Will the classic ever be a classic?

Recommended Posts

Sorry about the confusing title, the reason I write is because I have recently placed my standard ( except exhaust) impreza classic turbo 2000 for sale and I have had 4 people ring me now with the intention of putting the car away in the hope that it will go the same way ( although I expect not the the same extent ) as the delta intergrale, Sierra cosworths and audi quattros.

The reason I found this interesting is because although I can't see them ever being worth a lot I am now wondering if they have a point?? I purchased my Bmw e30 just before they started rocketing up in value for some un known reason and a quick search online reveals a few articles that are predicting them as possible future investment cars.

I know ltd editions are the first to go up, and anything slightly exotic so I'm not suggesting my old turbo 2000 is going to be a money spinner but do you think it's worth just covering up and leaving in the corner? It may well be one of those cars that in the future people wish they never sold.... For example, I wish I hadn't sold an escort, a 205gti and a 325i sport but I did when I should of just covered them up and left them..

Thoughts anyone??

There are far more scoobs around than there ever were Integrales, cosworths or quartos, it's the lower production numbers of these cars that make them a classic. It's only going to be limited editions that will keep their value, rb5s, series McRae and unmolested P1's from the classic era that I think will be the true classics, UK turbos and wrx's are 2 a penny so I doubt they will ever be a classic worth keeping hold of.
