In 2012 I got my 2001 GT Vert for $6999 with 137k miles, bones stock. I overpaid but whatever.
Think of it this way; you don't have to deal with depreciation as much as guys like me that paid $14K do.
You wanna talk about feeling gutted, this thread prompted me to look my car up on KBB. Private party value: $4700. Trade in : $3800. And that's in "excellent" condition
Been a couple years but the last time I looked it up it was saying about $9K. I blame it on the new S550's driving down demand for the older cars
