So, I found this, and don't quite know what is going on. I can't quite wrap my mind around the asking price either. If I wanted to take on a project to turn this back into an X90, (I don't) I'd probably not think this is worth more than $500 if it runs otherwise.

If it is any consolation, the seller will be out the listing fee, and still have that abomination in his yard.

Doesn't look to be worth any less than when it was a 4-wheel version. Since the first time I ever clapped eyes on one, I have been completely baffled by the existence of the X90. Nothing even came close to being so totally useless until Nissan decided to make a convertible Murano.

I was thinking it was from a live performance of How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

The Whos could play a mean game of Zoo Zilla Ka Zay on that thing.

The awful thing is....

I've previously had thoughts enough to prompt me to research modifying an X90 as well as a 1st gen Sportage for paved shenanigans.

Not really. We're parting three of them right now. While the supply of X90 parts is low, the demand is even lower.

You're all getting complicated. Just throw some forged slugs and sticks in the stock motor, then boost it to the moon.

I'm all for motor swaps, but... meh.
