Ur-Q ... buyer's market or seller's market?
It appears my comments mocking the $16k asking price for an '83 Ur-Q stuck
more than a few nerves among the Q-list membership ... to a man, they contend
that the prices of these cars have been increasing steadily over the past two
years and that $16k isn't so far-fetched as it once was (or still is, as I
happen to believe.)
As I'm sure everyone knows, it's hard to get reliable information about the
sales prices of these cars and condition can account for a big difference in
the price paid for one car versus another. Still, I'm curious: Does today's
Ur-Q market favor the buyer (low and/or stable prices, lots of supply) or the
seller (high and/or increasing prices, cars in short supply)?
Lastly, one person took me to task for not doing my part to talk these cars
up more favorably, like there's a Ponzi scheme going on that I'm somehow
ruining. Has the Q-list -- or (gasp!!) my comments -- become so influential
of late that the market for Ur-Qs can be materially affected by the
discussions that take place in this forum?
Just curious what other people think...
