Finished is good.

That is probably less than 10% of the build cost

I was thinking the same thing. However, this is no fresh build here, they have put some miles on that sucker, I am thinking it was built in the eighties. To to the link and check out the rust on the bottoms of the doors and over the rear wheels! I just read the text, it was a "show truck" in the 90's and it does "need some work", really?

Could you just imagine the conversation that happened right after the used car manager returned to the lot after lunch and found out that his new Jr. Salesman had just swapped straight across a 69 GTO for the GGGGGGMMMMMCCCCC (long truck) because he thought he had a potential customer for it?

Hmmmmm?

Don't you mean 10% of the Bondo cost?

And here I was worried about 1/16-1/8" in spots.

I wonder about the turning radius, it might take close to as much room to turn as my semi. I also wonder about the drive shaft length? I wonder if all the rears drive or if just one and the rest are tag axles?

That and the fact that some of these people put a BUNCH of time and mondy into these cars, yet they are a placenta. SOMEONE loves them, besides the owners, there are people who see these cars and go "DAMN that's cool". I can't take it any longer, I don't want to go out of my way to look at these cars, it hurts my head.
