    Everything sells on there, when they lowball you all the time.
    you have to remember, the a___ end fell out of the Second hand Car Market when they started to import the Korean Cars,
    and most of the cheap cars are s____ heaps,
    and people don't care for them, and some people just a want s___ box to run around in,
    so they buy it cheap as, get a dodgy Roadworthy, have an accident, and claim on insurance,
    or
    they drive a cheap car around, and risky other people lives, and don't care about other people property,
    ie: open the doors on other peoples cars that they take pride in.

    Just the other day, I went to the supermarket after I washed and polished my VY,
    Came out and notice a door dent in the passengers door just under the mirror,
    I know is wasn't there before shopping, because I had washed it, waxed it, and also Buffed it with a microfiber buffing pad,
    So I know every little scratch, [paint] patch and dent on it.
    Being it was the end of school holidays,
    so probably some little s___t head kid flung his door open, and rushed to get out, and/or in their car.
    I because there wasn't a car to bee seen next to mine,
    so they either probably just called in to get something quick, or they moved their car after the incident.

    There's a moral to that story........................don't take a "good car" to the supermarket, take a s____heap.

    But really some of the ridiculous prices on CS are truly to be laughed at. Here are just 3 and as such let the membership be the judge I guess.

    And the ridiculing they'll get as well ;);)


    For "greenacc"

    The VS SL/R 5000 was a car built in a very small limited run (120 of) as a tribute to the Torana version and some particular milestone of 20 years on. It's probably the biggest kept secret that's come out of a Holden Dealership and thus why there's bugger all info out there about it in the first instance.

    OMG !!!!! and it's only a V6 WTF ??

    it's never been driven in the rain, so it's never been washed either I guess ??

    Quick get it onto Carsales as their reputation will slipping.

    I put my HQ Monaro on Carsales with no photos, just a general description of condition, with my details for full history info and photos.
    Heaps of enquiries, usually to offer a ridiculous low price and to tell me that it was worth nothing. Some were downright insulting in their attitude.
    Eventually sold it word-of-mouth locally for price I was after.

    At the moment, anything with a non-imported Holden badge is being advertised at a 20% premium as a gold plated investment opportunity

    I bought the Heron White VX Acclaim Series II that is in my post "It's Alive" in the showcase on Carsales. I negotiated with the owner and got a good price and they even delivered it for me. By the way, when the insurance wrote it off after the sump incident, they paid me out $1000 more than I paid for it two years ago. :)

    I guess that's why insurance premiums are so high.

    VS3 ute
    That ute has been for sale for quite a while. Um, who's willing to believe a V8 ute with only 12,930 km????

    Basically they're all dreamers just trying it on hoping to find a bunny that's just got way too much money to burn.

    Sadly VS isn't at that stage as yet as they still are at the bottom of the cash value cycle.

    It's probably 112,930 Km's and had a bit of trickery done to it, and with all that extra bling added to it why wouldn't the owner drive it, now if it was still totally original then you could nearly believe it with a bit of BS story spun.

    I was told by an ex Gm employee that when they came down on the cars being built to meet homologation requirements for racing and selling them to Joe Public that GM had a bunch of the A9X L34 engines sitting around with nowhere to put them. Rather than a tribute car perhaps these 120 cars are where they finally put them.
