Make money on a Cig???

We were and are dumb to put big power and paint together. We lost 250K on 20 hours in one season. On a new 04. One of you said 12,500/hr. Very good math.

I would like to see a set up of a Cig out of the box that you would make money on/in a resale?? Also, it took 10 months to sell our 04 42X and we can't even move our 46. There just aren't many buyers out there in that market.

They will raise prices until ppl stop buying them. Some of the new pricing is crazy...

Does anyone know how many 46's Cig builds a year.

Twin, can you enlighten me?

I'm not sure how many 46's they build. It's more than I would have ever thought. Some of the price increase is due to the price of resins going up, which is due to crude oil prices. That said, I still think some vee manufacturers are getting pretty ridiculous on prices for what you get in the end. They are a little bit better than what you could have bought 3 years ago, but are almost double the price.
