    Check the prices posted on Edmonds (sp?), Vehix and Kelly's...that should get you pretty close.

    Knew a contractor in Spokane who owned a large warehouse with 30 Hudsons stored. He bought a new one every year and just kept them.

    Wonder what the collection would be worth today?

    As a deprecating asset keep them as long as you can. Cahnge the oil every 3K and the other fluids every 35K and youu'll do well

    There are only 3 reasons why I would sell a vehicle.
    1. It no longer meets my needs.
    2. It no longer treats me well.
    3. It no longer looks good from 75 ft.
    Age and mileage are non-factors.

    Keep mine in good, safe mechanical working order and run them till they drop. Car dealers love people who trade frequently or lease vehicles. Got over new vehicle "itis" a long time ago.

    I'll toss in my .02 worth, and it's the same as the earlier posters said. My car is just at 300K right now, it's a 1992, and it's still running like a sewing machine. Needs paint, which it will probably get this summer, but the interior is still good and everything mechanical works like it should. Why would I get rid of it?
