Well they are around 30 years old mate.

They all can outdrive a c2 but just look what prices the old chrome ones are commanding,

They just arent as collectable so even the ones that are well looked after will eventually sell for way less and I blame the people who bring in the shit ones and flood the market with them .

They will be a very cheap way to get into a great handling usa sports car. I think too the old tpi scares a lot of buyers away, I mean why bother with that old foreign system when you can buy an old vt LS powered commodore or ute for same price?

For sure the markets been FLOODED with lefties - AND; MOST seem content with that.

I DID notice a 'trend' with C4's when I had a squiz; ASKING prices seemed higher for the old '84s than the later ones - MAYBE because of the manual box?
SEEMS like 84's MAY be trending towards 'collectables' even???

i never took much notice of any trends, but I cant imagine anyone would want the old cross-fire for starters, but that's just me,

one good or bad thing about the 84,s was the suspension was very hard (sporty?) and GM actually softened it for the later year models. As for manuals -all vettes should be manually shifted !!!!! :C

Doc would know more about the virtues of the 84,s I guess

I wouldn't want an '84 either, BUT; seems like some people DO.

"all vettes should be manually shifted !!!!!" - Maybe so, but they weren't all made that way - Perhaps that's why the popularity increase for 84's?

Look on the bright side; if you like them, you can buy them cheaply. I wouldn't mind having one for a while; if only I had the room and money. :C

Especially because now you don't have to convert them to RHD.

A result of the poor economy right now; mining industry has suffered, etc. Many miners imported during the boon; they're now unemployed or not being paid as well and are selling up.
