With that kind of money, someone could buy a JD patio seat still in the factory sealed sack.

It is just what it says in the ad, a D 180. . .     and very over priced. For that money every one wants the big one. The one with the Renault engine.

The only epidemic 'here' is the collecting bug that bites the vast majority of us. Lots of overpriced pieces on CL, most stay in their owners possession at prices like that, lots of reasons as to why the price. Most logical reason IMO is misinformed.
My opinion is on how you want to look at it, disbelief on what their asking, or incredible disbelief if they get it as in what the JD NOS patio seat went for. As a GT collector I'll pay whatever I want for a piece if I want and can afford it, not caring if I'm artificially inflating the price market of said piece, my collection, my money. I've been caught up in the oft vilified ebay bidding wars, some you win, some you lose, some you drive up the going price. HOWEVER I give credence to the fact if a piece goes for a specific amount (deemed to much by others) and has now set the going price it will draw the ire of others looking for the same piece.
I said it before I'll say it again when the day comes to sell most with decent collections will be hoping for bull market. And I'm venturing to guess the average age of this forum might be north of 50 therefore begs to reason whether we intended to or not our investment into the hobby will be heading for downsizing or liquidation sooner or later and I hope the next generation of collectors sort thru it, pay premium for the nice stuff and pieces they desire and can poke disbelief at exuberant prices like has been done here, part of the hobby in my opinion.

I'm in the other camp.... not enough. When someone does ask a legitimate WIW question, all they get is ...it depends on location, or it's worth what you can sell it for. Auction prices are close to a true value of these, not some crazy asking price on CL or Ebay. Scrap price did drive the value up, but that time has passed and the price of replacement parts has gone way up, which makes the non runner/ fixer upper worth less than they were 10 years ago. Good running LTs are going for stupid prices around here. What was a $250 machine 10 years ago, sells for $450 now. That is close to half of the new price when bought 20 years ago.

I might as well put my thoughts out there also,I agree that the what's it's worth threads are a good learning tool,I hear some guys say you need to do some research if you want to know what's it's worth,well if we didn't have this type of question being asked,how do you know,you need opin ions to get an idea of what's it's worth,some prices will be out of hand,some prices will be low ballers who want it for nothing,but at least you will be able to average it out and get a basic idea of value,as for replacement parts as they dry up and don't get reproduced the prices will go up,not much we can do about that,as a supplier I do my best to keep stuff within reason and not take advantage of others,I like to sleep at night,this is just my thoughts,hope the hobby can survive

I dont understand the guys that dont want to talk about what a GT is worth. Close as I can figure is: 1 they are buying and want to keep the prices low 2.they are selling and want to keep the prices high 3. they dont want to find out they payed too much for the one they just bought or 4. they dont know and wont admit it. 

They do have a KBB kind of thing for GTs, LTs and ZTRs that the stealerships use for trade-ins and setting the price for used equipment, and I think that is where some of the inflated prices are coming from. A 20 year old LT for sale at a mower shop is high because they have time and money invested in them. Joe the plumber decides he needs a new mower and prices his ragged out rider the same as what the shop wants for theirs, but its apples and oranges and most people wont find out the difference until it is too late.

Because there is no Blue Book. . .    And there is no Big Auction House.    There is only the condition of the tractor (which can vary from NOS in crate to junk sitting in  the tall grass) and how bad do you want it. It is entirely subjective depending on the individual and his geography. In view of all of that, do I want to be responsible for giving out bad advise? Nope!
