Not surprising, I'm no fan of these guys in general, tv shows and huge resources strip mining the country, world , etc.

Look at the muscle car sink hole, $100 of 1000's for ones now that only cost a few $1000 when new.

We need to be glad they haven't targeted our stuff yet, if you're on their radar you may never find a good deal ever again.
