Pretty much it. You may get lucky and find the avid collector that will pay
a premium for a low mileage car that is "show quality" and wants to keep it
for another 10 or 20 years. Right now it is probably about $2000 or so. If
it was a Limited, the value could be as much as $2800 and gain as time goes
on. Leather, lots of options would make it more desirable.
There is a curve, but I don't know where the curve is today. Remember the
'57 Chevy that cost about $2k new, dropped to $50 as it depreciated, is now
about $10k or more.
If it's as nice as it should be w/22K & lifetime-garaging & needing
nothing (other than servicing--I already know it needs tires, if original,
'cause they would start bumping around 7-10k miles) & a decent color &
loaded, I'll pay you $2k for it here in SC. My adopted mother just bought a
too-small car & doesn't drive it--glad she picked it out rather'n me! Now,
this gives you something to work against--or toward--as it's an offer rather
than an estimate. s
