Default Miami Vice Scarab $20Mil on Ebay ????

This seems to be a little steep even with the historical significance. I believe there was other discussion on here about there being multiple other boat too.

I don't think Don Johnson's DNA on the seat is worth that much. Perhaps the cabin is still loaded with drugs seized from baddies on the show or maybe the seller has smoked the entire load himself.

funny how people think because its was on TV that its worth a mint. Its not worth 50 K period.

If this was something that can cure cancer and the common cold and make a bald person grow hair and turn a 3 incher into a 10 incher - then lets all chip in for the 20 million buy for the fountain of youth, good health and become a porn star legend.

Default $20M? After hyperinflation maybe?

Since I'm not the 'Rainbow Warrier' type, I'd buy one of the two Miami Vice Testarossa cars. They usually change hands for around a million dollars. Then I'd get on the Testarossa's car phone with the owner of Larry Smith's famous 48 Team Scarab diesel boat and give him an offer he couldn't refuse and still have some pocket change left.

I'm thinking that must come with the TV show rights also.
Really though, its just testing the waters. A number like that just gets attention on a local news stations, web forums and such. Then they will try to really sell it later after they made connections with real people interested in it. I mean who would do a 20 million deal through eBay?

Lots of old threads on the boat. People who have seen it up close have commented that the resto was not that well done.
