Back in the good days, bringing a trailer was a mailing list of cool project cars for sale. Then it became an auction site for selling cool and unique cars, then it became an auction site leading An auction site featuring only the best carefully selected listings. Now, it looks like he’s entering a new phase in his life: a site where you can sell the new cars you just bought for a huge profit. Welcome to Suckers Slides, all of you. Let’s see who paid the most this week.
1988 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16V – $29.001
Nada Value: $4,475
These classic GLIs More interesting than their book’s values might suggest. Those perfect boxy bodies, high-speed four-cylinders, and timeless grille wheels make it hard to turn down. at least Will be be at a reasonable price.
For starters, this does not appear to be a clean GLI indicator. Despite the accident-free history report, the hood definitely doesn’t match the front fenders, and the door hinges are dark brown with rust. For that much money, for a Volkswagen of this age, it has to be at least authentic.
1992 Nissan Sentra SE-R – $33,500
Kelly’s Blue Book Value: $2,566
This is Sentra SE-R It sold for more than thirteen times its book value. Yes, that represents low mileage. I think the reasonably priced, clean enthusiast cars are dead, and everything costs thirty thousand now. I will throw myself into the sea.
1979 Ford Bronco – $37,000
The value of my emigration: I am afraid to tell my emigrant about this car for fear of being assassinated by the powers that be by assaulting their senses. I am a humble messenger, but I am still afraid.
Listen, I’m enjoying Taco Bell like the next guy. Sometimes all you want in a meal is a batch of fuzzy Mexican-inspired, and totally unrelated, staples mashed together at Doritos Locos Cheesy Gordita Quesarito. Unfortunately, the time-honored gastronomy of getting implausibly stoned and contemplating new food combinations does a little less work on cars.
This poor classic Bronco It looks like its outside slathered in aftermarket Jeep parts While the interior has a dash design for the Mini and the amenities of a boat. The random assortment of devices connecting the fenders together will haunt me in my dreams, yet someone would still pay close to forty thousand for the privilege of owning the world’s worst off-road mounting plate.
1960 Fiat 600 Multipla at 52,250 dollars
Hagerty value: $46,900 for the 1961 model In the case of the Concours, Hagerty oddly omitted the 1960 for the Multipla
The classic Fiat Multipla It really is friend shaped car. Just imagine this little guy walking around, faithfully transporting people like an episode of an Italian minor movie big enough. I’m going to protect her, I want to see her grow up healthy, and I’ll tell my friends and neighbors about it, but I’m not going to pay $52,250 for it.
At the end of the day, this Multipla is a novelty. It’s less likely to be used as a daily driver than to be kept in a garage, sometimes brought in for a car show or detail session. This poor friend, is trapped alone inside because it is too costly to risk in reality Use. liberate him.
1991 Saab 900 SPG – $57,000
Nada value: 12550 dollars
The Saab 900 Turbo, and specifically the convertible, has always been on my list of dream cars to own. That’s 900 SPGcomplete with 3-spoke wheels, best street performance – but if it sets the pace for auction performance, I don’t know my wallet will keep up Which Difficult.
High prices often raise all boats on auction sites, due to the concept price fixing. People browsing BaT see 900 SPG selling for $57,000, and suddenly that price is firmly in their heads. By this scale, a basic 900 Turbo for $35,000 is downright frank theft – despite still being exaggerated.
2007 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLE Crew Cab Duramax 4×4 – $67,000
Nada Value: $23,650
What a twist. Instead of a diesel-powered Ford truck from the late ’90s to the early twentieth century, today we have one from General Motors. Instead of the standard Sierra, This is 2500 HD It looks like a classic, which means it’s the same GMT800 truck that was introduced in 1998, and sold 24 years later for $67,000. I wish I was kidding.
Get the most attractive red 2500 pickup trucks, I really. But finding an old one when it was built, and paying a new truck for it many years later, is a purchase I can’t fathom. You can’t use it for Truck Stuff, because you’ll be depreciating, but its value depends entirely on its theoretical ability to do Truck Stuff missions. that’s it joke gun in Wonders of Tiny Tinabecame reality.
2001 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 1953-2003 Commemorative Edition – $97,000
Haggerty’s Value: These Commemorative Edition cruisers don’t seem to have book values of their own
I take back every bad thing I said about the Catfish Camaro. This is the unofficial Corvette Edition Anniversary It borrows that car’s unloved grille, but gives it bright chrome arches as part of an overall retro restyle. It’s like a The mirror of the universe MitsukaThe evil twin of modern retro cars.
Wealth in the United States It is highly concentrated in the hands of the baby boomer generationbut they don’t need to spend it This is amazing. For $97,000, they could really get anything else. any thing else. Even multiple other things. It is almost impossible to do worst This is a Corvette.
2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 – $275,000
Wouldn’t it be nice to buy a car Only to sell it right away for more than double what I paid? Hummer seller lived this dream and bought a car Absolute Key Features Edition 1 Hummer EV And make enough net profit from the deal to pay for another.
My own thoughts on the Hummer EV asideThis deal looks like a poor investment for the buyer. Demand for this truck is certainly high, but it won’t replace the Camry as everyone’s daily driver. Supply will continue to rise, with demand stagnating or declining. At the end of the day, they’ll be left with an electric truck that’s worth it Something, But not nearly as much as they paid.
1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 – $470,000
Hagerty’s value: $405,000 in the case of Concours
This is amazing 1994 911 Turbo Arguably the Peak Porsche. It was the last moment of the classic 964 chassis, the best performance ever before it usurped the 993 body. It’s painted Guards Red, the classic Porsche color, and its immaculate condition means the turbocharged engine can still make every engine out of its original 335 horsepower. But, just like Multipla, God will help you if you expertise any of its driving dynamics.
The Porsche has a wired battery connection, which is meant to keep it drivable during long periods of sitting. It was bought by a previous owner just to sit down, now someone else has bought it to do the same. It’s art now, admittedly bewitching Art, but can no longer be functionally called the cars.
2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale – $772K
MSRP: $584,798, now starts at $625,000
Once again, we have new cars selling for more on Bring A Trailer than they cost at the dealership. With This is a FerrariHowever, there is an extra level of cunning. where New Ferrari purchases are very limitedThe brand is anticipating buyers who hope they already own previous Maranello models. Paying the above sticker for a used car may be Just A way to access the company’s good graces, just to buy a future car from MSRP.
This is most likely not a file Intentions When a late model Ferrari was put up for auction, but whoever paid nearly $200,000 on this car’s sticker is now a Ferrari owner in the company’s eyes. They have now gained a level of acceptance from the brand, and they can credit themselves with purchasing future models. Was this worth the cost?
