I think Elton's range is in the ballpark.  About a year ago, a nice, low 
mileage BRG BJ8 was for sale in the North Bay Area, and I believe it was 
a no sale at $50K.  I think, unfortunately, that someone will really try 
to lowball a widow.

'Round the block' miles or no, it'll need new rubber if it's going to be 
driven anywhere besides, well, 'round the block.'
