I know it has. I'm pissed off that I didn't know about the drifting scene and didn't foresee such a huge price increase. I was thinking the prices were going to go down and I'll snatch up a mint s14 zenki SE.
But dude, to expect them to go higher?
Stock koukis avg. 8-11k out in cali. Stock zenkis avg. 4-8k. Sometimes more. Now think about the ones that are modified
It's insane. You can buy an s13 FB or Coupe for roughly aroud $2k throw in an SR red top that fetches you a little over what you got your car for (if you do it all yourself) and then sell it for nearly $10k! WTF?????
I think we've reached the point already with 240SX's prices. Besides the movies seems to only have newer Japanese cars (I.E. Z33s, RX8s, G/V35s, EVOs, etc.). I'd figure these cars to be the big thing with ppl, especially since by the end of the year and beginning of next many Zs will be coming off leases. Easy and relatively cheap pickings right there for many folks.
Also, take into consideration how much GM is trying to get the drifting audience to look at it's new lineup of RWD cars. The Solstice and Sky roadsters will probably be huge hits with n00b drifters onces word gets out that they're contenders at drifting events.
