Yep yep yep... Prayers indeed do come true!:amen::amen::amen:

Couple hours ago I saw that 417bullelk (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/member.php?u=1794) posted that he picked up a cool blue performer for $100. Sooooo.... I went to my local CL and did my almost daily search "weber." Lo and behold.. I could not believe what I found. Someone was selling a lime green performer for only....gasp.... $45. I saw that she posted it like 5 hours earlier, so surely I thought it was gone.. and was actually bummed that I missed it. BUT.. I sent an email anyway. She responded back within 2 minutes and said it was still available. Told her I was ready to leave the house within a minute. Packed my tool set, the GF, and away we went.

It was in near MINT condition! No carbon build up, no soot, nothing. She was pleasant as pie, and said she used it only twice. Said the fire went out both times before her burgers were done. Soooo.... she wanted to get an LP instead. Who was I to ask questions! She also told me that another woman came to look at it earlier, but was upset because it was not LP. I paid her the $45, and started to disassemble right away before any mind changes could be had. She also had the weber cover, and 4 bottles of propane. With tax, cover and propane... this cost her(or a recent boyfriend) well over $400.

This lime color combo seems to have been made exclusively for Crate and Barrel.

Photos below of what the CL ad had, and the photo from the Crate and Barrel page.
Just need to reassemble in my living room and she is good to go!

I still would have asked if she would take $35. You got all that for $45? You should feel very guilty for robbing her like that.... Wish it were me. Excellent score

Weber bargain of the year!!
I thought mine was a steal at $150.
I always search CL for:
weber, bbq, grill, firewood, log, riding mower, snapper.... it's a full time job.

Waaaaaaay cool score! Even better than my 50 dollar (asking) and 75 dollar offer to insure it was mine.
