The reason cost is high.   Cars are being pulled off assembly line and brought to Penske facility and then painted by a human not robot and then clearing virtually entire car again.  They are burying  the stripes in the clear and will  have a much nicer finish from what I am told.  Not crazy when you think about the extra time spent  and and virtually painting  an entire car again.   

Just my 2 cents from a bodymans standpoint.  lol

Good point. I had no idea what all was involved; which is reflected in my ignorance.  Thanks!  :D

Ton of typos on my last reply. Sorry. I was waiting in court so I didn't keep as close an "eye on the a.i."

if you need bail money,  you know we are just a phone call way...

I need 10geeeees. But it won't be spent on bail money...

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

I don't care the reason. Anyone willing to pay that for stripes is foolish.

Those cars depreciate very significantly. Buy a 60s Shelby with stripes and watch it appreciate.

My dealer wants 82 for a '19 R model. 10 over sticker. I just saw a '17 with 6,000 sell for 47. How are they a good deal?
