    This van is really nice, but I don’t see anything that justifies that price tag for an almost 30 year old vehicle.

      Condition is also a factor and not just age, in like new state or even new engine will have a much higher value than a old rust bucket that may not even run…

      There’s also rareness and collect-ability that can add to the perceived value and thus isn’t always directly comparable to other similar products…

      Some products can also just depreciate very slowly, certain products with a loyal following, or just very high quality to begin with, can retain substantial value even decades later… Take Airstreams for example, very different market from the rest of the RV market…
