Nice Price Or Crack PipeIs this used car a good deal? You decide!

79% of our readers thought that $25,000 was a hubba-fied price for 1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z, but maybe that's because 80s nostalgia hasn't taken a firm enough hold of our culture yet. That's why we're going with a car everyone appreciates: Herbie The Love Bug! Unlike what you'd experience with your $21,750 General Lee Replicas, you won't keep running across other Herbies out there, because the world Herbie-to-General-Lee ratio is about 1:150 these days. This '63 Beetle has had an obsessively thorough restoration, and the price shows it: $20,000. Cool car, but 20 grand worth of cool? You decide!

Well, it's half the price of the "real" Herbie from the Lohan crapfest.

But it's $4k more than "Max" from the current round of VW ads:

Realistically, without any provenance, a replica Herbie is worth no more than any restored non "Herbie" Beetle. A restored 1963 Beetle isn't worth $20k.

As seems typical within the NPoCP series, this seems to be about twice what would be considered an optimistic price. Crack pipe, my friend. Crack pipe.
