I for one wouldn't pay premium price for any car simply because it's old and no longer common. I don't believe in treating run of the mill cars as rare works of art.
If you can get a sucker..er..buyer to pay $15,000 for a car that used to commonly fetch a three figure amount on the used market, go for it.

I certainly appreciate them, one owner or five, but it gives me the irates some of the prices asked for what were once common as muck. Now they want gold for them. A verifiable one owner vehicle of that age is rather extraordinary true, but only for the rich it would seem.
My 89 Laser Ghia sedan will be thirty next year and I got it as a one owner country car in 2010 with 112K on the odo. Now has 175K. Tidy unit for it's age and just fitted a new set of tyres since I bought it and some TX3 alloys. Looks sharp.

Not yet. Watch that space.
EDIT: may not bother to post a pic in that thread as there has been the notorious ATDB response refusal in that topic of late.
