Had this been presented without the bullshit story, as the basis for an interesting period-correct modded car project, it's not out of line, but still pricey. This is at most $3,000 worth of car right now, with maybe $500 for the turbo kit. Maybe. (I'm being generous.)

And I'm sure they gladly refunded his fare. » 10/09/14 12:01pm 10/09/14 12:01pm

It's an amazing and rare car. There's nothing to argue about desirability, rarity, and condition here. It's got all 3. Making it 100% bone stock again wouldn't take much if you're a purist. It just seems a bit overpriced. Not by much. But overpriced.

I wanted to vote NP, but couldn't. What tipped it for me is that I… » 10/08/14 8:07am 10/08/14 8:07am
