    Seller can't prove it is they say it is, but we'll ask a ton of money for it anyways.

    Some people love them, but man, I’m not a fan of the bullnose commando.

    So, are the SC decals worth an extra $10-15,000? Yes, not a fan of the bullnose, (though I could live with one), but that color scheme is hideous, and I even went to Carolina (light blue school colors)! Looks like the chrome bumpers are painted silver and the license assembly should be on the center plinth. I pretty sure SC's got special seat upholstery, at minimum. This has incorrect highback seats. The stripes should extend full length, front to back too.

    If someone gave it to me I'd refuse to take it.

    If you squint when you look at it you can almost figure out where the Gremlin came from :)

    Streetside Classics. They are a bunch of tools. They never know what they’re talking about. I’ve sent notes to them on some of their cars because they are way off base on their descriptions. They say thanks but never change the ads.

    Some rich people can buy it for fun. People with easy money. Good to go to the beach.
    There is no price for this.
    It's like wine.
    Some people pay xxxx$ to buy a wine bottle of 100 years.
    No miracle inside !
    Sorry, but I'm late, Jeff Bezos waits for me for a trip around the planet...:D

    I too have brought up glaring errors in their listings a couple times on Triumph TR8's that they have listed, including TR7's repowered as a clone of the represented TR8. Yes, they never changed or even added updates that I have brought to their attention. One was showing like 10,000 "original" miles on the speedo, only problem is it was a 140 mph speedo. TR8's only came to North America with an 85 mph speedo. Earlier TR7's used the 140 speedo.
    Streetside doesn't care!
