I can't resist sharing that the 2012 Leaf replaced my 30-year-old 1982 Isuzu diesel long-bed P'up. It had but 83,300 miles on it and brought $3,700. eBay suggests that my 1985 PC's Limited "Dell" desktop wouldn't have retained its value in a similar fashion after 30 years.
Not to take things too far off topic, but you can't compare the price you paid for it 30 years ago with the price it's worth today. Inflation has made the original price much greater in todays dollars.
I don't know what you paid for it, but lets say it was $10,000. In 2015 dollars, that would be almost $25,000. So $3000 is not anywhere near as great a value as you might think.
