What do you want for it? in General Discussion Posted January 7, 2017 I am 74 & I show a 85 year old car. I must look really old as I get the question "Did You buy it new?" At first I would say no then I would say "Think about it" and now I just smile and reply "Yes". Some people realize my condescending answer to a stock question. Yes, I get pushy people who want to know it's worth by asking what I want for it.. My answer is a value of 5 to 10 thousand above the price. Then I just ignore further inquires. The question of "How do you value an older car?" gets the following answer. The price is close when the seller thinks they are giving it away and the buyer believes the seller is giving them the shaft. Most people smile and reply good answer.
