Your NAS Trucks are overpriced!

Following a discussion we had last night during the VA Happy Hour, I was googling to find the price of brand new Defenders and ran into this:

http://consumerguideauto.howstuffwor...0-defender.htm (Date Published: 11/23/08)

[QUOTE]Price Range:
$11,800 - 18,400QUOTE]

So in summary: 95% of the NAS Defenders sold today through this board are overpriced and I'll entertain the next ad where a D90 is for sale around $11,800 and the next D110 that will be for sale around $18,400.
PM me I have cash on hand.

What I don't understand is where that info comes from to create the figures. Obviously you can't buy them for those prices, so it leads me to believe that the numbers come from an extremely small sample set of figures for vehicles that are trade-ins or come up for sale at auctions. After all, private sale prices aren't typically reported. One time, when I sold a car through traderonline, someone from the company actually called and asked me for the final sale price to they could add it to their database.

no idea.... I actually posted a comment/email there asking whoever wrote that article to contact me because this makes no sense. Many this is the same source that is used by the states to define the value of the trucks to calculate the tax (can't remember what VA uses, I had them send me a copy of what they used since my taxes were [are] going up every year.....).

I had my 110 appraised and Im in the process of getting it insured as a classic vehicle. Hopefully the coverage will reflect the actual replacement value.

You don't counter it, you use it when you need a lower valuation (like ad valorem taxes), and you use the numerous sales in the market at higher prices when you need a higher value like with the insurance company.

The only logical explanation I can think of is that that could be the average of what people are reporting to the govt. In IL, if you buy a car from a private party the state assesses your taxes based on whatever you tell them you bought a car for. Some people just report buying them for $1, for example, that is what I did when my dad passed his old car on to me years ago.

They're not using a sample set. I assume for these kinds of absurd prices, they just depreciate the start amount by a specific percentage every year. Means that they were too cheap to buy some relevant data or round up their own.
I'd like to see what they think a 1966 GT 350 or Ferrari 250 GT SWB is now worth.
