I think long term investment is a good idea.

I bought a 928 S4 Porsche when I noticed that prices were going up.

In 2 years I could sell it for 30 k more then what I paid for it, better $ then sitting in the bank.

They can go down in value too.

I recall E-type Jags and other UK cars hit their peak around the 80's/90's. E-types were fetching six figures.

They don't fetch as much these days and once you factor in inflation; they weren't a good investment.

The high end Euro cars are all about low kms as repairs are very expensive.

Who woulda thought a Mazda RX3 with a Savana nose is worth over $100,000 now. If I had the spare $$$ and a consenting wife I would prefer to go Euro, but my brain says Japanese cars are a good investment now. Also, 3rd Gen Camaros seem to be at a good price now. I reckon 80's style stuff is going to go up. I've also watched 80's Audi Quattro's and Lancia's triple in price over 3 years. Might have to download the app.

This has to be a generational thing.
As people from a certain era become more cashed up they want the car they lusted after as a youngster.
Although I am sure there are some cars that will never appreciate significantly in value, you've just gotta be smart enough to buy the next big thing.

One day Monaros, GT falcons, early US muscle etc. will go right off the boil. (in my opinion)

Some cars will never be desirable though.

Maybe, but hopefully not.

Ferrari's though.. Look at an F40 today. Looks so good.

Gee so many vehicles have passed thru my hands over the years that I wish I had kept, I recently went to the Southward Museum its amusing now that they have a section of the new collectors cars which to name a few, Mitsubishi EVO, Subaru WRX, Honda NSX, Nissan Skyline, Dodge Viper

The old line up of collector cars



Also noticed that this VW Kombi Bus just sold for USD $302,500K at Barret-Jackson WOW

Exactly the reason I bought my HQ SS. Hopefully they’ll keep climbing at a stupid rate. It is killing me restoring everything back to factory though. What I’m spending to rebuild the 253 would put a nice little Chev in. Matching numbers is very limiting. My modifying nature doesn’t like it at all

I'm amazed how OZ falcons even the humble falcon 500 are worth a bit of coin now.look in the US and falcons are still worth pennies even really tidy examples hence why I have a US one instead of an OZ example. On the flip side I suppose at least I can get out and about in it without being worried about miles being put on.
