Something has changed since then for sure.
5 years ago people had lost their jobs and needed $$. had a friend around here that unloaded his for less than half what he had in it, i think it was rightg around 20k or so.

after spending nearly a year looking for a 930, just bought one a year ago in fact, i was getting frustrated at seeing a LOT of cars going to brokers and dealers picking them up for sub 30s and then jacking the price up to 40k+. i saw where a dealer picked up a 78 for 28k then listed it for 39k. also saw one listed at 29k then the broker listed the car at 39k.
i think all these hi prices have caught on. with no other cars to buy but the hi priced ones, the prices have been driven up.
i just saw an 80 with 100k on it listed for 46k. it sold but i dont know what for.
that would have been a 28k car a year ago, if that.
there was one on ebay that sold for 100k with 46k miles on it, and it needed paint/work.
i paid 36k for an 86 with 42k miles last year. maybe i got in just before the price hike.
