    A Jeep with a rat racer paint job? That's silly. I can't even imagine the super micro demographic that would want that.

    Hint: they live downtown Seattle or Portland and they're often referred to as "hipsters".

    I like the concept, but not the execution. And the asking price? Vulgar. Let's see, which would I rather have...acreage, or a JKU? Tough call...

    These are the same people who will pay $250 or more for a pair of worn, ripped jeans, stained with paint. It blows my mind.

    Billy Joel once sang, "You can't dress trashy till you spend a lot of money".

    I beg to disagree!

    Just what are these buyers doing for a living that they could drop $98K on a vehicle that could not be resold for $20K (parts) next year?

    I always wonder this myself. Clearly there’s a ton of people out there that make far more money than I thought.

    I have to agree with @Squatch on this ...love the idea and yeah I love seeing ‘patina’ but not in this case.
    Id give it an 3 out of 10 for effort, and note saying that little Jimmy could do very well if he just applied himself and must try harder next time.
