That's a major price drop :O I could have been interested at this price point when I was looking for one ;) Good luck with the sale !

I really think I got out of my Elan at a high last year.

My M100 had 133k miles on it and I got $17.5k for it, plus I sold all the spares included with the car for another $2.5k.

I bought it for $13k only 9 months earlier. The values definitely seem weaker these days for M100’s, and getting weaker, so you should just sell it for what you can get now. You’re only going to get less next year after having the holding costs over the winter, so it will be a double whammy.

I would say it's the fact that Americans don't seem to buy cars from Canada. We buy them down there all the time (mine came from there). There was a local silver one here in Vancouver a few years back that I was interested in but I went a different way. But he had it for sale for a few years (not advertising it very well but on the site) for $10,000 CAD so like $7500 USD. In good condition but no one was interested (it finally did sell).

People here in Canada are not looking for one because so few have ever seen one. There were 10 sold in Canada in 1991. I can't think of too many cars that are almost single digit in quantity. That's all of Canada which is a pretty big place. I'm guessing a couple haven't survived so like 8 or less actual Canadian cars?

So I don't think that prices are dropping. It's just that a Canadian car is somehow not a good example of the whole apparently. I don't get it that's for sure.

Any thoughts why you Americans aren't buying this car at that cheap of price? Scared of import process (pretty easy in reality)?
