  1. OK, so I have pix of the cars. They aren't any good for determining value, however they are great fodder for carsinbarns.com! Thanks to everyone here for their sage advice.
  2. old car fan: we're selling the cars, not the memories ;-> but I get your gist. A by the sea: thanks, what you said makes sense, and is what I've been thinking anyway.

  5. So my family has a bunch of old cars that have been sitting in a large shed for many years. They haven't moved since the mid-70's. (they are on a farm in Ks) We're trying to determine value for these as they will be sold or sent to auction and I'm having trouble finding good sources for this. I looked them all up on the NADA guides site, and I don't think they meet the "low retail value" bar because they aren't in 'functional condition' which I assume means running and drive-able. definition: Low Retail Value This vehicle would be in mechanically functional condition, needing only minor rec
