If you don't mind me asking. What's the most you spent on a JL? I was just curious. My wife seems to think I spend too much money on JL's. Thought maybe I could prove her wrong. Personally the most i've spent was 20.00 on the 10th anniversary Ecto1 a. It's still my favorite Jl followed closely by the skylines. :thumbsup:

About $100 for the car on the bottom left in this picture:



and about the same for this one:



It can be as expensive as you want it to be! Certain items I deemed worthy to spend the money on, and some I've passed on that cost less money. Collect what you like and can enjoy. If money is an object, just tell yourself you don't need that item, because there's plenty more where that came from!

I have spent $17.50 a piece for 2 WL Camaros.
and $15.00 for a Limited Edition Cuda.
being as it is a toy and most of the items are new I say nothing more than $20.00; however that is just me.

$20- 25 dollars, but after learning you can wait a month or two til the rush & hype is over, almost all of it becomes easier & cheaper pickings. Nowdays it has to be reasonable priced to begin with for me. They's some pretty rare stuff out there - stuff that will never come down but rather, just go higher. Really, its all up to the person- have you compared the price that you bought the Ecto for to what you could give for it now? :lol: sometimes the wife wins - sometimes you'll win :) as long as it works, you can enjoy it for the pleasure and enjoyment, thats what counts anyways, no matter what the price is. As for the investment end of it, well you know- the lower you buy the better-
