    How much did they want for it? I can't read the for sale sign. Looks nice

    Not surprising on the asking price as it seems that everybody thinks these cars will be the next hot seller and want to cash in before the realization kicks in. Many of the cars that have the big dollar asking price are actually good deals if you compare what was spent to get them to the stage they are at but most peoples pockets are just not that deep and the cars have not drawn that much respect.

    No disrespect meant to those trying to sell their car and it seems as though there are many on the market at the moment

    I agree 100% Yellow75, and anyone who has ever properly restored a classic car knows how much time and money it takes. I have elected to purchase certain cars fully restored as opposed to restoring them myself knowing full well it is the most cost effective approach. I have a 61 Buick Invicta bubbletop that would have been very difficult to find parts, trim, and chrome pieces for and there just aren't reproduction parts out there. Original maverick parts are pretty readily available at this point and reasonably priced.

    That car was for sale last year at CTC. Seems the price has gone up a couple grand. He wasn't really friendly when I tried to talk to him. I didn't even attempt this year.

    I understand what it takes to restore a automobile and if it’s a rare desirable one I know they can command top $$.
    But IMHO just because a individual dumps a excessive amount of $$$ into a rusty piece of junk does not make it worth the asking price.

    My apologies to the OP for the derail of this thread.

    Ever notice a car with a for sale sign garners more attention than the same car would without the for sale sign?

    Many times I have seen cars for sale at shows and cruise-ins with unrealistic price tags. The cars really are not for sale.

    Just my observation.

    Another factor is what part of the country the car is located in, it appears that cars in the eastern area are demanding more money than the western area but the west is catching up now (we are a little slow out here) . LOL May be partially due to population and wage scale (more better paying jobs in the east) enabling builders to invest more money into cars build .

    Internet has been a big help in getting the prices up there as well, people see what others are asking for their cars and figure that their car is as nice or nicer than the one they saw listed but what they fail to see is that the cars they have been looking at have been listed for quite some time and have not sold. Bottom line is dont build one of these and expect to get near the return for the dollars you spent, drive it and enjoy it
