$17k for a Series III is crazy money, especially as an opening bid...wonder if it was a real bid or not, considering Reserve wasn't met.

Nice truck. Not sure that 17k is "Crazy money". Seems like this guy does not want tire kickers.

Paint job is not that good, notice the run on the rt rear and how the badge is attatched. For $17k + I would expect more. Still it's a nice truck, I don't know what "crazy money" is any more.

Well, Rita comes to mind at roughly 1/3 of the price.

Well, it's a mashup of wagon, soft top and aftermarket. It is what it is. Not an original unmolested S3 by any measure, but hey, is there one that is anymore? If someone is willing to pay this for it, then who are we to say it's wrong?

It's close to 2/5, not 1/3... JK.

It's a bit steep, but if you were to do all that work, the price tag will be up that amount.

One thing... What's up with the DI spares?

At one time these were the thing to have on your series rig. Not in fashion any more, but a hot look in the 90's.

Hey the D1s are cool! I put a set of 265/75 mud terrains on it. I sold it with the original skinnys, painted to match the hardtop. It was much more stable at freeway speeds with the D1 setup...

It was the desire to drive freeway speeds and stop quickly that led me to Defenders tho...
