A business can't survive if it pays $1500 for a parts tractor that only has $1500 worth of marketable parts on it.
Even us "regular folks" have overhead costs, but most of us don't take them into consideration when we figure out what we have invested in our tractor.
For example, I wanted a set of 560-style fenders for my Super M, to match the ones that came on my Super H. These are far and few between, but I found a set for $150 on ebay, buy-it-now.
Wow, I got those fenders for $150! Great deal, right? Hold on a minute... The fenders were 320 miles away, and the seller wasn't willing to ship. It cost me 13 hours of driving, plus another $150 worth of gas, to go get those fenders.
Those fenders REALLY cost me $300, more if I put a price on my time, but even so they were still $200 cheaper than anything else I'd found up to that point.
Us "regular folks" tend to ignore the overhead costs because we're not trying to make money but businesses have to keep track of every penny that goes out or else they go broke.
