Everyone's definition of "cheap" is different .... I thought 250$ was cheap for a 1/8 scale iroc Camaro , you might feel differently .... Plan on at least 75 for a 1/12 and 150 and up for 1/8 ... 

"rare" kit? no such thing!

build it, dont let it sit on the shelf.....

you cant take it with you, hearses dont have luggage racks......

Don't know anything about the quality of the kit but I have been tempted many times.  To me meets the criteria of large scale and cheap.

It also depends on where you live :) I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I have been selling some large scale kits at very fair pricing. 

just put BMF on everything

I'd take a look down the toy isle of a superstore. There are lots of large scale R/C stuff that can be modified into a decent looking shelf item (or decent looking r/c!)

I agree with the others...

define large? define cheap? Is anything over 1/24 considered large? Are you into trucks, street cars, racing?

All of this will allow your forum friends in providing valuable answers to you. 

To get an idea of costs, look on ebay under toys and hobbies, then choose 1/16 or 1/12, or? Once you are there filter it down to automotive models...

Once you have an idea of what you want, ask the forum members or sponsors where or how to get them.

Hope this helps...

I just found a 1/12 Fiat Dragster/Cabriolet kit from Lindberg at Ollie's for $19.99. The kit # is 73043 with a date on the box saying 2007. It looks like a nice kit with real coil springs plug wires and brake lines. I'll post a picture of it as soon as I get a chance.

Okay ;

 Let's clear this up . What do you mean by cheap ? and what large scale are you referring to ? I run across some old Lindberg kits once in a while .A Big " T " type and a Large Semi-Futuristic Roadster-Coupe .

 They appear to be larger than 1/16 Maybe 1/8 . Working suspension etc . Prices , Well  for me , 200.00 to 350.00 would be in line with their age and scarcity . That's why I haven't tried to find any !
