I was going to look for Garage or for the Brits here Car Boot sales and I found one that a 17 year old was running he had only 4 soakers so I bought them all. This dumb kid had no idea of the value of what he sold me for 7$ (All prices in USD)

CPS 3200 $2
CPS 1700 $1
MXL $3
SS 300 $1


Another one had

XP65 $2.50
XP 270 :laugh: $1.00

Yet another had
CPS 2000 Mk.1 :) $15.00
XP 220 $0.50
SS 50 x3 $1.50 each



This is great I got an XL and a 2000 and other great soakers for less than $38 YES!!!

That's a heck of a deal. You could probably make a mint with those on ebay if you don't want to use 'em. Good job.

Wow! Lucky you! Not only did you find rare, sought-after soakers, you even got them so much below even their original retail value!

If you end up using them, enjoy 'em! If you sell 'em, well, you're bound to make a good profit online.

Just a thought, I don't mrean to impose, but man.. that font color kills my eyes.

Edit: I previously wrote 'font' instead of 'font color'

With actual weapons in battle, throughout history, mounting weapons on vehicles has been to increase the mobility of weapons otherwise difficult to carry and use. Weapons that have been mounted have traditionally been those that a single person cannot carry.

Considering that all Super Soakers can be carried and be used by one person alone, mounting them is unnecessary in my opinion.

Although it would seem a novel concept, the practical functionality of mounting Super Soakers on automobiles is low.

I cannot justify it well, however the notion of actually using motor vehicles in water wars also seems similarly limited, practically. Unnecessary, I mean.

Especially with the kiddies running in and out of the street. Someone jumps in front and someone jumps in back- What are you going to do, squash him/her??? No, you sit there and get hosed, due to the fact that you can't rotate your mounts. Having a couple guys sitting in the bed holding them as an APC type thing would be better idea- but autos and waterwar don't mix. Unless it is that drop dead awesome gokart.

Well said, bb1. That's a point that I had not thought of;

One reason for which Water Wars are so popular is that there's no risk. There's the thrill of an intense shooting-type game, without pain or risk.
Bringing something like cars into water fights is a poor idea... cars can kill.

HOLY FREAKIN" CRAP! WOW!!! I'm sure that everyone is jealous of you! Boy, I sure wish that I could come across someone who owned guns like those and was completely ignorant of their value. If you really wanted to, you could make hundreds on ebay by doing that!
