Has anyone besides me noticed that there seem to be a lot less 65-68 Fastback projects for sale on all sites including Ebay and Craig's list?
Asking and getting being two different things. It seems like half the cars are priced way over market value and the other half are pushing it. It likely all works out for less to considerably less when the deals are done, but I have to respect the fact that you don’t get what you don’t ask for.But I have noticed the lack of cars and now even the coupes around here are asking crazy prices for them.
The problem, to quote my mechanic, is that the last 10% is done in a hurry and sloppy. I made sure the body of my car was perfect before I purchased it. But half the screws holding in my interior were either missing or not tightened. Quite a few things were done in a "get it done" way. When you can't drive a car before purchase (at an auction) you take your chances so you check what you can.I for sure see a lot fewer half done projects. Seems 5-10 years ago they were just as many of those as untouched project cars. Either people have more realistic cost expectations or they get to the "I'm gonna finish it not matter what or how long it takes" attitude.
