Not a Vega but here's another example of a vehicle that's probably overpriced.

narrowed s10 with ford 9 inch rearend (http://kansascity.craigslist.org/pts/1657461194.html - broken link)

Note it's a project and isn't running.

23 year old truck at that.

I have no idea why people take a car that's worth 500 bucks, put 2K into it and then think its now worth 2,500. Not true. I think the types of used cars that sell the easiest are ones that have been left stock and haven't been messed around with.

I love the "220,000 mile on the odometer, but engine just rebuilt 200 miles ago!" Trying to sell as if it's a low milage car. Who rebuilt it why are you selling shortly after the investment of rebuilding? I'd rather buy a used car that has 150k miles that didn't get rebuilt (if that even happened) by God knows what. Or many that I see since I am buying in California....."doesn't pass smog, but should just be a $20 fix" also see that for " A/C doesn't work, but should just cost $10 to fix!"

Honeslty, if it is such an easy fix, fix it before you sell because as far as I am concerned it's broke d!ck and your estimate on cost is grossly wrong. And unless you're selling at a great deal, I am gonna gloss right over your sale and buy one that doesn't have any problems. Saying it'll only cost XX to fix does not mean your vehicle is worth the same as comparable cars that are fully working minus your guess on what it should cost to fix.
