This isn't pointless but I don't want to be accused of spoiling some for sale threads.
:lol: :lol: what is it with some of these 'buses for sale' prices??? :lol: :lol:
You gotta be having a laugh.

They seem to keep selling pretty quick, I know of 2 £40k+ sambas that sold within a fortnight in worse condition than the one advertised recently for £22k.

It'll calm down now winter is arriving no doubt .

It only takes a couple of busses to sell for big bucks then everyone thinks their bus is worth double .

That Lotus place in Canterbury seemed to sell their buses they had for sale at similar prices (after buying them on here for significantly less)

I no longer have a bus.
I'm trying to enter a far,far darker world
than buses where prices are realistic and there's
no real bandwagon for people to leap on.

Morris Minors then? Can't be anything VW related as you have mentioned something about realistic prices. :lol:

If someone is willing to pay a silly lump of cash for a common old VW, then I guess that's their choice. If someone offered me it, I'd be tempted too.

Agreed.

If a bus sells for a ridiculous price then great, anything is worth what you can get for it. Of course if it doesnt sell you just look an idiot and a chancer :lol:

I agree with the last couple of posts, I sold my last 15w for a fairly high price I thought and then the guy was gonna spend another 25% of the value converting it to RHD an shipping it to New Zealand. I in turn paid a fairly high price tag for my latest bus. They're worth what someone is willing to pay, but as said previously there are buses that have been for sale for 12 months and haven't dropped their asking price which seems rediculous considering they're asking £60k+

I know! I seem to remember you had a fantastic Westfalia but sold it to VW museum for what seemed like a lot of money at the time? Wondered what they would pay for it now.
