Hey, if I could swing a Shelby, I might try that. As for electronics, I find
that patience is its own reward. If I can wait just 6 months, I can save a
BUNCH of money.
Okay, I just lied. When my camera came out, I bought it at "retail". One
month later, it was down $100. One year later, it's half price and its
successor has now been for sale for a couple of months.
Okay, there IS no good time to buy electronics.
But I'm still waiting for that Canon Digital Rebel XT...
