Winter Resale Value...

Anyone ever noticed a considerable difference in the sale price a ST will fetch between summer and winter?
Is it cheaper to buy a ST in the winter, or any other specific time of year?

I've been following the NAS D90 market very closely since I put my '95 ST on the market about 3-1/2 years ago, and really haven't seen a significant difference in the sale prices based on time of year.
Even though the ST's are terrible by comparison to other models with regard to their ability to insulate and keep the weather out, I don't think the average buyer knows that, and still views the ST's as great snow vehicles because of the Defender's superior off-road traction. They are, but that doesn't make them great winter/bad weather vehicles.
It does help if you have doors and a top...
