There’s no doubt that there’s a bubble in the used car market right now. Prices are more expensive than ever, and the cars already overpriced are becoming even more ridiculous. Cars that were once affordable now cost an arm and a leg, and there is no end in sight. This means collecting a classic car can be even more expensive, even the cars drivers could once pick up for next to nothing.
So we looked at several such cars that are incredibly overpriced for what they are. Some of these cars are relative favorites with consumers while others are just plain outrageous in price. The fact that many of these cars continue to rise in price just makes it even more confusing. But when it comes to the used car market, you never know what to expect.
40: 1995 Impala SS – $10,500
The Impala SS that hit the streets in the 1990s was nothing more than an appearance package slapped on the already-existing Caprice. But it was appealing enough that the car gained a following of its own. The 1995 Impala SS has been featured in thousands of music videos and movies (via Trinity Auto).
But the present-day prices of these used Impala SS models are atrocious for what the sedan is. Sure, drivers get the floor shifter and the bulletproof LT1 motor, but aside from that, this is a very basic sedan and rides as such. Let’s face it, the Caprice was already outdated when the Impala package was introduced.
