I’ve found a nice used 2004 Honda Accord EX that I’m interested in which is about 30 miles away in another town. The dealership is only asking $14,995 and both KBB and NADA both list the worth over $18,000. I did a carfax report for the car and it shows a one owner history with no accidents or anything. I also contacted the local Honda dealership (not the selling dealer) and asked them to pull warranty work done to this car via VIN. The only thing that was done was an Automatic transmission that was recalled and replaced under warranty. What am I missing? Why are they selling this car for what seems to me, much less than the worth of it? I have always assumed that car dealerships are there to screw you however they can. Any help would be appreciated

I'd like to find an old road bike ripe for conversion to fixed gear on the cheap. Thought it would be easy, as it seems to me there must be a huge cache of these sitting in a warehouse somewhere. (Doesn't WMATA and/or the cops pick these up on a regular basis?). The only source I can find is Craigslist, but that has not been very good, at least not yet. Anybody know of anything better? Police auction? Used bike wholesaler? Or perhaps my expectations are too high? Thanks.
