I guess if you have a hard time finding a Factory 100-S a Factory 100-M will
have to do.........
I looked on the Nada site last week the 100-M was around $115,000. USD and
the 100-S was Around $189,000 USD . the 100-S is way under priced .
When a 1959 Fender Stratocaster electric guitar is selling for $25K USD,
Art youu can play, a Factory 100M for $115 K might not be a bad deal ,Art
you can drive. A BJ8 phase II car on NADA is $78,100. K
Rich folk pay millions for paintings, whatever turns your crank.......
