What the heck is going on with old car prices lately. Is it Barret Jackson syndrome or what. I've been looking for several months for what I'd basically call a retirement project car/truck. But everything I'm seeing for sale lately that is in the 5K to 10K price range is just beat up, rusty junk! I'm not interested in paying 8K for a pile of crap that needs total restoration, body panels, interiors, extensive rust repair, etc. If something nice does pop up, it's sold in a few hours. My guess is too many flippers who will jump on anything that looks like they could make a buck on. It's just been very frustrating trying to find something that wont drain my bank account just to acquire it.
