    I'm over 60 years old and involved in the car hobby all my life.
    I once test drove a 1969 camaro copo 427 for sale at $1600 and tuned it down (1976)
    I once rented a house in Vancouver (Lillooet St) that they couldn't sell for 45.000 (1979)
    I bought a running 73 te-27 Corolla 5 speed with factory tach gauges and am-fm 8 track for $65.00 (1999)
    Do I stand by now and ridicule the people that pay far more for these items now? NO
    An increase in prices means an increase in interest and a increase in value.
    If you continue to lament the old days you'll wind up stuck in the old days.
    Value your items as worth nothing and they will remain,worth nothing.

    Will assume this is automatic? If it was a hatch maybe, but unfortunately coupes don't have the same effect on a buyers wallet.

    I should have put a better description.The car is a factory 5 speed.I bought it to build a 3tc powered drag car,took it all apart and said this car is too nice,I can't do it!Every bolt comes out of it like butter.So I picked up another one (86 Sr-5 )from Virginia,I can't stand rust.It had a mint black interior,this cars interior was blue,so I completely reassembled this car.I worked as a stereo installer,glass and trim and at Toyota itself for 16 years so its done right .Every bolt was oiled,rustproofed,torqued and adjusted as necessary.The interior was completely cleaned and treated with all the correct screws and clips in all the right places.Its converted to manual steering,has a great cd player and stereo,new door hinges,Click image for larger version.

ID:	15579new timing belt,and clutch,OBX type exhaust.The paint is faded but I think it looks great with original patina,it does have a few door dings and scrapes.I've had it 8 years and it drives great but picked up a old ladies Tercel that I drive also.Only reason for selling is I want room in the shop for my other project and the driveway is full!!Its never seen a snowflake since I got it.I'll include some other pictures and cars.

    True. Things are worth what people are willing to pay for them, not what you would like them to cost.

    They still are.These are 30 year old classic cars,not needing e-tests and platable as historic.One of the largest auto makers in the worlds most revered cars not just in North America but around the world.So much so they made a remake of the model,few cars get this distinction.Look on Kijiji in any area,go to classic cars highest priced and scroll down to $7000 or less,see what you get especially running and rust free.The domestic guys are aging,the import guys are younger,slowly but surely a shift will happen and you'll say "remember when"

    there's really no need to justify your price, if you feel it's fair, post it and leave it up. if it's a price people are willing to pay, it'll sell. why try to convince people who wouldn't pay your price anyway? if it's too expensive, it won't sell, then lower it.

    The problem is it's an SR5 with major clear coat issues and onset rust.
