The planets are lining up! Earthquakes are going to destroy the Solms plant 
for their evil plot to scratch film, keep our 75 Summiluxs out of focus to 
enrich the film  manufacturers that give them kickbacks of $666 for each 
M666 they sell!

Buy your Leicas fast. No 700 LUGBC clubber will want to be without one!

For only $35 a month, for the next 666 months, you can have your very own 
trilateral millennial edition M666 set. It includes a special M6 with 
goatskin leather, a viewfinder with frames for one lens - a 50mm 0.7 
Noctilenial and a viewfinder magnification of 1.0X.

It comes with a built-in lens shade and a UV filter that has no glass, but 
comes with a bottle of Scotchguard to spray on the front element to protect 
it. No red dots. It has a black dot, with the name Leica M666 inscribed, in 
black. But red tape is available to cover it.

And if you act now, we'll throw in the commemorative R8 Armageddon edition 
motor drive. It comes inscribed with the immortal words:

"When hell freezes over, and it did." *

*(Subject to availability. Offer not valid in any state where Canon or 
Nikon is offering a similar deal, or it's illegal, or both. Warning, red 
tape is known to cause blindness in subjects not wearing shades. Leica will 
not accept liability for unfulfilled promises, prophecies or failed claims 
that this is the end of the world. Unless the R8 motor drive does appear, 
then it surely is the end of all time.)
