Guess who got another antique radio?

Dear eBay, f*** you.  You’re going to kill me with all your thousands of RCA Victors, Philcos, Wards Airlines, etc.  I should have never gone to that damn site and entered “antique radio” into the search bar.  Since then, I can often be found gazing at my iPhone screen, cursing at my eBay app because some total creep used eSnipe and outbid me at the last second.

Anyway, I managed to win an auction finally (because I play fairly and don’t cheat like a big butthead) and scored myself a 1942 Firestone Air Chief Intercepter.  The seller didn’t know the year, but since he was kind enough to list the model number, I was able to locate it.  It was only $53 with shipping!  When it came, it was in a huge box!  Imagine my surprise to find out that this baby is 19″ long and 12″ tall!!! It’s a monster!

Here it is:
