Add photographers, especially wildlife/wilderness, bunny huggers, and freaky sex fiends. Anybody who wants to explore the outdoors without tearing up the terrain or violating noise, fire danger, and motorized shit, restrictions. Supposedly they are extremely nimble on rough ground, but I wasn't able to find even a wildass guess what they would cost if they became a reality. Probably not more than a snowmobile or Personal water craft, and look how many they sell.

I can see people enjoying nature and running out the batteries in the middle of nowhere, but they do that with gas powered shit too. They have the advantage of carrying solar panels that would get them home...in a few weeks. :rolleyes:

How many badass cars do you have in total, Bruce?

xoxoxoBruce 10-24-2015 12:34 PM

I've been divesting, down from eight to three, with one of them disassembled right now. Plus a beat up old Chevy pickup and car trailer for shuffling stuff. Last week I had to take my snowblower up for service, and with it not running couldn't load it on the pickup alone, so I strapped it to the car trailer and attracted a lot of stares along the way. :haha:

They are selling it for 20k LESS than it cost????

glatt 10-26-2015 01:59 PM

Trying. Trying to sell it for 20K less than is cost. I'll be impressed if they get even that much.

Very seldom does the builder of a custom car reap a profit, unless it wins a shitload of prestigious awards. Even then, it isn't often. Granted this thing was off the wall and couldn't be used as a daily driver, even if you found a way to get it legally on the road with no glass. But most customs are either rolling ads for a body shop's skills, or to please the owner, with the realization selling it they would take a loss.

Think of that loss as money spent on a hobby, that never comes back. Same as you can't catch/eat enough fish to justify the money spent boat/gear/expenses, catching them. But you don't expect to, it's a hobby. I spent $2300 on new upholstery that wasn't needed, I just wanted it.:D
