Nice build, looks much better with the polished silver wheels.

Its been for sale for quite some time and would take $200k to build it...so the price is very fair.

I don't mind modded cars, but I think at this point I'd rather have the bitcoins

I think I like mine and will save the $160k for later.

Reading over the build sheet, sure seems that not much was done as far as suspension upgrades. Sure it has better than stock coil overs, but no mention about pivot points, control arm pickup points, caster/camber plates, sway bars, strut bracing etc., etc.,.
For that kind of dough, I'd expect better components through out.
Just saying....

I dunno Mark, all monoball bushings and mounts in a nice street car? That seems more appropriate to an RS/RSR car than a good performing cruiser.

Hey Chris,

I saw nothing in the ad literature or pictures that indicated anything had been done to the suspension, other than KW coil overs and a strut brace. In fact the pictures showing the underside {as best you can make out} look bone stock and original???

I was more thinking, raised spindles, proper bump steer kit, caster/camber front adjustment plates, Rebel racing front control arm bushings, rear Rebel racing spring plate bushings, after market sways....that kind of stuff, the stuff that works great on the street.

Maybe it's there, and I can't see it, and they didn't bother to mention it???

Don't get me wrong, the car looks nice if your into the RWB look, and the man does have a wicked skill set. I just think you could loose the signature on the dash, and transfer that cult following price tag, and invest a little more into the car.

Mark

Here's what I don't get...
Who drives these cars? And where?

I actually think they look totally awesome. Low, wide, mean. But on the street?? I could never. I mean my plain old black 964 Turbo draws enough...or too much....attention for me as it is. I could never drive around on the street in a car like that - with huge monstrous flares, huge spoilers, winglets etc.

Are they purely for the cars n coffee crowd? for the track? or for those who need and love attention?

I'm not bagging on the cars or the people - truly just curious....

I'm starting to have more conversations with customers, and being involved with discussions in our pre-sales community about crypto currencies and digital ledgers. More and more customers, not just financial institutions, are looking into digital ledgers for security, as well as a lot of the retail banks developing thoughts around Bitcoin. My guess is that we'll see a LOT more on crypto currency in the next 5yrs. It's just a pity that it's a term synonymous with Silk Road and dark web activities, as it has huge potential if used correctly. Anyway, we digress....

hahaha I live in a high rise with a lot of movie/TV people, lots of music industry types, and well known professional athletes (at least, I'm told they are well known baseball and football bore the piss out of me, I'd rather watch videos about engine teardowns).

You should SEE the, um, "taste" of some of them when it comes to their vehicles. There's a Bentley turbo that's done in a hot pink chrome look wrap......entirely! A Lambo that's had the same treatment in eye piercing electric blue, there's a Maybach that's had every little piece of trim, exterior screw, fitment, badge, wheels, window trim picked out in gold, a Panamera that is jacked up on something, painted in some sort of material that looks like pick up bed spray in liner, the list is endless.

^^^That was my thought. The same type of people that like Lamborghinis would be into RWB.
I dig the flared out race car look.The RWB is an exaggeration of that look and crosses over into a cartoon caricature of a race car.

I was picking up my girls at their high school this summer and as we we're walking to my 930 that looks totally stock on the outside, a few HS boys walked by it and one shouted to his friends "look at that RWB!". I had to laugh.

obviously bitcoin accepted, thats like saying no to taking apple stock in trade. you can just sell it for what its worth immediately.

and on what planet would that cost 200k to build?

also, if you start from the bottom of the photos and start scrolling up the car gets better. But ill just fast forward it for ya...

The graph will keep climbing unless I decide to put a little in, then it will crash the next day, and you can buy. It looks like a classic bubble to me, kind of like tulip bulbs, at least tulip bulbs had some intrinsic value..

Some very influential people speculate that bitcoin will continue to grow until the tens of thousands. Itís gone up $2000 in a month. Put your savings no. Put a portion that wonít upset your life if something crazy happens yes. There is so much growth potential because only one small part of the worlds population is active in it. Every day there are discussions like this all around you and one by one more and more people are getting in which drives the value up. It has its 30-45 day corrections but overall it keeps climbing. Now that you can buy bitcoin futures the corrections are expected to get fewer and less dramatic.

lol tulip bulbs. What was that, 17th century? How about bonds backed by sub prime mortgages.

Are you a random walker?
