Nice Price Or No DiceIs this used car a good deal? You decide!

During his campaign, Barack Obama promised change you can believe in. Today, Nice Price or Crack Pipe has a Ford that's had a change we can definitely get behind.

Okay, you can put away your pitchforks and torches, the Omega convertible is gone. A surprisingly modest 69% of you went Crack Pipallistic on the sad little Olds from our neighbor to the north. That car's $2,000 price tag seemed woefully egregious to you, despite the open aridness the custom roof afforded. Today we have another heavily modified candidate with an asking price of twenty Benjamins - a Ford Fairmont racing truck.

Yeah, you heard that right.

It's been a good week for Ford wagons her on NPOCP - what with the stock '66 a few days ago - which was universally feted for its wonderful wagonocity. And now we have a Fairmont wagon which has been turned into a 289-powered, one of a kind race truck. And the seller - who is sadly out of work due to broken hand - is seemingly willing to unload this remarkable machine for a mere two grand.

There's so much good going on in this car that it's hard to know where to start. The beefcake appearance of the brawny 289 in the hood-less engine bay? The shortened roofline and Ranchero-esque open bed? Maybe it's just the whole idea of a Fairmont race truck? There's a lot to take in.

So, what's your take on the two grand asking price for this dragster Fairmont-in-drag? Does that price set your spidey sense a tingling? Or has this Fairmont strayed too far down the modded path to warrant such a premium?

You decide!
