This is a clip from a TV show called Sticker Shock. When I first saw the appraisal, I couldn't believe it was worth that much. First of all, it doesn't run, so it's no longer a car, but a sculpture. Secondly, while I like custom cars, they're probably not everyone's cup of tea.

Do you think the truck is worth $100,000? If not, how much do you think it's worth?

the rarer something is, the more valuable it is. clearly, that pickup truck is a relic, so a high price is understandable. (though an appraisal price is worthless until there is an actual buyer willing to spend that much)
having said that, if i had an extra $100k to spend on a car, i would much rather get a lamborguini instead.
that pickup truck is ugly, i dislike the decal, and it doesnt even run = oversized doorstop

As someone who loves cars and vehicles a lot I could see someone spending that much if that truck means that to them. You buy cars because it makes you happy, not because it'll be worth it.

That being said, I'm one that wants cars that give me emotion while driving them and not just something that'll sit in the garage. So even if someone said they'd give me that truck I probably wouldn't take it. Whereas, if it was an old Alfa, Lancia, Porsche, Alpine, McLaren, etc. I wouldn't have any issues spending thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions to own and experience a piece of automotive and racing history.

No, but I am not the market for something like that. The people who want crap like that truck coukd easily see over $100,000. You could buy a nicer, newer truck without the damage and garish paint job for that, though.

It's about $40 of scrap.

I can see why it's so much even if it's not a truck in my opinion anymore. it's been stripped down and near the low rider nonsense which some serious truck owners don't like. since it has all those features and still doesn't run, well worth the price for collectors. after all vintage and antiques are a good way to stock hold money, there's no taxes on them from year to year, it's like owning land and not putting any building of any sort on it. even if someone wanted to return it to a real truck, then they don't have to do much work, but will have to put some money to it and engines are super easy to find, just got to know where to look, including parts. there's also the option of buying another truck, same year/model and using one set of parts for the other. another thing people who rebuild or into this sort of expensive hobby.

That's not a truck.

I would not pay 100k for that.

I would pay $20 for some spray paint to go over that crime of a paint job though.

Only if it got everything, one of a kind.. meaning it got own bed, got nice ac, and heater I'm talking about advance one. Imagine using that truck for your job.. like for example Pizza delivery guy! LOL You can left the back to get access to food..

I guess what I'm saying is, it'll only worth it if it got everything you don't need house.. But I'm being unrealistic! XD

That's a good one

ill give you $20,000

Not even knowing what he grabbed it for. A low rider? Art? Car culture.

I've seen a friend Who built his own truck and had it appraised for close to $17,000, but the paint job is simpler, and its almost mint.

Fucking people, 100k my ass,

That seems to be the thing with those who collect vehicles.
The value is distinguished based on the historical value that the vehicle has on the community.
Due to the fact that, even with the "horrible paint job" - it's accurate to its original design (mostly).
Would I, personally, purchase this for $100,000?
Definitely not.
It doesn't drive, which would possibly lower its value if I tried to get it to the point of being drivable.
It's a risk that doesn't have much outcome unless it's a vehicle that has personal importance or cultural to when I "got into the culture of vehicles".
This truck does not fit into either of those categories.

It's the value for the truck being the front page of a magazine that's (apparently) a re-surging trend. I could totally see the owner sinking another $30k into the truck trying to getting it back to "mint" condition, and not being able to find a buyer for it.
