going to go to auction

i decided to put it on an auction with a reserve. i think i might do better than 12-14k. at that price, i would put it in storage for a couple years, and then auction it off, as so many kappa cars are not going to be collector cars.... man i am torn as to selling, even if i take it out a couple sundays a month.... and i ordered mine mid 2005 after i saw the original opel that they were modeling the kappa cars on... waited nine months until the largest saturn dealer then was able to deliver....

we'll see. i hope to get at least 22k....

I'm not trying to be rude or offensive here, but do you for whatever reason think the fact it's one of the first 100 makes it more valuable?

I hope you get that $22K for your car, cause then I would value my '08 RL Coupe with 10K miles and $20K in upgrades at $75-100K!!!

Skybuy, here is a nice unit in Scottsdale, AZ on Craigslist as 'sale by owner', but I understand it is at Van Chevrolet, Scottsdale. It has upgrades and the photo of the odometer shows 2,052 miles (no, that's not a typo, but I have NOT personally viewed the car). I've seen that listing at $18k and now at $25k, so I am not sure what the dealer is up to. Go to this link for more details:

Umm there might be one coupe out there... somewhere...

May be some day some pictures will get posted?

But I'm sure you wouldn't like it anyway, MM

I agree. When it comes to this kind of thing remember that Pricing in Microeconomic basically says that the worth of something is determined in the marketplace as what a rational buyer will pay for it - the value is not in any way determined by the emotions of the seller...If your decision to buy is based upon wanting to own it for its own sake then you pay/bid $xx,xxx. If your decision to buy is based upon wanting to make money in the future then you pay/bid $yy,yyy. These are different prices with different expectations at the future date - where the seller is at the moment. I bought my Redline because I love the car and am proud and happy to own and drive it. The way the market for this vehicle works is out of my control. I'll deal with it when the time comes - hoping all the while that it doesn't...A Great Xmas to All...counting the days to get back into it and tear up corners!!!!! Critter

Ford : Mustang 1964 1/2 in Ford | eBay Motors


One of the "first hundred Mustangs". Doesn't seem to do much to increase the value of it either.

It's not all original...

Having said that I do agree. I really don't think having one of the first 100 makes any vehicle any more valuable. Having 1 of only 100 made does though. Our cars will hold some collectible value someday. We probably won't be in the sold for more than we paid for it (unless you're talking before inflation), but it'll be worth more than a similar condition Miata in 2030.

Restated, but the most important thing to remember in the collectable market: Something is only worth what someone actually pays for it. If the buyer wants it bad enough they'll pay whatever you ask.

Just look at classic car prices just before the economy tanked. You had a bunch of foolish dot com millionaires paying waaay more than (admittedly cool) cars were worth. It's all supply and demand. Also, remember car collectors are a finicky bunch. For highest value the car has to be factory original. No aftermatket mods, dealer option/installed stuff is usually acceptable, but they really want your car to match the build sheet.

You do get bragging rights though. I wish my car was one of the first one thousand...although GM did not do anything for the first one thousand as they did for the Solstice owners...

By the way, for all the newbees...we did get a golden key that unlocked the passenger door only...I believe it encompassed the first two thousand owners only...it did not start the ignition.

A Lady ask me to sell my SKY Redline to Her for
$68,000.00 last spring. I said no thanks.
JohnRR Wife is selling Her Redline for $25,000.00
This R/L is a 09 se. The car is a Winner if you
like show cars.
JohnRR & I did all the work on this R/L.
We are now rebuilding a old Vette 73.

I know you've put a lot into your car, but I'd have a hard time not taking that deal and buying TWO RL's. The only thing better than 1 Sky is 2!

If you saw the Wolf you would know why.
I don't have a lot in it. But everything that is in Her
is 100% inc the art work.

Skybuy the best to you.
