Default Bonneville I found in Vegas (third pic added)

Was walking through the Imperial Palace in Vegas in their show room where you can buy expensive cars/rare cars. And found this beauty. I wish I had the money for it because it'* only going for $25,500 and it'* a 1963 (Oh these are HDR photos too)

these cars go through one hell of a detailing job before they are put into this room. There is a 1961 bonne in there, it'* white and they want $52,000 for it. But in the room adjacent to this room is a car that is worth $3,500,000.00

If I had the money, it would be a no-brainer purchase.

$25,500, eh? Maybe I ought to slap a coat of wax on MY '63 Star Chief...
It'* 100% original (well, except for the tires ), about 120k miles, 389 ci, runs and drives better than some of the Bonnevilles here at BC!

Tempting... I'd definitely go for that over the ~26K.

The problem with both of those cars is parts availability. Very few parts are reproduced(if any).
