All of them. Sub-$36,000 cars make the show look cheap, but therein lies the issue with the "Season × $1,000" gimmick.
The Wheel of Fortune History Wiki, a veritable cornucopia of the show's ups, downs, and all-arounds from its conception in 1973 to the present day, including info and pictures you won't find anywhere else.
Did You Know? - Over 130 BAV members have been winners on Wheel, taking a total of over $4,000,000 out the door. Some of them can even be spotted playing BAV's staple Daily Puzzle Game.
I feel like it would be better for them to go back to a $30K minimum with a fair balance of 30/35/40/Car, much like Seasons 28-31, rather than trying to balance things by making the cars cheaper, taking away more of the "in-betweeners", and fearing there's no going back on the season-themed minimum. We still have casual viewers on social media wondering, "Why is it always $36,000 at the end?"

The problem is that $30,000 at the start of Season 30 has the same buying power as $32,675 today, so increasing at the rate of $1,000 per season is outpacing inflation. It's getting increasingly expensive for them to keep up this model.
Eventually, somebody should realize they are accelerating away and rework the amounts. I can't see this continuing after Season 40.
