I know i would of never been able to afford one, (heck, even when they were under $100)
I just happen to stumble upon a nice all-green car at TRU a while back, and then recently(ok about a month ago) traded it with cool, the 'wl king' as i've seen him called, for this car. ITs about the only way i can afford such luxary items in the die-cast world, trades, because i would never be able to fork out that kind of money out-right..
But apperantly in this auction, there are 4 people that can afford it. More power to them, but again, little more than i would be willing to spend.
