When gas started getting expensive in the mid 2000's, those Metros actually got expensive and hard to find. Pretty sure most of them are gone, now.

A customer I did a Mustang GT for 7 years ago drives one to work everyday. It's red with a blue fender and white hood. He loves that car. He just leaves for work 15 minutes early. The only thing he can pass is a gas station :)

VW's used to be cheap throwaway cars that were on every corner. People chopped them into Baja Bugs and generally trashed them, didn't think anything of it. I even got the "what's that doing here?" looks when I used to take my '64 Bug to shows and cruise ins back in the early 2000s. Now nice ones are scarce and pre- 67 cars are regularly bringing 30K+ at auctions, early deluxe busses are 70-300K.

It's the same way now with Geos and Festivas. People have been chopping and abusing them ever since they dropped down to $300 beaters, and they still are in some places that haven't figured out that they're sought after now. Just yesterday someone posted in the Festiva Facebook group that they're fitting 29" off road tires by hacking out the fenders and quarters... was a pretty straight, rust free car before he butchered it. A really clean Festiva sold almost as soon as it was listed at 7k on ebay a couple of weeks ago, and a rusty one was bid up to $3250 last week before the auction ended early, I guess a better deal was made off ebay.

Yeah I dont know about that website. I mean, a car is worth what someone will pay, but one guy with a bunch of money who doesn't know what they are doing doesn't dictate the market.


A 283 auto 64 conv just sold for 83. I find that funny

63 conv older restoration sold for 71.

A 61 conv (nice car btw) sold for 96k

I've been messing with these impalas for a while now and 283 automatic cars are not worth these prices. I'm sorry. Different story if it's a 4spd 409 with ac and cruise control.

Impalas are not rare cars. They just have a bunch of moldings and accessories that cost a bunch of money. Good job to the sellers.

If I wasn't already deep into other projects . . .
VIN tag is probably worth current bid, if it is true 138 car.and you get the rest of the car as a bonus.


Here is a funny joke

GM produced 5,000 SS Big Block Chevelles in 1967.
50,000 of them have survived!
