A complete exterior grade double-sided illuminated sign this size was sold in Richmond a few months back for ~ $400.

That's just what it is worth selling for to me. If it's too expensive then I will just keep it. It's cool.

I forgot you guys need to save up for repairs.

Or for the next sign that comes up for sale. But in all seriousness your price wouldn't be all that out-of-line if it was complete with the mounting and electrical backing.

Good luck with the sale!

Haha. So true. That show is somewhat addictive. I can't stand the shop chick though.

i have actually never seen this show....and i had no idea what a fair price would be. For what it is worth i will just keep it and install as i was planning. For a couple hundred it is really not worth the effort nor would i want to part with it for that amount. Thanks for all the feedback.

There is a big difference between "too expensive" and "not worth the money".

You might just be peddling the latter...

I just called my buddy a Market Mgr at LR, to see if he could find a few...

A&W, you are right, it probably isn't worth selling for 150, keep it and install it. I will look nice in your garage.

When you get tired of it, someone will buy it.

You can't hang the sign on your wall if you don't have a Land Rover..!!!!.. might as well just hang it next to your ferrari sign.. or you could just write in little letters above it...I own a... and then below the sign ..the word sign...and the same with the ferrari sign....

I called a few today and they all just shuffled me around so I left VM's. One of the guys I left a VM is famous for having a Pink Panther in the showroom (anyone from NJ around here will know who I'm talking about) so we'll see. I'm doubtful.

I have a few leads so far. Word I got was the dealers originally bought and paid for the signs (at least my dealer did) so they said no way to LRNA when asked to return them to be destroyed. They're out there and I suspect the smaller ones will end up on ebay.
