It's a limited edition reproduction of a classic, that's why it's $21,000.

obvioulsy you could build that power for less, but its for the people who like that limited run/GM crate stuff. Like the 572

Sounds like a dealer created price. I seen what we pay and it suggested no retail price.

And yes, I posted this a month ago when we got the bulletin.

If you want one, let me know - I can do better than that price above -

I just pulled it from the press release, I'm sure dealers are flexible on the price.
I now see Tim posted something about it in November, this was the official release I saw

Not in the market for one but at least some people have common sense..21K for a motor...just a motor..thats a little much..even if it is a remake of one of GM's most powerful engines. Unless your building a car that needs that engine and want new thats the only reason. But for 21K I could do alot of damage with another engine..like a 502 Rat motor or something..
