    Sorry, But someone paid Big Bucks for a Dream Appraisal.
    It's sad to say, (I hear it all the time) "Well I've got $XXXXX invested in it, so it Has to be worth That!" Sorry Charlie, No Can do.
    I hear it almost as much as "Well, My car is Just Like the one that I saw (on TV) go across the B-J stage for $$KKKK.......................... except........"

    Yeah, I saw that. I thought the guy was on glue until I realized he's going for the "art" cache. It's not a car anymore, it's a work of art. I think there's something about a fool and his money soon parting...

    When you could spend close to half that for a completely done show car from so many other shops (like kindigit designs for example), why on earth would you pay this for that? I like original patina cars and ones modded but nearly $400k is asinine.

    He'll get that, or close to it, from some clown who has more $$ than brains. There are big buck guys who buy things just to brag they have them. Why do you think so many of them have brainless trophy wives with store bought boobs?

    Could be $39,700.00 Still not going to sell, most Ebay car sellers are dreamers. That is where people get their value's from, you know, What someone is "asking" for their car. Would be nice if there was a database for actual sale prices.

    I'm pretty sure it was...and I thought the cost to build on the show was $300k or maybe $350k.

    At a no reserve auction that thing might fetch a $100k to a beer'd up bidder itchin' to spend money. Can't wait for the "rat rod" phase to die.
