    Looks clean and all that, but $14K is more than a bit steep

    An appraised value is always BS...look at the engine compartment and tell me if you think it was worth 14K...

    Nope, and I really don't ever want to own something like that where it is basically a museum "Door stop," and not an enjoyable thing to own.

    I think someone looked at all the wiring and plumbing that's typical for an M-body, decided to shut the hood, and forget that it was even there.

    You'd get busted here, too.

    I had a buddy who won an old Suburban ambulance in a raffle. It was complete, even with a gurney in the back. He got pulled over by a sheriff's deputy one time and was asked to turn on the lights. When they started flashing red, the sheriff gave him an option: disable the lights or find a color other than red for the lenses. A week later his ambulance was sporting yellow lenses.

    Some states will give exemptions. But you have to prove the pedigree. I want to build a clone of a NYS trooper car with the old Sunoco colors. I can go down to the local troopers' barracks and get the waiver that will allow me the bubblegum machines on top, but I need to show documentation that the car was indeed a bonafide cop car which saw duty as a police officer first.

    But if I get caught pulling someone over, or running the lights just for the fun of it outside a parade or show...well, then the exemption is pulled and no more clone.
