    I have a 1975 Honda Civic, good condition for age
    A bit of rust, nothing major, and uns well
    Needs a couple things battery and muffler and maybe complete exhaust?
    It has 100,170 original miles I am the third owner.
    Have original bill of sale and most of the bills for work done.
    I have had people wanting to buy it, hard to figure a good asking price?
    Anybody with any good links to prices for this 30 year car?

    I know nothing about Honda prices but here are my 2 cents:

    Unless there's a market for Classic Hondas out there, I can't imagine it
    would be worth very much (does bluebook list it?) Unless you really want to
    get rid of it, hold on to it for a spare car - you never know when family
    out of town stops in or your main car breaks. If you need to get rid of it,
    give it to a poor college student - the smile you generate is worth more
    than your money can buy. You could also think of donating it as there are
    tax advantages (in the US there can be, anyway) in a write off.

    Just a story:
    I had an old Subaru years ago that got TBoned and totalled. It wasn't really
    driveable anymore as the rear wheel was under an 85 degree angle and the
    frame was bent. Sold it to a guy around the corner -- had him write an
    understanding that I could not be held responsible if he decided to
    illegally drive the car. The car was "parts only".

    Well, one Saturday night, around 3 'o clock in the morning, I get a call
    from the CT highway patrol. "If I owned a burgondy Subaru" - Told him "sure,
    but sold it for parts to so-and-so". Apparently this fool had been drinking
    and tried to outrun the CHP! Rolled the car three times! It still started
    after that, because a month later he drove the car past my house - albeit
    with a huge dent in his roof :) (something to be said about Subaru)

    I am glad that I had him sign a "parts only" understanding because he could
    have sued me and may have even won.

    Moral of this story is that I would not sell anyone an old car other than
    for parts only or as an "as is" automobile - what they do is their business
    after that. While the car may be fine now, you don't know if both wheels
    fall off next week and it will come back to haunt you.

    Well, that might have been 4 cents. :)

  3. Vintage Hondas are going for big bux on ebay. A decent running 100K
    Honda Civic can bring anywhere from $1500 to $3K or more depending on condition.
