Not at all -- just my calibration of what one category of cars cost vs the other. A non-destroyed econobox from the 90's (a ford probe) is actually worth decent money due to how rare it is -- a wrecked nissan leaf is 1.) Not hard to find 2.) Not worth anything to anyone, so they really are cheaper. If I can talk my wife into letting me buy one, it'll be hard to explain "Yeah this more recent car was $1000 at auction in the same zip code, but this shitbox from the 90's was $2000 and we had to drive 14 hours to get it"
