I was bored yesterday, and googled Solstice Coupes for sale. There weren't many, and most were reasonably priced. I know with the limited number made, they will probably go up in value. (Could have bought one for $16,000 in August of '09) One dealer in the list had one yesterday, and wanted $75,000 for one. Maybe he was smoking the funny stuff, but geez, $75k?

Ahhh, don't be too offended. Obviously they're in no hurry to sell but if someone comes along with 75 large......
I guess. Must figure there is someone somewhere. Might not be for some time, though. Probably not on a floor plan from a bank!

when I went to visit one of these high priced coupes in Pa,
the car was in a dealer lot - garage actually.

The guy said that the car was high priced because he
really did not want to sell it - but he
had to list it for sale to keep the car covered by insurance.

quirks of the system I guess...

Could see the insurance angle - or the "you never know who might come along" angle also.

House out by our place has been for sale since 1997. 1,200 sq. ft. ranch on 5 acres in the middle of a farm field and they're asking a quarter million for it - double market value. Guy can't have more than 60k into it, so he technically COULD make a good profit.

That 75k coupe was for sale in April as well for the same price. I think it works as an attention getter possibly drumming up more business.

A buddy of mine became a realtor and first thing he did was put his house for sale and do open houses every weekend to drum up business. His house was worth roughly 160-165K and he listed it for $215k and sold it 5 weeks later during an open house for $210. The buyer put 50% down and house appraised at 170K. Weird things happen.
