I price the stuff at $25 bucks because I want it gone not because I want to make a buck.. and I feel thats where Chad is with this car right now. He has other priorities.. and lets face it.. $65k for a car thats pretty much brand new.. and as he put it.. never been featured/exploited.. is a pretty good deal. Yes its forum famous but there's still a chance the new owner can wrap it up and it will be theres as opposed to say buying my car which for the rest of your life would be known as "Was that Marcus's car" .. etc.
thats why you take marcus'car and paint a big ass pink racing stripe down the middle and make it YOUR car
the whole selling point of un-featured/exploited is a foreign concept to me.
