Some areas good parts at a decent price are more or less difficult to come by due to supply and demand. As I've said before, I have never paid more than $100 for a 231 or 242, but I would feel comfortable paying up to $250 for one. For $250 it had better be low mileage, already pulled, and CLEAN.
Some areas $250 is the bottom of the barrel, but there ARE deals out there, you just have to find them.
Oh, and when a yard tries to bend you over for $300+, laugh it off and give them a REAL offer. Odds are they're ignorant enough to mock you and will sit on the case. Sometimes you'll get lucky and speak with a yard jockey that realizes the case has been sitting on their shelf for years and isn't going anywhere at their asking price though, and that's when you get the best deals.
