    That actually makes the Roadster look cheap. Roadster is only 40K more and easily twice as capable. :smile:

    Home built conversions pop up on ebay all the time for half the price. Usually always an old truck or two on there for $30,000.

    Plus there is the "plus labor" mentioned with the price on theirs. It is not that different on price... but very different on performance.

    I think they were mistaking people who were actually shaking their heads.
