Agreed 100%... as an enthusiast, I like getting a deal. And enthusiasts know what goes wrong and what they'll need to do to the car... which brings down the price if those things need to be done. But for a flawless car, anybody would pay more.rspi wrote: ↑Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:22 amHmmm, most of these cars sell between $1200 - $1500 in decent running condition. If it's spotless, $2500. So take $2500 and deduct anything that needs to be done. Need tire, deduct $400. Need a dash pad, take off another $150. Has a little body damage, take off another $300.
My experience is that the general public pays a lot more than enthusiast do. Ask me how I know. lol
These cars really aren't worth much... my cousin picked up a really nice '99 S70 N/A for $500 a couple months ago. Know what it needed? Cam seals. Otherwise, 162k miles, records, great shape, and it runs like a top. The previous owner took great care of the car. New genuine Volvo timing belt, ETM and all! But honestly, it's probably a $2,000 car simply because of all the records and the condition.
