Default Most Outrageous Part Price

I am curious on what the most outrageous price for a part. I just recently went to the dealer to replace the glove box lamp lense on my Park Avenue. $75!!! Went down the street to the bone yard and got one of a 96 Lesabre for only $1.50. Tell us about your outrageous part price experiences.

I replaced the heater blower motor on a ch-47 chinook today. Looked up the price for a replacement. It costs $20,420.00 for a axial blower fan. Thats twice what I paid for my bonneville. Could pick up the same thing in a parts yard for $100. I know that at least Boeing is making a killing selling replacement parts.
