Has The (Defender) Market Tanked?

Every few months I check around Ebay and Autotrader, and it seems that the "premium" Defender market (like other markets) has really taken a tumble recently. There are several very low milage 95s and 97s floating around for sale in the low $30K range, and that's just the asking price. Last year they were in the low $40s. While I never bought mine to resell it, it was nice to think that it's value was going up for a couple of years. I wonder how Copley's doing.

Silly money has been somewhat curtailed as of late.

As an auto enthusiast, any time is good to pick up a D90. I know our NAS's will always be collectable but at the same time, being able to legally import trucks from abroad stands to hinder appreciation. Between high gas prices and financing difficulties, I think prices have dipped but I don't really care as I still love driving it.

I dont think the market is that bad. I just bought a low mile 97 for a premium price and I had been looking for awhile. Take a look at Copleys stock of Defenders, they are way down on stock and are looking for more.
I also think ebay is a bad gauge of the market. I think people are scared to spend that kind of dough on an online auction(I know I am).
