So it probably can be had for the right price!

A little research has shown that this beast may not be all that big -
perhaps like a fat 6 foot rack. If so, a trailer could handle it.

Those Convex machines are very nice looking, by the way - black and
yellow. And even if it is a bit old, it could still beat the hell out of
PeeCee in the performance department.

In any case, someone please grab it.
