Just an observation. No listings here for nearly six months. ? No cars, too many cars, no interests, no interests in cars that do not sell? Feel I can ask as an owner, that is not interested in selling.

I noticed the same thing, I normally visit the site everyday but have found for the most part no or very few post. I just figured it had to do with holidays and the season for most people.

No it is that fact that when a few cars sold for over 100K  EVERYONE (mostly dealers/quick flip resto style) bought Boss 351's to again flip "thinking they would profit" in the upturn !!   

THE BEST cars, aren't for sale and if so would be over $100K (as the collective value) of date coded, correct Boss 351 parts are what sets a high end car from all the others out there.  True collectors that value the Boss 351 shy away from the MSD distributor, repro ram air, missing radiator, manifolds and Rev Limiter ALL DAY LONG. 

There are sitll sub $40K projects out there and there are a TON of auction cars (now making the rounds at flip dealers) in the $75K asking range.   They will sell eventually at a price between what the dealer paid and MAX a buyer will part with.   https://www.hagerty.com/apps/valuationtools/past-sales/43244

Some of the best sales aren't even advertised , rather part of buys at large events we all attend.
