*posted from another thread of mine on another board, so ignore the references to other posters* skyrocketing in the next couple of years. Well, maybe not skyrocket, but they are definetly going to go back up in value, if not at the very least hold their value. Not to rub bad luck in or whichever, but this thread here, http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=342159 just goes to prove something that I have been predicting for awhile now. This is just the first in what I feel is going to be more occurences, especially as less car-savvy people start getting into the market. After a few more people get burned on fake WS6's and SS, it's only going to drive up the value of the real ones. Mark my words. It's going to happen. I really think it's going to happen sooner then most people think, and here are a few reasons. Now, this is just off the top of my head, but I'm sure if you actually read into this, then you will start to see alot of valid points coming through. First of all, I think somebody eluded earlier in the thread that the F-Bodies would not be valuable, in essence it would be another Fox Body mustang. That would be true, except the F-Body history has differed a bit. First of all, the F-Body was never built in the numbers that the Mustang was, so you have less of a number on the road. Secondly, the F-Body has horsepower going for it. In the course of history of cars, I can't ever recall a 300+ HP car that was never undesireable. True, the Fox Body mustangs have a huge aftermarket, but their are wayyy too many of them and the horsepower numbers they were putting out isn't really anything to blink at nowadays. Hence, their cheap and easy to mod, which is something the F-Bodies aren't. Now, this could all change if in a few years you see Japanese passenger cars tootling around putting out the same HP numbers as todays F-Body, but I doubt it. It seems like 300HP is the "mark" a car needs to maintain is desirablility. Third, is that F-Bodies are getting more and more expensive to fix, which is going to shift the market of these cars more towards the collector aspect then the "cheap HP" aspect that the Mustangs are in nowadays. Ever since these cars were discontinued, the price in parts have skyrocketed. As more of these cars get paid off or taken off of liability, the buyers are going to shift from kids who can barely afford to put gas in the car to somebody who's interest is keeping the car in the garage under a cover. Case of example. A friend of mine recently has his Camaro backed into by a truck in a parking lot. The truck was barely moving, and it was a 1 MPH collision, but enough to break the headlight housing, and put a little split in the fender and bumper. The cop who wrote the report up quoted it for 400 dollars. The insurance adjuster quoted it for 1500 dollars. That's expensive, and that right there is bound to shift the market for these cars, exspecially as they get older and people start taking them off of full coverage and put them on liability only. Fourth, and the last point is that the F-Bodies share one thing in common with all the other valuable muscle cars in the past 40 years. They were basically unwanted at the time of their death, that is because they had no attributes that the people wanted, but they excelled in everythat that people look for in a collector car. So in short, I'm not saying that you should go out and buy one in hopes of flipping a quick profit. I doubt that's ever going to happen. But if you have one right now, especially a SS/WS6 edition, I would hang on to it.
