Welcome to the Sunday Edition of Hooniverse Weekends. The Green Hornet Movie hasn’t been generally released yet, but the “Black Beauty” will undoubtedly be the focal point of the film, and there will be many more of these “replicas” appearing over the course of the next couple of years. So, this is one very clever way of marketing this car…..
I saw this thing cruising around the Ebay “Other Makes” category. It is for sale from a dealer in Mamaroneck, New York, and without further delay, here is what he has to say about it.
Now is your chance to own The Black Beauty ( Replica). This car will be extremely popular now that the movie is coming out. This is an all steel build, with rockets,machine guns,smoke machine,police scanner,5 tv’s ,cameras, Navigation,custom leather interior,suede headliner, 525hp 440 cu motor,custom transmission,new suspension,disc brakes,lots of chrome and stainless,etc. For 300+ build photos go to www.myspace.com/aalimusines car also in numerous youtube videos from 2010 Culver City car show with George Barris. No money was spared on this build. Must be seen to be appreciated. Any questions please call.
In the Question and Answer area of the ad, Anthony (the seller) is looking for $100,000 for the Green Hornet Replica. He also has the Monkeemobile, and is offering that for $120,000! See the Ebay Listing here.
Is a Movie Replica really worth that amount of money, even before the movie is released? Tell me how you feel.
