    You owned an Austin Champ at one time? If so, what was wrong w/it? (Since you don’t want one again.)

    Craig,

    I owned 3 non runners. I saved them from being crushed. Before I bought them in 2010 I contacted the Austin Champ FB guys and asked them about the value. Oh, they said, they are worth far more than the $2000 asking price. So, I pulled the trigger and bought them.

    It turned those guys couldn’t have been more wrong. This champs weren’t worth much at all… In the end, I was lucky to find someone who was willing to take them off my hands for what I paid for them.

    They certainly don’t look all that bad. But I know nothing about them. Personal opinion if you were trying to sell them around 2010-2011 markets for projects were poor unless they were priced way under market.

    The problem was the guy I bought them from offered to let me keep them where they were until I could find buyers, but then turned around after I bought them and said I needed to moved them soon. Unfortunately, I had no practical way to move them. Again, I was lucky to find someone who would buy them and move them.
