End of the day i think vl bt1s, in particular absynth yellow ones, (depending on condition, kms etc) are increasing in value, they are definately not decreasing thats for sure.
The asking prices and selling prices speak for themselves.
This particular one we are discussing is just one example.

As Zvonko said, alot of vl enthusiasts have a soft spot for yellow vl bt1s and if given the chance to buy one at a fair price they are comfortable with would jump at the oppurtunity to buy one.

If I closed this one, I'd have to close every other one and then we'd have no forum at all.

I sold one of these that I owned from 1988 a few years ago (SA ex chaser). They randomly appear on either gum tree or ebay.

Mine had SV89 interior and also a Injected motor. I fitted a injected SV89 engine with some 355 come racing tweaks at the same time when the SV89 was current model and I can say it smashed most of the turbo's ,vn, vp and funny they all thought it was a carby 308 but the big gulp of the engines last breath was a giveaway. Back in the late 80's if you had a 12sec no NOS, it was up there with the fastest street registered cars.

What makes the yellow BT1's more thrashed than any other colour?

Mod's i'm not starting a fight, i'm asking a simple question in which i'm hoping to get a simple answer back.

You will find I said we purchased bt1's because they were cheaper / poverty spec then buying of general public. No mention of yellow bt1 thrashed more than other colour bt1 .

I don't know what it sold for but your avatar looks like the white VL turbo that is being asked about in the 'Where are they now - VL' thread. Check it out when you get a chance. I think it was the Victorian member '12maynem' that was asking about it.
