Saw a gen 1 on ebay for $965.oo.us You could buy a mint example over here for about a $1000.nz which is under $500.us. They are very rare over here so why are they so expensive over where you guys are.

Why are they so cheap over there?:)

The prices here really aren't too dramatically out of line in most cases.There are the people who'll insist that a rare vehicle desreves a high price tag regardless of condition.That's the shame of it,when someone asks big money for something still needing work and still very used overall.

Let's face it,supply and demand,the old bottom line.
Lots of people are remembering their first cars or the car they wanted way back when and seeking them out.That and getting a unique vehicle to stand out with while saving gas,insurance,taxes,etc.

THe price of a beater car has risen too sharply here.You can't touch anything worth driving for under $2,000 it seems.And that car will have issues too.

We paid $2500 CDN. An steal at the way she was kept for so long. We find that here in Canada, the price depends on how much you want the vehicle or on first come first serve.
Just before the Rhino Lining and undercoating was done we had "1maBrat" appraissed at 3942.65 !!! But everyone knows that if you LOVE Sube's Some will pay almost anything for the right vehicle.
