  2. Collectors item or not there is no way in hell I'm paying over $100k for a 28 year old Commodore.
     
  3. not even if you know theres a strong possibility of it gaining another few hundred grand within another year or 2?
    I'm pretty thats the only reason these cars go for so much.
    IE; Valiants, Monaros, Toranas, GTs going for 600k+
     
  4. True, but they are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them. To me this doesn't seem like it holds the same sort of value as say a GTHO with collectors.
     
  5. i really want one haha
     
  6. I dunno about in Asstralia, but I don't think the US muscle car market can go much higher for much longer. OR the super high dollar international market either(the multimillion dollar European classics). It's gotten to the point of ridiculousness, and while I don't think there will be a huge drop I do think it will slow down and stabilize within the next couple years.
     
  7. i like it.
     
  8. youd be an idiot to buy that. It was a shit car when it was made, it hasnt got better with age.
     
  9. A ha ha ha
     
  10. HAHA SIKK M8 ULEH
     
  11. Thats not the point of it being so expensive. Like I said, people only buy these cars because they know they're going to be worth 100 grand or so more a year later.
    Good investment.

    So no, I doubt you'd be an idiot to buy one.

    Brock Commodores were only going for ~25 grand a year and a half ago ... the Brock died, and prices have been sky rocketing ever since

    HAHAHAHA
     
  15. They know that huh. So there is no risk involved whatsover.
     
  16. probably a bit of risk, but one of the safest investments bar houses i can think of
     
  17. rubbish
     
  18. If the long-predicted economic slow down were to occur in the next couple of years then the market for such cars would surely tank.

    Luxury goods and collectables are some of the the first items to see sharp drops in demand in such situations.

    I reckon you'd be far safer investing in Gov't bonds as you have a guaranteed return with effectively zero risk. You get a lower return, but that's the price you pay to reduce your risk.

    Remember that if you sell it in 1 year for exactly what you paid then you're at least 6% behind.
     
  19. If you think so, then you have no idea about the car market....
     
  20. Refer to above post. There is only so long that this market is going to continue to rise. It's not like these things are classic Ferrari's.
     
  21. If you think so, then you have no idea about THE market...
     
  22. errr, to be honest, I dont, but you said the above on a condition....

    "If the long-predicted economic slow down were to occur in the next couple of years...."

    sure, if it happens within the next few years .... but untill then, I know the car market, and these cars are going to keep steadily rising....

    You could probably buy that car for 132,000 and sell it next week for 142,000 and make yourself a cool 10,000...
