People even paid good money for the Pontiac Aztec, so beauty is obviously in the eye of the beholder.
    Thumbs up for the Aztec reference. I guess I am just amazed that there were at least 2 people who liked it.

    There was a thread here about a Silver Snake Python that went for $14K I think. The matte silver finish, ugly machine(?) engraving and rubber grips (really, rubber grips on a limited edition gun!) looked like crap to me. it made a $3K gun a $1k gun in my book, but to each his own - I guess at least it was rare.

    Looks like it was done with a center punch and a hammer, now after a bottle of Jack, it will look good

    As mentioned, it looks like a little engraving and a lot of punching. Not very attractive.

    Not my taste either but am not surprised at the price---people can get caught up in auctions one reason I tend to stay away from them.

    I'm not a big fan of engraving so the price for me is way too high.
