"1998 Honda Civic CX, goes to the highest bidder: 1.6-liter 4-cylinder, 115,000 miles but well-maintained drive train, clean interior, purple paint (where there is still some paint left), dents on doors, damage on passenger-side bumper, gets around 30 miles per gallon (highway), paid: $12,000, opening bid: $20,000."
Cars used to be considered a bad long-term investment. But if gas prices continue to rise, these small cars soon could be worth their weight in gold. Who wants to make the first bid?
