Yeah auctions are a big issue, but the car market is saturated with junk that people think is worth something. Two years ago I bought a Supercharged 97 Riviera with a bad transmission for $400. I was thrilled, I figured I would have $500 or $600 into it (total of a grand) and sell it for 1500. Needless to say I have almost 3 grand into it now, and I will keep it until I get my moneys worth. Everyone in this area thinks that even though they car is broken that they can get top dollar, and a lot of idiots are paying high numbers on Craigs List. I had a chance to buy a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee yesterday, it had 150K miles on it, it needed a cat. converter, transmission had internal issues, the tires were shot, and both pinion seals were leaking. That right there is $1200 at least (my cost), I figured if I could get the car for $500 I would still have some meat left. She tells me she has done some looking and has found cars like hers selling for $2500-$3000.00, I said, I believe that if they are in good running order which yours isn't. So I asked her again how much she wanted and she says "I won't take a dime under $1500". I told her that we were worlds apart, and that I would buy it for $500, she said that it was worth "at least $1500". Sometimes these interactions remind me of Pawn Stars, how people come in and want triple the value of their items (sometimes junk).
