    1950 Buick Roadmaster TLC / ICON Derelict - on ebay - $397,000

    Definitely one of a kind and very cool but that's a lot of money.

    Yep.

    ICON makes some great cars. But that's just too much money.

    Basically because of the company that made it. It's all 100% professionally done, custom frame, custom interior, etc. I agree, it still seems way overpriced to me, but I'm also not the target market for something like this

    I don't know about 400 grand but that definitely isn't a MAACO restoration.

    i think cars that are made to or left to look bad are posermobiles to to max.


    oh look, the rich 52 year old can have a distressed hot rod to live out a fantasy of being a classic hot rodder (who actually wanted their cars to be nice but couldn't afford it.) i put them right up there with the purposefully ratty rat rods.

    yuck...

    I agree. The "patina" look is stupid to me.

    I like seeing fully restored muscle cars like anyone else, but also enjoy seeing worn muscle cars. Not cars that are built to look worn, but actual cars that were driven, raced, sat for years and brought back to life.

    thats what I liked about Blurr's cars. They weren't perfect but were made more than nice enough for the average guy to enjoy putting some miles on it.
