The cars around me are priced above blue book because they are rare-ish and in demand for people who know what they are. I paid above blue book for mine earlier this year. But I loved it even though it needed work and I couldn't find many around for sale. I negotiated down a bit, but people really want these cars and will pay over blue book for them (like I did). Have a number you're comfertable with in mind and negotiate the price down.
