Yesterday, we had a Chrysler product from a by-gone era that came with a price which made 79% of you say buh-bye to it. Today we've got another pentastar player, but this one is wearing a disguise. Top billed as a 300C, this Phantom wannabe has had a Hollywood makeover, giving it the look of a Rolls Royce in the same way Frank Langella looked like Nixon on film.

And on film is where this car got its start. Built for the movie Duel of Legends and apparently unneeded for potential sequels, this 300 could go straight to your driveway at the same time the flick goes direct to DVD. The suicide rear doors and pinching-a-loaf-squint of the headlamps bring a visual interest to the staid gangster lines of the V8 rear-driver. Despite those styling cues, the Cinemascope-big overlapping Rs on the steering wheel will be a constant reminder that you're driving something from the prop department, and not the real deal

But what really sets this car apart - what alone may make it worth the forty one grand ticket price - is the eBay ad itself. Written in blue all-caps, and in impeccable Engrish, it brings new meaning to salesmanship. Where else will you find choice scripting such as:

IF YOU WANT TO OWN A CAR THAT BRINGS MORE ATTENTION THAN EVEN $400K EXOTIC CARS, THIS ONE IS IT, AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO SPEND $400,000.00 USD. TO DO IT.

or:

IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ ALL THIS, IT WILL ONLY TAKE YOU 4 MINUTES, IF YOU DON'T YOU CAN BE MISSING OUT IN BUYING A COLLECTOR FILM CAR

So, there you have it; a real live Hollywood movie car, and an attention getter as well, for all you shrinking violets. And you can jump over it! But is all that paparazzi-luring panel work a bit over the top? And does the $41,000 asking price get a thumbs up from you reviewers? Or, is that a price that'll make you wait to see it on basic cable?

You decide!

Well I know all of you are rushing to hit crack pipe button, but it's not as bad as a deal as you think depending on how you break this down.

Ok, so a used 300c with like 40k miles can be found for $20k and is probably the best means of going. But let's say you're someone who only wants cars under 1k miles

A brand new 300c will set you back in the $37k range (roughly), since this isn't brand new let's say that the 789 miles sets you back $1k, so that's $36k. Then we are basically down to this argument.

Are the body mods on the 300c (suicide doors, body kits, interior, all installed) worth $5k and are they your style?

I actually like the exterior, but yeah I can't get over the interior. I'd rather go get a used one for $20k and work from there, still it isn't the WORST deal I've ever seen. Or should I say, "NOT WORST DEAL BUT CLASSY RICH MAN GET ROLL ROYCE"
