TV shows destroyed the hobby
I cant buy, fix up and flip cars like I could 10-15 years ago. Every diamond in the rough is now worth diamonds to every Tom, Dick and Harry out there

Part of it is the buyer. I made the mistake of listing mine on here once for close to what I thought it was worth. I had no offers that approached 1/3 of the asking. I told the last guy that if he could find a 8 second 1/4 mile ride for 5 grand, I would give them a finders fee...

IF I ever list it again, I will ask a really high price as well, lol...

I found a 1969 Dodge Dart on here for $25.000. Drove 5 1/2 hour's when i got there it was rough not what was pictured. He said the car was worth what he was asking. He said he had saw car's like his go for more on Barrett-Jackson. Total waste of my time. I offered him 15.000 he said no.

I think i have these prices figured out! Let's try this. The wife say's honey you are going to sell that [Race,Pro Street Etc] It is costing too much to keep up! A week later she ask did you sell the car yet? He replies not yet i have it on Racing Junk for sale not telling her he has it is 3 time's the amount it is worth!!! What you think? Oh by the way Hello out there!!!

I agree on a few like that Mark but the rest of it is just TV and BJ Auctions, they ruined it for the small time guys...
