I'm sure that's with the R&D costs included.

I upload photos to a gallery here on BF -- click the pic and it comes up in your gallery with the inline code to simply cut and paste the link.

Pretty ballsy putting a two-door in the G lineup.Or was it already there? I know the old ones were... People nowadays buy their SUV's for people hauling alone. The real enthusiasts build them. It does give off a less gaudy vibe than the others.

I do believe they've stopped making the three door version all together. I'd like to find a nice rust free older one and do a restoration!

Yea, it stinks they're somewhat rare and pricey since they're all grey-market before 2000 or so. Though I've seen a couple runners in the 10-15k range. Also the engine lineup was kind of anemic, a t least in the 80's... Except the super rare ones that got the 5.0 from my car.

If there's a V8 under the seats I'd have one of those too.
