    Pay sixty grand for it and have to spend another forty five tidying it up.

    Personally I wouldn't give them six grand for it but some idiot will end up paying way too much.

    That's an expensive pair of door handles because that's about all I see that might be usable.

    Maybe the rear quarters are packed with bags of coke.

    $79k is realistic for what it is, maybe more compared to the crossbreed (or mongrel, whatever you call a dog not purebred) 4 door GTS above but 300!

    Nice car but it cost me only a little more in 2007 to build a 46 square two story house with double garage on 880sq meter block.
    $215k house $83k land. I know where my investment dollar would go every time.

    Not that I think for a minute that HDT is worth anywhere near $300K but what you paid for house and land in 2007 isn't really a fair comparison. How much would that cost now, I'd think you wouldn't even get land for than now? In 2021 $300K would be little more than a deposit for an average house in Sydney or Melbourne. An 850sqm block in the outer suburbs of Sydney would likely fetch $700K +. This is the cheapest block I could find in Sydney, $365K for for 275.5spm.

    To be fair it is $300K NZ so who knows how that compares to NZ real estate, I'd still be surprised if you could buy anything in an NZ city for $300K though.

    True, unfair comparison of what was available then to today. My point, although not made very well was if I had the choice to invest 300k would it be in real estate or a car, and would it be that car?

    300K is a good deposit. Average sale price in NZ is more than double that and more in the cities.

    I think I got what you were trying to say, just would have been better with an up to date comparison. My $300K would go on real estate long before I even considered spending it all on a single car.
