    I said it once, I'll say it again: too many with too much money and not enough common sense.

    I think the same when I see what some will pay for old rusted muscle cars. Those early Japanese vehicles have a big following.

    So do Dodge vans in Japan ('Dajiban,' pronounced "dah gee bahn"). That doesn't change the fact they're asking big, big dollars for hardly usable junk you'd have to pay big bucks to rehab into a driveable car.

    It's a supply and demand thing. I don't get it either myself. Like I said, I've seen rusted worthless(in my opinion) Hemi cars or rare Mustangs go for crazy money that should have been scrapped and made into a washing machine. Case in point. This Daytona sold for $90k and the new owner is preserving it as is.

    That's because there are sphincter muscles who'll pay big buxx for 'patina.' On the other hand, it is an Aero car, which are approaching unobtainium. Between the already-restored cars getting scrapped because idiots play smash-'em-up derby and the thirst for continually restoring everything down to the basket case, it's no wonder some prices are in orbit around Mars or even Jupiter.
