  3. Was at a different garage the other day and there was a white 8C Spider under a car cover. Sad, because I've never actually seen an 8C in person.

    I actually have pictures of the GT2 and Daytona, as I posted them on Instagram. Would post them here, but I can't seem to save them to my phone and already pulled them off. Have a shot of the Competition Coupe, too, but haven't posted it.

  5. Some very good ideas in this thread.

    Maybe we pool some money ourselves and raise externally from HNWIs and start an alternative hedge fund investing in currently under-appreciated cars. What do you guys think? We'll charge a 2% management fee and a 20% performance fee. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>


     
  6. E39 M5 is an all time favorite for me, just doesn't strike me as a 3rd car much.

    I'm still torn apart between this:

    - 2 cars, 1 sporty (3y) /enjoyable the other practical long-term (9y)

    or

    - 3 cars, 1 normal, 1 practical and 1 for summer
     
  7. Classic Aussie cars have been pretty level for the last 10 years....

    Basic Holden Toranas are still $20,000+, and Phase III GTHOs are still $500,000+ :/
     
  8. with you on the Ferrari bit as well. the 599 had a manual as well. though very few were sold. currently the last Ferrari offered with a manual was the 1st gen California and I'm sure very few of those were gotten with sticks as well.
     
  9. i remember hearing something like 30ish 599s were shipped with manuals.



    The last few GT3 RSs have all been good.
     
  10. The E46 M3 seems to have bottomed out at £10k. I can't imagine them going much lower unless they've got tons of miles on.

    They're mostly convertibles and SMG cars, but there's the odd manual in there.
     
  11. i wonder what the ceiling is for the NSX.


    when I was first getting my 996, I could have afforded one. Now I cannot.


    I wonder if they'll steadily climb up in price.
     
  12. I know 3 were sold out of the Ontario dealer and one was up for sale recently but it quickly got snapped up.

    the GT3s will always be worth something as they're limited production and just the want for them in china is more than Porsche can make.

    the NSX is close to bottoming out and will probably be a really good buy for an investment about 20ish years down the line.

    I remember when $10k could get you an E30 M3.

    I knew a couple of kids in high school who had '69 Camaros since those were pretty cheap. I was thinking about getting a Mustang Mach 1 for a while.

    Now shit like this happens: http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/carsforsale/honda/accord/1715163.html

  15. E46 M3s will definitely appreciate. They're the last of the "small" M3s, pre-Bangle style, and NA I-6.

    when i was car shopping like, 5-6 years ago,


    I remember a white E30 M3, I think I sent the link to VMan and he told me to jump on it, it had 60k KMs on it and it was going for 19k. Super, super clean interior too.


    I might have even posted it on here.


    Anyways, that car would have made me an assload by now.
     
  17. some guy in Vancouver just bought Nic Cages ex 599 with 6 Speed. Apparently it was crazy difficult to source.


    I think NSX is already on an upswing, at least compared to a few years ago, slightly after or during the FandF phase. I was geeking them badly and there were early 90s ones available for around and below 30k with sub 100k kms.

    Damn near impossible to find for less than 40k now.


    If you see an NSX for less, with good mileage, I seriously would take out a loan. I think that would hold so much more value than my car.


    I think my car is bottomed out but I'm just trying to find ways to make it bleed less money.
     
  18. the water cooled stuff will gain in value eventually but who knows when. I'm awaiting the day the 944 turbo goes stupid in value.

    I nearly bought a mid 90s NSX for 9k without the drivetrain but someone beat me to it. one of the many cars I think I'll regret not buying.
     
  19. its weird how both the e30 m3 and shitty cosworth 190 jumped in value while a well sorted low mileage 944 turbo remains attainable for under 10k
     
  20. for you maybe. up here I can't get one for less than 18k canadian.
     
  21. well,

    the 190e is pretty legendary and the M3 has always been the icon sports car for modern BMW,

    the 944 doesn't have the Porsche shape. I love the Cayman, 928 and everything else, but you think 911 when you think Porsche.

    Plus, Adrien has completely scared me straight. I don't ever want to own a 944.
