Default Would You Pay Six Figures For It?

http://www.foxnews.com/auto/2017/03/...-auctions.html

A 68 Charger made to look like a 70
Small block Chevy with a "faux blower"

If I had 6 figures sitting around to burn I think I could find some better way to blow it.

Maybe 30 years I would have thought it was cool. I have no interest in owning or even driving something like that. Getting old is a bitch.

No. Growing up, we had a collection of Shelby Mustangs, they were neat, but a lot of new vehicles would run circles around them. Old technology, brakes, lack of AC etc.

Not a chance for such a bastardized mess of various pieces parts. I find it hard to believe film notoriety would demand 6 figures??

If it was an original.... all bets would be off for what it could go for.

The real take-away for me is, just an hour ago I scheduled to pave new streets in a project close to the fairgrounds that week. I may have to reconsider that because traffic will be an absolute mess

It'll be 6 figures because of the movie and who sat in it.

I believe that documented cars from some movies go up in value at a faster rate than other collectible cars. The fact it doesn't have the original drive train, actually has a chevy engine and is made to look like a different model make no difference, it only enhances the provenance. It's a movie car not an original collector muscle car.

Now, if the driver/actor was to die suddenly, the value might go up even faster.....

Not sure if it's lined up right with the price. But if I had it to burn? Damn right I'd get it.

I've spent a fair amount of money on cars (collectable and/or rare) that are not daily drivers. Still, the money I spend on boats eclipses my hot rod budget.

No, and I'd feel embarrassed for the guy who takes it to the car show.

Good point... I didn't look at it from this angle.

A bastardized 68 Charger with a fake blower? Pass. Agree with the embarrassment comment.
