New top price?

Postby Sleeka » Mon 14.08.2017, 06:31

Not mine but saw this posted. Has there been a more expensive ask (other than rare prototypes and such)?

Nice guy that is from my home town that I have had a few emails with. Can't drive the car where he is because the roads suck and it's winter for many months of the year.

Good luck.

Its a great looking car and all but that is a lot of money, especially for a car that no longer looks original! I do like that paint colour though.

Bloody horrible ... somehow I'd expect the driver to have green stripes up his face too ... :lol:

Also, I'd expect that yellow instrument pod cover to reflect onto the windscreen when the sun shines on it ... style not function is not my cup of tea...

I agree with you about the paint job but it did cost an alleged $10,000 dollars :shock: I would hope it looked good for that price :?

Pity Rick didn't spend anything on the engine bay. It looks very unloved and untidy :? Have a glimpse at the 2nd row, 2nd photo in to see what I mean

the color is fabulous - the detailing not so much..
Good luck to him with his sale, hope he has plenty of patience!
