You know it hurts to pay more for parts but it is satisfying to be rewarded with increased value of making the right choice when no body cared.
I have a Pontiac just now seeing some increases in value. I bought it because I liked it not for value. At the rate things are going I will see more than my investment coming back. I will not sell it but it is nice to see it be worth something.
To say bull market may be a bit much here.
The Dino has already seen bull gain and I expect continued growth but at a slower pace. Pretty it is but fast it ain’t.
The GTO is a buyers market right now as I have seen some really good deals in the last year. Prices have been soft on good restored models being sold by older owners moving on.
The Benz is a Benz and with. Two seats there is always a market and growth.
The RX7 it is all about condition. It is difficult to find one in good condition. But if you do it will add to the value. I don’t mean a fixer upper either.
The Land Rover? Not much of a player in the states.
The Volvo is a cult car. You love it or hate it but if you love it you will pay. Again condition is king as it is not worth restoration.
Porsche 968. Just go for the 944 Turbo. More of them and more parts. Also better looking for the VW Porsche.
The Tesla. Buy the Lotus if you want more engaging fun. But like buying old Apple computers I am sure Tesla collectors will pay for this mess.
Now the Suzuki. Again condition rules. 98 percent of them are best to hell but still running in tough truck competition. They rusted they flipped over but they always ran and seldom got stuck. I have a buddy with one that is like new. I hope they go up for his sake as it was his fathers and it means a lot.
The Cadillac. If the roof drops the price goes up. What else can you say.
I have a Ferrari, and Pagoda SL, a 911RS, and 912, and Dodge Dragcar, and E-Type roadster, and Cayman S racecar and a 917 Porsche project, and NASCAR stockcar... Plus a Tesla. I walk by all of those pretty often to get into the Tesla. Its not just a disposable techno-gadget fine sir. Please try owning one before casting disparagements.
That is just not accurate. I am on my second Tesla Model S. My 1st had 8% battery degradation after 85,000 miles (and 5 years) of maintenance free driving. My new Model S has 1020HP (Plaid) and no degradation in sight. Look, I don't need to convince you (no need), I just want you to be better educated is all. Its coming. I am just an earlier adopter than you.
The first exotic car I saw up close was a 246 Dino. The owner of the apartment complex I lived in (Miami) had one. I drooled over that car. No way I'd ever own one and I can say that today. Instead, I got the next best thing: A gated Ferrari 360 Spider. It pulls all the same levers as the Dino, except I can afford it and more importantly, fit in the car. The Dino is a very, very, tiny car. I tried sitting in one a while ago and it was like sitting in a Miata. I guess Dino was not a large fellow.
