Who needs a new Toyota when you could have this?

The average price of a new car is now @$31,000.  For that, and possible considerably less, given that it's an auction, you could own this ...

Wow.  The pertinent data being this ...

Hanging scroll, ink and color on paper
Entitled, inscribed, and signed by the artist, with two seals
Dated end of year, yichou year (1985)
53 x 25 3/4 in. (134.5 x 65.5 cm.)

Pre-sale estimate is 25-30K.  If I had an extra 25 grand I would totally step up on this.  I am particularly taken with the eyes.

Here's a second image ...

The man has an affinity for geese.  Or whatever these things are.

And back to the car business for just a second, you could take the $30-35K you were planning on spending on a new Camry, buy a well-preserved 2006 model for a couple of grand, then buy "Cranes" at Christie's, and you'd have a rock-solid car and something to fill a major bit of wall.  What a deal.
