Who knows how this plays out, but as an old guy it seems much more unreasonable than run ups in the past.
Perhaps this is the beginning of an inflationary run where a $1000 at today's exorbitant price is nothing 18 months out because everything else is moving that direction too.
It also seems that in today's world people seem to think that because they put X amount of dollars into something that it equates as being worth that much more than if they hadn't of spent the extra dollars on it.
Expectations are askew and not necessarily in tune with reality.
Seattle area Craigslist has a lot of FSBs flirting with the 10k mark even though most are 5 or 6k rigs. Several of them have been for sale for years at those prices.
Serious seller?? or dope smoker?? (the song: "why do you think they call it dope" comes to mind) or maybe they bought and heaven forbid, financed it and now looking to sell with a high bank note payoff...good luck on that....
Look at the explosion in value of sports memorabilia...going the same way as the housing market. With populations increasing basically exponentially everywhere, and markets like China suddenly having huge disposable income bases, there are more buyers than ever before for all sorts of stuff. IMO, that's what's driving these big price spikes in a lot of cases. And if I'm right, corrections will be subtle, not crashes.
I have a spare C6 in the '79 parts rig. Hmmm... 56k miles? How do you blow a trans out in 56k miles on a stock lookin' rig, much less a C6? My old '89 had AOD. Interior looks fine. Appears well used but not abused... in pics. Has another Bronco to work on... doesn't need two but still looking to possibly trade for another project. Interesting.
