Not enough demand for NAS Defenders

Is there not enough demand on NAS Defenders currently? I have seen many postings on this site, but for some reason no one is buying them.

In my opinion, the selling prices are fairly cheap compared in the last few years.

What do you think?

Maybe it's not the demand, but the economy.

Not to roost you again, but I disagree. I don't think the prices are cheap at all. Yes, they are lower. I think a lot of folks on this site are stroking each other to make it seem like the prices are good and the trucks are of good quality.

Economy has driven up supply and driven down demand.

Economy

Hard to get a loan for something that old

For many people they are a 2nd or 3rd vehicle AKA a toy, people are thinking twice before spending money on toys right now

It's likely the economy.

If things weren't tight for me right now, I'd be looking for a good 90.

Definitely the economy. If things were different right now I'd be looking for a beater SW to daily drive.

I believe that the D90's are destined if not already to be classics. The economy and times are pushing owners to sell them a little lower than usual at this time. For one thing I think that the series 1, 2 and three, prices have gone up. The defender in its present form will soon be obsolete and will command even higher prices soon inevitably. Kinda like real estate. If you think in short term its hard to see the road ahead, but thinking of it as a long term investment its a no brainer.

If anything I think people on this site (excepting maybe some who buy and sell more than the average) tend to undervalue trucks and assail people for over pricing them. As far as demand, lots of people who bought these trucks back when there were expensive want to lay them off during the bad economy, and it deflates the value for people who actually want to make a sale.

So anyway, I'm not sure where this stroking is that you are talking about.

I still get lots of people giving me nice compliments on my trucks, and occasionally I get people asking if they are for sale. When they find out how much they are worth they're usually not interested anymore, which I find sorta funny. I just hope they keep making parts for them or else were screwed.
