    Toyota Tacomas are available for under MSRP new but list used near MSRP... I don't understand that one...

    Initial D/drift craze shot up the values of a lot of cars I owned.

    Example: I bought a $850 Turbo 2 Rx-7 in college that served daily and track duties for a few years. (At Thunderhill within a week of purchase). Can't seem to find sporty cars for not much $$$ anymore.

    I think people will figure out the utility and fun of the 996 (it really is a much more capable car than the 993) but I am not holding my breath for values to go up.

    The 996 turbo is a great bang for buck, but not a great track car, IMHO. I was able to pick mine up with 14000 miles for $32k. This was around July of 2012. I figure it's a matter of time before the 996 depreciates out and starts climbing. Richard is right about the non-Metzger motor'd 996s. The ISB issues definitely hurt the value of an otherwise great car.

    In 1978, I bought my first "classic sports car" project. A 1962 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk II (early version with triple carbs and side curtains). It ran, but needed a lot of work and a paint job. Over the next couple of years I got that work done. I originally paid $2,500 for my Healey.



    So here is my great regret in a lifetime of sports car ownership. When I was shopping for the Austin-Healey, I came across a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 at a used car dealership. This was the same model as the James Bond car from Goldfinger (or was it Dr. No?). The price was $5,000-, and it appeared that the only thing wrong with it was a missing window in the driver's door that was going to be difficult to find, and might have to be fabricated. I didn't have the money for the DB5, so I passed it up and bought the Healey. I wonder what that DB5 would be worth today? Answer from Haggerty = $744,000-. Oy vey . . .

    IMS bearing update, RMS and clutch is about 3k parts and labor. My car was 25k and had all that done and some within the last 4k miles. Its been talked up so much that its easy to find cars that have had the bearing already replaced.

    In regards to modern cars the GT3RS 4.0 seems to have appreciated the most. Most are still under warranty and going for 100k+ over sticker. I've even heard of one particular 4.0 where an offer of 200k over sticker was turned down. Pretty insane how much Porsche values have risen across the board in the last few years.

    BMW 1M's sold over sticker and are still over sticker.

    Blue & White Viper GTS & Viper ACRs. Other colors didn't hold their value.

    question: how much is GT3RS 4.0 when new (how much over MSRP) ? and how much is it today ?
    how about 1M ?

    my point is that if a car sold for 1 million over MSRP when new, today is selling at MSRP. that car still depreciated a lot.

    Toyota Land Cruisers. Even with 200-300k+, they can fetch a decent bounty. The 4wd adventure scene swears by these.

    The blue with white stripe cars always held a premium over the other color GTSs.

    IIRC, the 1m wasnt super popular when new. I think it was selling under MSRP. But now they are over 60k.

    I believe all the 1M were pre-ordered and there was never any examples in the show rooms available to whoever wants it.

    Just so you don't feel like the only TrackHQ idiot I bought a 308 Ferrari instead of the Dino's with only 6 cylinders and not a real Ferrari when both were the same price! And I also passed on the Aston DB5 well under $10,000 and it still pain's me greatly. Additional stupidity was passing up buying at least 2 Ferrari racecars with race pedigree when I had no interest in racing and no one wanted a beat up Ferrari racecar. They were dirt cheap and I had the money just no where to keep the cars. Stupid Stupid and still Stupid today.

    Yes, but you are at the Runoffs next week and that is twice as smart!

    Apparently Ford is bringing the GT back!

    Future Ford GT First Look - Motor Trend

    Maybe this will drive the older model prices down?
    Do you understand?
