Yet it makes perfect sense to sell a NOS shaker hood for $3,000?

Supply and demand is the name of the game.

Not the first time that limited production cars were marked up and it will not be the last until they are still sitting waiting for a buyer.

Understood, but they aren't making NOS shaker hoods anymore.
What about paying several million for a hemi cuda that orig cost 4k?
I paid $3500 for a set of NOS code m28 1971 challenger wide chrome surround moldings-
the 3 piece set that goes on the front hood & down the 2 front quarters.
They were orig a $58 option.
NOS is expensive b/c each time one is sold, the NOS supply dwindles down

But the demon deal is flat out rape by the dodge dealers.

This is a car not meant for daily street use.
it will always be a low production. They will never make them in the 5 digits.

NOS Shaker hoods=low production
Demons-= low production

When I worked for CPDJ, they started selling PT Cruisers for 6-10 grand over with ease.

Yeah the whole thing sucks and I agree it is disreputable but that kind of practice exists everywhere. Dodge has no reason to stop it. They want people to go into a buying frenzy over their products.

It's very possible that you can wait two years and pick up a nice used one with low mileage at less than msrp.  That has happened with many other hot new cars out there over the years. Let some other sucker take the massive loss. I could be wrong on this but I doubt it. Every few years, there is some unbelievably amazing car that outdoes everything before it.

Years back, Buick offered their Grand National and it was a cool and powerful car compared to the other stuff out there at the time. I remember having the same complaint as you about dealers adding 10k plus markups which put it out of reach of the average guy. Those cars were gobbled up by collectors and now all these years later, they are being removed from their bubble wrap and sold at auctions for very low prices.

I can only think of a few limited run production hot cars that went up in value versus down.

I remember when Mazda dealers were doing this with the Miata when it first came out.  I think they were adding around $10000 to $15000 onto the MSRP Price at the time.
