Default Am I the only one that thinks some of the prices are to high

I no there are some real nice cars on here and some are worth what they are asking .But just because its a 67-69 camaro or 66-72 nova that by its self dont make worth alot .If more of the parts are in boxes than on the car.I mean this is just what I think a car is only worth what the next person will give for it.I no alot of people are out of work but dont try to get a years pay out of a basket case.

I wonder how many people are actually selling their cars. Maybe there should be a sold section on Racingjunk so everyone can see what was sold and for how much :roll:

I have my cars forsale and there is a lot of views but not one call. I think my prices are very fair but maybe everyone is just waiting to see what the economy is going to do.

mopars right, just go to the next one, but you might be surprised if
you make an offer, on a pro-street 69 orange nova, it was beautiful,
talk the guy down from 16k to 12k cash, well the guy forgot to
mention that he had no title and drove it w/o tags, well, it
was too much hassel to get another title so i passed. well the guy
put the car back on rj and this time he put, "strip only", the
car was nice, but i want to drive it to the car meet once in
a while and tow to the drags, good luck :wink:

I mess with street car and drag cars but the only way im going to pay 10K or more for a roller is if its new . The avarge drag car if it has been run much its tore up.And the 60-73 street cars if the only panel on them that came from the factory is the roof its junk to me because not just anybody can do that much work right.

i just saw a 81 c10 pickup for 15,000. i would say alot of stuff on rj are over priced. maybe people are just trying to sell for enough to catch up on late payments? i have seen some what i think are really good prices

Over half the posters on RJ are just trying to see if they get a bite on the ad they post. Not that they want to sell it but would for the right price. The price some put on cars is what they "wish" to get and they wait and see 48% of that 50% dont get a bite so they keep posting. :lol:
