Question about regional value

Post by gptrash on Thu Dec 01, 2016 7:05 pm

Hello, I'm new here so if there is a forum to introduce myself at, please point me in that direction.

I'm curious about g10 value from region to region. I've seen a couple posts were people are looking for California vans. is that due to availability or lack of rust. are they more valuable on the west?

With an unmolested van/project it's all about rust. Or really the willingness to deal with it. Kind of curious on value out there as well . It seems like a lot of what we here east of the Missisip call nice they have in junkyards

Everybody is going to have an opinion on this one......Mine is grounded in the desert on Arizona's "west coast" (the Colorado River) and based on conversations I've had on 91-96 GM wagon forums......Here it is:
Rust free vehicles are always more desirable and probably more pricey...... But only on a "where is" basis......
Translation- The value of rust freedom is usually less than the cost of moving rust free vehicles or sheet metal from a rust free region like Arizona......
It sorta broke my heart last year to scrap a totally rust-free 91 Olds Custom Cruiser when none of the guys in the rust belt who covet these cars were interested in claiming rust free sheetmetal FOR FREE!..... I was even willing to trade complete running car for rusted running car because I wanted only the drivetrain....
The cheapest, most shady transportation (U-Ship) adds trans cost to any long distance transaction of about a grand, minimum......Most folks arent willing to spend the extra grand to get rust free, so it goes to pick-a-part....

So let me ask this: At what distance does a deal become "geographically impractical" TO YOU?
