I think DNA and Tribute are onto winners with their respective products. Nobody is treading on each others toes ( at the moment ) and demand is strong. Unlike the 80's when the Cobra's came out , there are fewer people with the skills to build but more with money to spend so its a win win situation.
Like with Cobras, the number of people prepared to pay over 40k is limited. In a year or two, there will be plenty of DNAs available for 20k or so if things follow the usual route. Tributes will be for enthusiasts, not "collectors" and there will be a lot more of them. The guy churning out DNAs knows the window may not be open for long. Good luck to him.
