ebay will never become Barrett Jackson!

I's be surprised it it sell for the 225 he's asking, if he does good for him!

I must be confused, the economy has rebounded that good?

Not at my house...

JMO but it's always been a shill game . Always was plenty of money out there at the top. Just not funneling down like it used to.... Folks who can consider that car always had and continue to have plenty of money.

My attorney!

I've have seen a few of the super high-end fabricators talk about their hourly fee... you'd be surprised. $75-80 bucks an hour BUT they aint building your dream car in a week. These kinds of builds take years. He was probably making $10-20k payments every couple months til it was done. Ridler cars take thousands of hours to build.

Oh..I guess you got just an average attorney. Really "big" names get way North of that.
And in LA it's $120. an hour for a dealer to look at your DD and most specialty shops are getting at least that as well. And they have folks waiting in line to have their 'toys" worked on.
Again this car is not a normal build and won't bring "normal" money. It's a show piece and eventually will get big money. maybe not $225K but big $ none the less.

With so many people sitting on his face all day I'm surprised he can get that cowboy hat to stay on his head.

Just because some guy paid 300k for a car to be built does not mean its worth even close to that on the re-sale market. It is beautiful and top notch no one is disputing that . My only issue would be the solid axle and a 80ish paint scheme. I could live with the live axle but not the paint.

Its only worth $225 if someone will pay it. Guess we will find out.

People always want to brag about how much they have in a car, cost to build, hours to build etc. IMO, that's all irrelevant. It's the final product that's for sale, not what it took to get there.
