Non-VIN production car...... too bad, I thought maybe they were going to go after the Demon on the streets. Now that would be cool-

I would agree.  Make it for the street.   These race cars are a waste of money in my opinion.  They'll never have any big collectability.

Straight line and 302S and GT4 cars are a ton of fun if one is using them as intended.

           I remember a friend saying something like that about the 50 factory '68 lightweights in '68.
    3,500 then 100,000 now?  HMMM.  I'm sure there are plenty of the previous years being held in speculation. No different on the 2018s IMHO of course.
Celebrating 44 years of drag racing 6S477 and no end in sight.

At SAAC Elkhart Lake we had a pair of 302S cars and a 302R out there tearing it up with no thought whatsoever for collectibility.
Just driving them as intended.

There was a third 302S on somebody’s trailer.

Big difference is humans will not be driving cars in 50years IMO.

Yup, we will all cruise around in Landspeeders (Starwars) either autonomously or driven by robot clones, on our way to vintage car auctions to sell vehicles that are no longer allowed as fossil fuels will be banned.   8)

+++++1!  I just wish this car would be street legal. Truly a shame, especially for the price.

I can't justify buying the car but, I want the grille emblem for a wall hanger.
