Nobody can tell. Its like an ' ebay ' of sorts. Depends whos looking for what and whom has funds.. too many variables.

I've seen 08 trailblazers go for 4500$ one week then the next their all over 10g's.

Theres no telling.

I know the lot I work out of has room for 18,000 cars/trucks on the blacktop, 2000 up on the hill in the background ( mostly insurance wrecks ), 3-4000 in the ' pen ' ( where the lease turn in's are staged before going to the detail/body shops )..

I believe the last figure on ' area ' of the ' lot ' itself was 6 miles. I know if I walk it from end to end, it takes me.. 30mins at a good pace.

Theres 2 lots in Syracuse NY but they are much smaller then the one I'm on.

That's cool, I always wonder about the "odd ball" jobs like that out there. Like when you're out driving around and stumble on something that no one seem to know anythign about.

Oddly enough, there have been a few. Not too many though. From driving one, its not a ' bad ' riding car.. just feels like being in a lunch-box.

What did you buy it for?

My dad had the very first 1993 Ford Lightning in the state of Nevada.

The truck was a thing of beauty.

well, now you need to call up that lady friend of yours and break in the car, D.

does the lot have any vintage vdubs? if there was one in the right condition i think i could tolerate a flight up and a drive back from yankee-land. of course this time of year would be very difficult. its cold enough down here, i cant imagine how bad it is that far north!
