    A friend is selling his elderly parents two cars, a 1984 Corvette and a 1986 Toyota Supra. Both have about 40,000 km and have been in storage with care for about 20 years. Both are in good condition and were stored well, but would benefit from fluids, tires and batteries before any attempt at usage.

    Where would you try selling such cars? Not that rare or collectable, but someone must want a 40,000 km, 30+ year survivor. Maybe BAT?

    Cars are located in Calgary AB if that matters.

    YES to BAT. But seller will have to be daily involved in discussion, and be ready to diffuse/ignore negativity.

    Here first. Less hassle (maybe) than BAT.

    Hi, I am close to Calgary and know someone that might take the Vette depending on price. Any idea what he is looking to get out of it. Thanks

    Sure and if they want to sell quick just put on Kijiji as in Canada we use that more than Craigslist.

    I'll second that. But also add Canadian AutoTrader. The 1984 Vette is going to be a tough sell. So Id suggest pretty much all sites you can think of here. Including Craigslist. The 1984 was very low horsepower, it was raised in 1985. So the 1984 isn't tops of the list for those looking for a C4 Vette.
