I spoke to the guy who built it. He said while the motor he built was expensive, he advised me not to go over 20k buying it. He'd be comfortable at 18k....20 if I "had" to have it. Take that for what it's worth.

No way you could build this car for under 25K, I know, I kept the receipts. Still, we all know that doesn't guarantee you the same amount in return. If the car had a nice paint job, it could easily fetch the 30 he wants. I traded that car for a 20k car and felt that was a fair exchange and honestly would have taken less in cash. That's just me though.

However, after spending some time looking online during my holiday downtime, I have determined there is nothing but junk out there!! (Aside from the high priced collector cars I don't look at or care about) . The driver market has a bunch of overpriced crap with a very, very small spattering of nice cars built with quality parts. I can see where he's coming from with the high price on the wagon...
