I feel the same way, and take a bit different position on the argument. 
I purchased a car that was all original and cosmetically in great 
condition. I wanted to use this as a daily driver, so I have been 
putting money into making it reliable as a everyday car. I did not want 
to go out and buy a "$9k book value" car in poor cosmetic condition 
simply because it has 100k miles on the clock and can run good. As 
after looking into the lack of interior parts, the cost to redo an 
interior or exterior panels of a D is much more costly than putting 
money towards mechanical parts that are still in abundance.

My option was a $12k car in good running order but needing lots of 
cosmetic work, or a $14k car with 3k miles and great cosmetic 
condition, but all original. I opted for the better looking car, as I'd 
rather spend the time fixing mechanical components that I know are done 
once I finish with them.
