eBay prices

I see a full set of stainless steel moulds for the HQ coupe sold on eBay for $4000. Who would have thought .Iremember when I bought my damaged coupe less motor and front panels in 1988 for the value of the doors and the windscreen then. $250.

Hi All

things have come a long way, bought my glamour HQ LS 253 coupe in 1982 for $1500, in 1981 bought a E55 charger $1500 as well, a week later the car yard had one of those red and white sportman $1500 as well and a glamour ( like 30k on the clock ), but i was earning about 12k PA back then

In 1982 i wanted to learn manual so i bought a red VH charger 265 that had run out of rego and looked like it was abandoned, i left a note and got a call later that day, the owner got his GF pregnant and skiped to the country, so his dad handed in the plates for cash, bought the car for $400, gave it a wash and over the pits, they told me it failed on bald tyres and oil leaks - but the guy smiled and said its rust free and signed the papers - woo hoo

now i recall when i bought my HQ GTS roller ( missing engine box and crash pad ) for $1500, in 2002 everyone told me i was crazy, then my son wanted one and ended up buying a HJ monaro GTS with rod sticking out of the block for $1100 ( but it had some rust round front screen )

I have learned a car is at its cheapest when its @ 15 yo, so i guess a 1998-2000 decent car matches and they can be found for under $2k glamours, seen some nice VN VP statesman at that price

One of my first post here was about the price of EH or HR headlight rims, the idea was if they go to high people drop the project as its not worth while - look at old jags and MG's

regards
george
