Aaaaaand there it is, signature changed to a dealership site and a post saying how great it is.
Still good discussions came of this thread, even if it was started by a spammer with poor grammar.

Yeah it could have been a poorly programmed bot or just someone who was a non native english speaker posting just enough for us to chat a bit, then a day or two later changed their signature to a dealership link and replied to a different thread touting how great this dealership was.

In my opinion, there are many factors to be considered before buying an old car. If by old, how old do you mean? And what is the purpose of your purchase. Some buyers buy old cars as a form of a hobby and those old cars are often collectibles. Hence, buying them is a good investment for keepsake. However, if you intend to buy an old car that is barely working to make as your daily commute vehicle just to save on costs, then you might have maintenance problems in the long run. Initial purchase price might be attractive because their value has depreciated over time, but prolonged costs could take a toll on your finances. So you have to really see the condition of the car and the state of your finances too.

Right now the markets are up and people are flush with cash (collectible cars are all appreciating).
...wait till the next financial-shitshow to pick those collectible cars up cheap when the buyers all go off to nurse their 401k's.
(...but really, you should be pouring money into the market when it dives next, not old cars)
