Fyi .... 2 Barn Find 2002's In Eugene, Or

Recommended Posts

They've been known to do some smoking down there in Eugene, and I think they're doing plenty of it here... I'd say 300 a car is easily fair....

 

I know this board is quick to gawk at prices we see on the internet for cars, and in most cases sellers are usually asking a bit more than they should which makes them easy targets. But are you saying that for two shells and a complete motor that $300 is all you would pay? 

 

I guess maybe I feel like I have been robbed for spending that amount on a nose clip and fender alone. Considering that, I would gladly pick those two cars up for the asking price. 

 

Maybe thats who these sellers are targeting—idiots like myself? 

 

If you try to remove yourself from your long history of working with these cars and most likely some of the amazing deals you have experienced owning them and buying them. Stepping into 2014 — Is it really that laughable of a deal? 

I'm only asking as my experience is fairly limited.

 

If I was in the '02 market today and wanted to purchase another one for the same condition I bought it in 2008, I don't think I could swing the cash in a short 6 years later. What was $1,500 in 2008 is easily $4,500–$6,000 on an equal classifieds hunt today. (in CA anyway)

 

Would you disagree?

I know at least up here, for a rusty shell of unknown condition, they're not going for much. Ive only been in the 02 game for 5 years and since have bought a 74 in 2011 for 200 bucks, a 69 & 73 for 500 each with good parts in 2013, and a 75 for 150 bucks with no motor in 2014. 

 

These cars with 20 years outside in Oregon in a field means that the bottoms have rotted out. Been there, done that. Cut up a 73 that was perfect from the rockers up, but the bottom was gone. They are also missing parts, and many of the parts are of low quality due to weathering. 

 

Also, dont forget, with most cars, the sum of its parts is greater than the car alone.

 

But I'll be honest, yes the prices of good cars are going up, but bad/parts cars arent going up nearly as much and neither are used parts prices. But in the end, it all comes down to what someone will pay for the things.

A '70 automatic is a pretty rare beast.  Very few automatics were sold from the time they were introduced in mid 1969 until about 1972...wonder what the VIN is; bet it's below 2532000...

You got it right on! I've been looking for one....I'm tempted to take the automatic home. Am I nuts?!?!
