8 grand for the least desirable valiant ever made. IMO, that's a 1500 dollar car.

Why do people think that because the car is old that it's worth something?

 

 

I saw a poverty-spec Dart whose owner was trying to move for $18k!

 

It went down to 15k, then to 10, then to 7.5, now it's sitting around at 5 and still nobody wants it.

4 door cars generally sell lower. 6 cylinder cars generally sell lower. Auto cars generally sell lower. It's one saving grace is it is still an old Mopar, so someone will want it. We picked up a similar valiant a few years back. Picked it up for 300. Wrote for sale and a phone number on the window, and sold it for $650 before we even got out of town with it.

Do you think he'd be willing to sell it to me for that much?...

Lol, the dude has no idea he has a M60 under the hood and not the M62 (4.4) as he claims. I had one E38 manual 6gears, 7 years ago. smile.gif

 

 

This is better. It states it it needs some rust treatment and paint overhaul but you get ac-schnitzers and original 195k kms.

 

tamto w polsce to jakis straszny kasztan

Maybe there actually is an M62 engine in the car, it's rated at 309hp. You can see the dyno result there.

I dont have any pictures or data about the car i saw for sale because it was most likely sold already, but there was an Audi V8 Lang for sale. God it was long. All black outside and interior wise too. I dont know how rare that car is because i havent searched any data about it yet.

It's not measurably harder to bump an M60B40 up to ~300bhp than it is a M62B44. There's no difference in power output between them and the earlier engine actually has a higher specific output.

The legality of it is probably a bit questionable.

This car has a Texas title and registered as 2005 Volkswagen 4D.

 

So you're most likely correct.

It's like the Skylines registered as 240SX's, and the problems with them is pretty well documented.

W221 S-Class with... CLOTH SEATS?!

Probably doesn't want to burn his ass come summer.

I'm really not that fussed with leather. I'd much rather have Alcantara. Still, strange to see a current S without it.

Holy sh*t, a W221 S-Class with... CLOTH SEATS?!

I actually prefer cloth. I've got leather in my Jeep, and they get HOT in Summer. Hot leather seats + shorts = no fun. The only thing I like about leather is it's easier to keep clean.

Cloth always seems like it holds in AIDS and all the nastyness of past generations. yuck.

 

 

I sometimes drive without a shirt on really hot days and never stick to my leather. I think that's just an american leather thing.

Possibly an airport car of some sorts (the mileage would match that theory), much easier to handle cloth that doesn't tear apart when loads of people hop on hop off.

Anyone for a 4.3 TVR Power converted T350C?

Good interior colour, right exterior, 430BHP upgrade with warranty still left, best looking modern TVR by far, and a great list of upgrades-

 

> Nitron coilovers

> PowerSports exhuast

> AP Racing clutch

> Decent stereo

 

Under £25k seems like good VFM to me.

There's this car in my street that I've admired for some time now. I see it driving around often, meaning it probably still runs well. It's a Mazda Capella (RX2), a 70's model I'm guessing. Since I've never walked up to it and seen what the interior looks like, I have no clue if it's been damaged or not; rust is my main concern, really. The left door of the car looks like it's been patched and sanded, there's a patch on the side. Now that's the only damage I know the vehicle has/had.

 

I'm thinking of saving up to buy it sometime in the near future. I don't want to approach the owner if I don't know how much it'd be worth if he sold it. I wouldn't say it's a classic, and it probably has been used it's entire life AND it does has small damage, I'd say value would be dropped a little because of that. What price range would it be in if he sold it?

Today I saw a brand new Subaru BRZ parked outside the dealer for £22k, recently down from £24k. If I had a job I'd buy that in a heartbeat....

I saw a 1988 Daihatsu Charade on the side of the road with a For Sale sign. They want $5,000! Good luck with that, lol.

 

Similar to this, but white:
