Ok, how much do you guys think this sticker:

1. Should cost.

They messed up on the French. It reads "Use this jack only for changing the tires one's self this vehicle".

That will surely lower the value.

Personally, I think replacement safety warning stickers should be available for free.

At most, it should cost about $3, but it's probably something ridiculous like $24.12

I just priced out a stripe kit for a 2010 Mustang GT500 - Ford wanted $2900 just for the white vinyl racing stripe and rocker stripes.

They did get the money from China as a loan. They forced our unborn grandchildren to sign the note.

Gov"t Motors

Is that the new cost since the government took over . like the old $500 dollar toilet seats , Who got the contract to furnish them the Govt Motors. Henry Ford sold model T cars at a loss then made up for it on repair parts.

30-40 years ago I remember reading somewhere that if a car was made from dealer-bought parts, the cost would be something like $200K. This was when most US cars were well under $10K/each.
