Default so sad

i was looking on ebay today, and I just thought it was so sad that every 92 i saw was either not selling at all, or selling for very little money.

bummer of a year.

Yeah, but c'mon: these are not rare cars. Wanna buy one? Skim the local classifieds and pick one out.

eBay is useful if you're looking for, say, a '58 Bonneville that might be halfway across the country, and you'd be willing to go there and get it. But you're not going to do the same thing for a '92 when there are thousands of them in your home state, with a hundred or so on sale at any given time. Basically those '92s are not selling on eBay because people aren't looking for them on eBay in the first place.

92 was the first year for the model as well. Always need caution when buying them etc.

Yes we know they're the same as 91 model in nearly all functions, but it looks like a complete redesign, so most all buyers avoid them.

well i'd say that the larger problem is with the egr less design of the 92. anyhew, why its so sad is that pretty much all other bonnies (save the really old ones) are going for about 5-10 times more than the 92'*...

I wouldnt' mind buying a 92 just to use as a winter car.. it'd save wear and tear on my other car.
