I duuno... Don't think I'd want a NOS one in the packaging, wouldn't want to install it either... Guess it could be considered an investment, probably be better than my IRA(don't ask)...

I bought mine from someone on here for $100,then had Korn on the cob recal,reset mileage,total investment was around $130.Bought another one on here,cheap,flipped it on E-bay,tripled my investment.I just bid on the one that was on E-bay this past week.I didn't score it,it fetched $255.You guys that find them in salvage yards are way lucky.You could probably take it out and put it in your pocket,then sell it for $300.
