Default prices

i cant get over some prices these guys are putting on their cars. 30 grand for a nova come on i have a nova and yes i would break my neck to deliver it for 30 grand. is there really that many people with to much money in the world for a guy to think he's going to get that kind of money for a car? i also realize just how fast money funnel's into a project but seems to me there is a point that you know you have more in than you will ever get out of it. dont get me wrong i love old cars and pro street cars seems its going to be hard to keep them alive with crazy prices everybody wants. this is the real world not barret jackson daily.

If the car is built correctly with quality parts then the market will support a substantial price, but crap builds with bargain basement parts have no business asking some of these prices.
You have to get past the idea of it being a "Nova" or a "Camaro," or? For the same reason we/they build some of these "off the deep end" builds, it's pure emotion, nothing more, nothing less. It's that same emotion that drives someone to spend big bucks on buying a car that others would never dream of spending. 30k to some is nothing, to others it's a lifetime of work.

yeah i dont make that kind of money. i do understand the passion if i had had the cash i would put mad money in my ride i just cant. its just alot of what i have seen have been more upper teen's cars asking 30's or more. i have to say your car if you still have it is mind blowing i love it. most i have seen are nowhere neer what your car is. i saw a 72 that was just a plain pro street car and asking 30k. i have a 69 just like it new body panels paint and all i know its not a 30k car. anyway i just thought there were alot that are over priced.
