Default Why Apache are so expensive?

Can someone TRY to explain or even convince me why APACHE are so expensive, even when they are 15-20 years old????

If you look in the classifieds here, if you compare with almost anything else, such as Cigarette, Seems or feels like they are always 150000$ and over!!!

WHY? WHY?? WHY???

There's some truth to all that for sure .... and all this internet hooplah don't hurt either !!!! One thing i have noticed lately .... the ones that have sold have come down DRASTICALLY in price to get sold ..... There is some mystique to some of them ..... and they do ride nice .... mostly because they are long and heavy for the most part .... the question ya really gotta ask yourself however is ..... "What's in a name ?"

Hey ... that gives me an idea for a thread .....

Mine did not sell for a ridiculous price, and they are heavy and slow. But worth EVERY penny

Kind of like comparing a Z06 to an exotic sports car. A Z06 will probably out run the exotic, but you won't see 4 other exotics at the stoplight either.

Make an offer on one, regardless of price! You might be surprised.
