That's true but looking at a few past auctions,you can have a nice 102 for under $500.

Bingo. Apples and oranges when comparing a presumably lower quality, but 40 year newer piece of equipment with things such as warranty, emissions regulations compliance etc. I prefer the older stuff too, but it doesnt mean they are worth more in the market just cuz new stuff sucks.

Then again, a seller can ask any price he likes for his property.

   I am cleaning up a  few project around here and the other day I asked a friend what I should sell something for? or what it was worth?  His response was whatever I could get someone to pay for it was what it was worth!!!!!!! :D  Got to admit it was a good answer, I think that is allot of what you see on e-bay lately.  Guys a fishing for the most $$$$, the trouble is it is raising the prices on everything!  the next guy will see that and decide his is worth $2000 or the next buyer will think the $1000 he spent on his unrestored gt was a great investment.

   Trouble for us in the long run.

Pricing?  I've always thought there were 3 prices for everything...

 

the price the seller wants....

 

the price the buyer wants to pay...

 

and the price they agree on!

I used to have a co-worker that could get 1250 gallons of nasty black tar road oil into a 1000 gallon tank.  Maybe this guy fills it on the same principal?    :(

The value of our  antique tractor's has risen, in part because of the number of show's there are to view them. People are intrigued by them and want one ,and you all know what it costs to restore one of them the parts, the out there price of paint soda  blasting engine work and the like. Heck if you buy a decent one for the going price today of 500.00 and want to do a total restoration you can easily sink a grand or more into it, and again these tractor's of ours have lasted 40  to 56 years or more is that new cub gonna last that long ? Is it not fair for someone who has done an awesome restoration to get his money out of it ? Its capitalism at work supply and demand if you want something buy it do the work yourself and save some money but when someone has done the work for you he or she deserves their just reward.
