i was thinking about this also. it's the same here in seattle. i have been looking for a commuter and was thinking about an 92-95 hatch or coupe. but the fuckers go for $3500-$5000 for a bone stock car eg. i figured fuck it and started looking across the country for a 97-98 240sx. they are only about $5-6k for a newer/better car. people are insane. but then again, i have sold some cars for more than they were worth, simply because i knew someone would pay it eventually. when i need to sell something or it isn't mint, i sell it for cheap just to get it off the lot.
