[s-cars] INSURANCE ALERT: A call to arms

Some clubs keep a database of car sales for this very reason. It needs to be
properly documented so it has credibility (ie, you can't let every Tom, Dick
and Franz entering made up sale prices on a web page), but the result would
be quite useful.

Wonder if this is something that could be built into s-cars.org. After you
register, you enter the purchase price of your car, the date, condition,
mileage, and mods.
