There’s some decent deals on C6’s out there compared to the C7’s too. I like the styling of the C7 a little more if I had to choose one over the other.on that note a C6 grand sport has to be one of the best most under appreciated cars of our time.
those things are gorgeous and have a lot of great hardware.
That’s actually a really good point I hadn’t even considered… You’ve given me even more to think aboutIf you are thinking that this in an investment to pass down, then I would go for the 67 GT350 or the Cuda.
I love my S550, but I have to be honest, these cars are not built to last. The overall construction is that of a modern mass produced vehicle that is designed to have a 5 - 10 year life span. That's just the way cars are made these days. Just read all of the threads where someone snapped a stud removing the strut tower brace or installing hood struts (cheap undersized bolts), or complaints about water leaks (cheap adhesive tape based body seals). And all the high tech electronics (which I love too) will start failing over time and repairs will become nearly impossible with time.
There is no reason a car made back in the 60's or 70's (or even the 20's or 30's) can't be kept running indefinitely as it is not out of the question to fabricate literally anything you need. But cars made in the last 20 years or so are going to be almost impossible to maintain into the future. Sure, there are exceptions, but it is going to take a lot of love and and lot of care and lot of $$$ to make these cars last long enough to pass onto a new generation.
Definitely long term and appreciate. I believe you can accomplish that with a new GT as well, my dad never thought his 69 Charger would be worth anything 50 years after manufacture date, yet here we are. I could be wrong (god knows I have been before) but I think there are plenty of new cars, GT350s included, that will be worth plenty in 50 yearsA lot depends on what you are looking for. If you want performance and a car that you can take to the track, then a newer Mustang makes sense. If you are looking for a long term investment and to own and appreciate a piece of automotive history that you can pass on, then a classic would be the way to go.
Of course it's all just theoretical for me since I don't have a spare 100 grand laying around
I’m going to inherit my dads 68 barracuda (one day) so that’s not the best choice for me (and his 69 charger).Maybe an ERA Slabside, or a 68-69 Formula S Barracuda. Never an e-body 'cuda fan...
