It doesn't help prices any when shows like Fast and Loud have the GasMonkey Garage paying around $4 grand for a rusted out 2nd gen Formula, then selling the same thing for around $7 grand just because they got it to run.
I am not getting along with Craigslist very well, either. I've tried to sell some stuff there, but 90% of the time it is a waste of my time with the no shows or failure to follow thru. Slowly but surely, the prices have gotten out of hand for stuff we can find, too. There is a guy posting in my local craigslist wanting $4,500 for a worn out turbo T/A because it runs and drives...oh did I mention it leaks fluids like a siv? Interior is shot and needs some body work too. Found someone else selling a 78 T/A that looks like it has been put to pasture for a decade or so for $2,500...partially dissasembled, drivetrain removed car needing total resto.
eBay isn't that great as it once was for me...prices have bloated for most of the parts I really need, and once I tap in the ever increasing cost of shipping, it kinda is disenheartening. When I used to sell on eBay, there were times what I sold was cheaper than the shipping! I had even made the mistake of putting a few "free shipping" perks on a few parts, and by the time I was done paying for shipping I ended up in the negative. One of the last times I bought some parts off eBay for a Trans Am I was rebuilding I got ripped off...bought a pair of supposedly perfect 403 exhaust manifolds that showed up with obvious cracks(exhaust soot stained around the cracks) and seller sent me wrong crank pulleys...and would not respond back to me. I ended up getting the manifolds I already had welded.
Being I'm still stuck with two extra 2nd gens, I am going to be limited to what I buy at the swap meet
