chevy SS and GXP $35-50k range

In my opinion, under 30k is low miles. 100k is about average if you own more than one vehicle. Maybe I should return to stock and sell my low mileage car.

I look at it like this, 12-15k or less and stock, put it on the shelf, it's a collectable. More miles or any irreversible mods (bad for value) and it's a driver, but a nice one. 60 k is still low, average being 12k a year. Maybe 5k/yr if it's a second car, x12 that's 60k. Just my rule of thumb and then I'd add points for color. G8's remind me of years ago in the mid 70's when a local guy had 4 Superbirds in his driveway because they were so cheap and nobody wanted them. Ok I still miss a pistol grip. Best shifter lever ever, but that's not the point. Like those Superbirds that went ballistic in price regardless of mileage, the G8 keeps me wanting to hold on.

The whole used car market has blown up last couple of months 💣!!
Perfect storm 🌊...... low inventory, low interest, new car shortage.

Checking KBB values is a must before pricing cars, I almost made a big mistake when I listed mine:oops:
Still feel I left some 💵 on table.
Got more Dealers calling than private parties, go figure:confused:

My cars value has gone up $2,500 in the past three months. I’ve been checking ever since the chip shortage. This is interesting. I’ve never had. A vehicle appreciate like this before. Hopefully it holds. 77k miles and counting. Daily. Meh

In Australia 70000 km or 50000 miles would be seen as low for a 2009 ve v8 commodore, they would be asking $30000 plus but for a ve hsv clubsport you could double that. Got to agree with GT Drew get them on the road enjoy them.

At 75,000 miles that is only 6250 miles per year which is about 10 to 12k below average.

So even 100,000 would be low mileage.

What price valuators are you guys using? The standard KBB, edmunds, and other first page google results are giving me an average of $13,200 for a SBM GT with 95,000 miles.
