Re: Good deal ($) for an '82 coupe gt?

-- [ From: Huw Powell * EMC.Ver #3.1a ] --

>I have ran across a guy who has an '82 coupe gt he would like to sell. he
was hoping to get between $1500 and $1800 for the car.  Is this reasonable? 
He has a nice stereo 
I was thinking the car may be more like $700.  Any help?

1500-1800 seems a bit ridiculous unless the thing is in mint condition and
say under 150k miles.  "nice stereos" don't increase the value of the car
unless they are exactly what you want - and they can mean a bunch of hacking
went on under the dashboard and for speaker holes, which you will someday
have to deal with.

I paid 2300 for my 82 coupe 3-1/2 years ago, and it looked NEW (140 k miles)
.  I mean it really did.  Also the engine was clean, no rust or cruddy

My insurance pegged it at about 1200 last fall when I drowned it.  hth

PS if it's an 82 it isn't "really" a GT, is it?  I thought that nomenclature
came into use a couple of years later...
