So there is this really nice ‘53 Willy’s Jeep at a local dealership. I was really curious of the price, and what they are going for on the market. I finally got in contact with the dealer, who said it was “$8,500"...

After he stated the cost, he asked “so would you like to come in to see it?” “... honestly it’s too much.” “Well what would you like it to be at?” “Honestly, $3k or $4k.” I then proceeded to explain that yes, it’s an older car, but the history is a bit uncertain. Yes the Jeep looks great on the outside, but that says nothing about the quality of the engine condition and 4 wheel drive system and what not. “Well, we make sure the cars are running before we sell them.” I didn’t have the heart to tell the guy that two years prior, on that very lot, a dealer tried to sell me a 7th gen $8k-$9k Grand Prix, that had a cracked dashboard and just wasn’t in the best condition. A lot of items were damaged. I got my current Grand Prix for $6k, in a lot better condition. “Um, thanks anyways, have a good one.”

Still, it’s a gorgeous looking Jeep...
