Bought mine because I wanted a late model performance car that would last into my retirement when the time comes. (before the great V8's were killed off like dinosaurs)
NO!!.Would you agree that.? The new mustangs ,Camaro, Challenger and chargers are classic cars right outside of the box ! I live in Michigan not far from the Woodward dream cruise . There are a lot of these type car enjoyed,well cared ford modified , and a large part of car clubs . There is also a group of cars that get together and park in Mustang alley at the Dream cruise???
I got mine because 2020 showed me, that tomorrow may never come. That hit home more than a few times that year.Bought mine because I wanted a late model performance car that would last into my retirement when the time comes. (before the great V8's were killed off like dinosaurs)
No.Too many made to be a collector. But it doesn't have to be my daily driver either.
When it comes to the 2015-202 GT350 the answer can't be based on the number produced. The number of the '15-'20 GT350's is roughly the same as the 1968-69 Z28, with the Z now a reasonably value collector car. I did buy a 1969 Z in late '69. Although I did not purchase my 2019 GT350 as a collector car, mainly because of my somewhat advanced age, and the fact that I do not have kids, it's my opinion that the modern ones will become collector cars. Nothing except Ferraris have the same sound and feeling, never mind being supported by the price differential, and strengthened by the 2019-20 engine blocks and the disappearance of ICE's which alone will magnify enthusiasts longings for the way things were.
You can't predict what will or won't.To add a bit the what I wrote a moments ago I can only add my track record on some of purchases/predictions over past decades.
A black/black 1967 Corvette 435 hp side-pipe convertible, ALL original, purchased in 1989. Everyone thought I was a fool as collector cars dropped in 1990. A few more: 1969 black/black Corvette 435 hp L89 (aluminum heads), original tires, restored, perfect, 6,800 miles;
1966 Shelby GT350 blue/white stripes - purchased in 2008 when everything dropped like a shot,
my two 1965 Shelby GT350's, one being #383, and the other #028, a hand built Venice car - where the problem was not buying the car, it was developing the opportunity to buy a Venice car - easy to describe, hard to do.
Of course the best was trying to get a key relative to buy a Daytona Coupe, one of six, in 1971 for $26K, now worth an easy $30 million. Everyone around me then thought I was an idiot. Too bad they guessed wrong - 100% wrong!.
There were a few others, but I think I'll rest my case. Everything true and interesting to real car enthusiasts and collectors. I think I could construct a course on the subject but it woiuld be long and complex. An especially difficult component is the aesthetic aspect, identical to predicting the value of a piece of art.
According to that article, my 2018 GT premium convertible with low miles will be a collector car. Too bad I only have a few years left.Saw this in my Google news feed:
