    I would have a problem buying that even if there was one less zero. That kind of money I can get the truck repainted every two years depending on how long that anodized container of wax lasts. I wonder how many of those they really sell. Holy shit

    Well... at least it qualifies for free shipping. What a joke. That makes me want to never buy a Chemical Guys product again.

    Wow! for that price:
    Does it give you a nice Buzz when using?

    Does it make members of the opposite sex strip their clothes and want to go for a ride?

    I gotta admit, the only thing that I really like from them has been their microfiber towels. I have bought a wide range of microfiber cloths over the years from different manufacturers and their's is the best by far. I bought them on sale and will do it again when another sale comes up.

    https://www.chemicalguys.com/Project_J97_Paste_Wax_p/n_002.htm

    They tell us why we should buy it...

    Why Buy This Product?
    • Ultra-refined carnauba paste wax for shimmering wet shine
    • 9 stage filtering process ensures perfect purity
    • Luxurious blend of refined Brazilian white carnauba wax and rare natural oils
    • Used on some of the the finest, rarest, and most expensive cars on Earth

    99 cent wax, $1,499 EPA approved container. Pity the fools that buy it!
    Sounds like something the Govt would buy.

    Got a belly laugh out that!

    At that price I was wondering if they at least kissed you afterwards. What a deal, free shipping included!!

    It’s probably just a marketing stunt to get attention. I’ve seen a few companies put out a ridiculously priced product that they don’t expect anyone to buy. It just draws more website traffic etc.
