After a few more items are dealt with, the asking price will be $5-7K...
Do I don't know the history of the 1980 car in question, I'm only using the info in your posts.

Using your own words from post 1

" This may seem harsh.
My rule of thumb for vehicle sales:
* If I don't want to sell, quote a price at least three times my replacement cost. "

You admit to giving a "buyer" pricing 3X replacement cost, how is that not outragous? ( Replacement cost being market value. )

I didn't say I saw a "For Sale " sign, but when you give a person a price that signifies that the car is for sale. ". . Usually I say $3.5K, . . . "
