    As most of you know, I've been looking for a 97 LC or LX450 w/lockers. I found a white 97, fully loaded, with lockers, 92K miles, $15,350 obo which is blue book, (for my zip code). The guy said there is 3 small dents in the liftgate. I will go to look at it, not expecting anything spectacular, and hopefully, I will not be let down!! Also being a mechanic at a dealership, I learned that my used car sales mgr. cen find what I'm looking for. I'm getting closer!!!

    Joshua,

    Sounds good so let us know how it comes out. That's a good price for a locked '97. Don't worry about those tailgate dents as you can have them removed inexpensively at those paintless dent repair places.

    I think that's still about $2k too high, but good luck.

    Hey Junk, stop driving down the prices just because the trucks on the east coast are all pieces of crap :) Here where the real men wheel, the prices are a tad higher :)

    PS, Are you camping next to us in Moab?

    Yeah, unfortunately here in the "silicon valley", almost everything is more expensive!! Our 1270 sq ft. townhouse 2 bedroom 2/12 bath 1 car garage was $280K 2 years ago!! But then again, our income "makes up for the cost of living"!!

    :flipoff2: :D :D Yeah, they may be rusted pos, but they are cheaper. ;) Actually not bad rust in most cases since around here folks stay home in the snow ???

    That's cool. I've been told that I am the crapper, so it's nice to know there is another out there somewhere. :flipoff2:

    Those NOVA prices are comparable to Idaho TLC prices.
