It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority.
Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.

This has been on here before somewhere. I'm not sure what "statement" would be made driving that around with a grille like that on the front. A lack of taste perhaps?
Someone really had more money than sense if they paid over $20,000 for a grille and steering wheel!

I agree Chris....
$5,500 for a steering wheel! I’d want it made out of a precious metal for that!

This car has been for sale many times. Now the asking price is getting in line with the value today. Why just two pictures though? :)

Ooops!
I must have missed the previous ad for it.
Chris_R nicely sums up what I was also thinking and made me smile.
And yes, the interior deserves a few photos.
This car is another example where a host of expensive mods have done nothing to enhance its appeal.
The opposite, I feel.
