Exceptions not rules.  In the case of buying low, this is a situation of
rules, not exception.  No one, NO ONE, on these lists is going to pay 1500
over book value (pick any book) for 91 200tq

Blue book from any company is no more then a plain guide.  A usually
inaccurate guide.  U get what people are willing to pay for it.  I have
NEVER bought or sold a car at anywhere near blue book.  Thankfully, I bought
WELL below and sold well above.  Case and point:  1986 F250 long bed
extended cab 4X4 with a manny tranny and a 460.  Blue book retail was near
6000$$ when I bought it.  It did not have high miles or anything wrong with
it.  I bought it for $2200.00 with tax.  Down the street from me there is a
1988 VW Westfalia with 21K orginial miles.  5 months ago they were at
12.5K$$.  They can't sell it today at $9.5K.  I checked book on it a month
or two ago.  If I remember right, it was around 12K$$.  The local market is
the only fair gauge IMO.  The blue books offer a marginal start and finish
