When you spend most of your life yapping on the phone, you want at least to talk on something that looks cool. I bought this Sculptura phone for $33 on eBay, and believe me it's a bargain! These phones were really popular when I was preteen in the early '80s. I even remember my best pal's older sister constantly talking on her Sculptura while listening to the Cars. The ringer is a little nerve-wracking though. It sorta sounds like an obnoxious travel alarm clock.
