Has anyone been watching what geo metro's have been going for on ebay? I think the highest I've seen is 7300$, granted it had low miles but still this is crazy.. it's like 5-7x the price on kbb. Thankfully I bought my 95 vx 8 months ago for 3200! These prices are starting to get into the range of what used insights with over 120k miles were going for a few months ago.
I've noticed it more with Metros than CRX's. A clean CRX has gone up about 30-40% in price, whereas metros have gone up almost an order of magnitude.
I was looking at getting a metro last year when gas was $2.90 and I had a 90 mile round trip for my job. Back then you could get a decent running metro for under a grand. On the other hand CRX's are a tuning car and they have always been around $1500-2500 for a running example. CRX's were only produced until 91, and the metro was produced many years after that, so I think most people will go for a newer metro, thus the higher pricing.
my guess is that it will go down in early june and then start back up from late june till late august, then drop off through october. But the long range trend will always be up.
Just a guess. Maybe its time to purchase an electric bicycle and charge it with solar.
Hmmm....went to the Cadillac dealer the other day to order a part for my '83 Eldorado. Had two (count 'em!) salesmen descend upon me and my $200 '91 Metro offering me 10 grand trade for anything I wanted! Guess times must be tough out there!
