Sometimes I am truly dumbfounded by the pricing people put on cars. Having a finished and nice car that you think is worth $150,000 because you saw one go for that on one of those TV auctions, is sometimes no realistic, but at least a little understandable. But when you see a car like this Camaro, that needs A PILLARS, a roof skin, quarters, and probably everything else, you wonder how in the hell can someone think it is worth anything near this kind of money? Especially when you can find cars in much nicer shape for sale in the area at the same money!? It has always boggled my mind that people can even think they are worth it.
And in truth they don’t even believe it themselves. I say this, because if you read the listing for this one the seller is already telling you to keep your comments to yourself, etc. That’s because he has already hear from people, or thinks he’ll hear from people at any rate, that this thing sucks and isn’t worth half that money. And those people are RIGHT!
Here’s what the seller put in the listing.
Car price is 5500. Firm no trades, Not running, complete car, needs restoring, price is firm, do not contact me unless you have the money and want to buy it, No photo collectors, underside is good,has a 400 small block, auto transmission, not sure type, has a racing shifter. Traction bars, with aluminum wheels, I will not respond to IS IT AVAILABLE”””””””” I WILL REMOVE IT WHEN SOLD.call or text only, car is in Seguin, Tx, 30 miles east of San Antonio. #####If you are not a buyer, your comment are not needed#### I’m not concerned as to where you live, if you want it come see it and get it.
In all honesty, if this car was within an hour of home I’d go look at it and negotiate with the guy. For my own enjoyment at least. I know it sounds like a bit of a dick move, but this just isn’t worth this money in any way, shape, or form. It would cost $5,000 to get this car to not be rusty, if you did all the work yourself. And it would cost $10,000 to get it not rusty if you paid someone else that didn’t charge much.
What do you guys think of cars like this? It isn’t just this Camaro, there are a bunch of listings like this each and every week on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, etc.
