Is This Third-Gen Worth $45,000?
The $45,000 Third-Gen Camaro
While scrolling the ‘web on a lazy Friday morning we found a beautiful Third-Gen Camaro for sale on Craigslist, which is nothing out of the ordinary. What’s out of the ordinary about this car is the asking price of $45,000. You read that correct, a whopping forty-five thousand dollars. Not $4500.
The prices of Third-Gen Camaros have definitely gone up over the last few years. They are still a popular car and can be easily upgraded into a drag car, Pro Touring or even show car. Due to their availability and low price, they have been getting bought and the price has been going up.
This example has been redone from top to bottom. The ad reads:
