We would say the same thing about purchasing a Cezanne, Pollack or Picaso for hundreds of millions of dollars, or paying $200,000 for a pigeon...
Their beauty is in their simplicity and clean lines. Although I do believe that 20-50M is kind of crazy for a car, it's no worse than 120M for a painting by van Gogh.

The guy (according to Wikipedia) is not some multi-billionaire either.
On the cupholders thing, that "Rubbberqueen" one seemed like it'd be the same idea as Ultimate Cupholder; thrak - thoughts?
Evans isn't hugely wealthy, a large chunk of his money is actually tied up in his cars. Which isn't a bad investment, since most appreciate 10-15% /yr.
