...

Final bid: $35,035.

(I added $135 because I like funny bids.)

For a difference of...



We go to Cyclone. You had a very logical bid of $35,035. Actual retail price...

$41,197

And I think that should do it!

Stats in the morning, I'm tired. This will probably be my last HYO for a while, as I don't plan on getting back in line anytime soon. Hope you guys enjoyed the show, despite the fact I really sucked this time around.

God bless,
RC

Was a little more than I thought; had 88JRFAN taken the advice on a bid given for the Tripcase, that would be the winning bid.  Good guess likewise of the $40K from pathfinder.

I was going to go something like $33-$35K on it (the truck), but didn't want to risk going over.  I have some idea of Ford prices as my father only buys Ford, so I've had exposure to those.  $31,135 (as it ended up) was a safe estimate.  For all I know, it probably was about $34K. :)

In fact, I might have gone for that if the other bid had been taken.  I knew $20K wasn't enough for those trips. :D

Ah, the monitor was separate, and the computer by itself cost more than I thought with the monitor included.

Damn you Apple, you fooled me again.
