Good to know.

When we bought our new Mazda neither the dealer nor his brochures mentioned the possibility of "build to order," and I've not seen it mentioned in the car magazines I subscribe to.

In 2015, I wanted a red Mazda Six. I was told they had no control over what models or features they may get. The next red Six might be a sports model, a touring model or the premium model costing several thousand more. I had to give a deposit to get my color. As it turned out, the next red one was the touring model I wanted.

Two of my friends ordered custom Chevys in 1978. One ordered a Nova Rally SS and was told it would be 8-10 months. It was never built and it took forever to get his money back.
The other orddered a Camaro that showed up six months later with the wrong trim package and unwanted t-tops.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

There was a thread here about it a while back.

Remember when your folks went into a car dealer, sat down with a salesman and ordered the specific options for their new car?



I still do that with a lot of my cars. When I buy German cars it is about a 10 week lead time.

One Brioni suit and I usually just buy small BMW convertibles. Nothing fancy.

I have been wanting to buy one of these but $235 is a little more than I want to spend. This is an actual circulated note. The $100 million dollar note is only $11 so I might settle for that.

I think the peak of opportunity was 2010-2012.
I saw prices getting stupid after that.

I used a $100 Billion note next to a picture of Dr. Evil as cubicle decor for a while, and there were a few $1 Millions sitting in the junk drawer when I moved.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Ironic that a 100 trillion Zimbabwean note, literally not worth the paper itís printed on, is now selling for $235
