I have always wondered what is going to be the next "Classic Car". I watch Mecum Auctions and Barrett Jackson auctions and wonder, whats on the road today that will be running through these lanes for stupid money 20-30 years down the road? What somewhat common, everyday type car will people be kicking themselves, when they are 60 years old, that they wish they never got rid of? I think this would be a good topic for this crew...chim in with what you think will be worth money 20-30 years from now that was built 1990's til now.
One of my picks would be the Pontiac Solstice for the common car, but the coupe for that rare car. I had one as a fun Sunday convertible car, but then traded it in for something more practical with kids and got a Jeep Wrangler, I think I will be kicking myself down the road. My reasons would be that Pontiac was a huge staple in the car industry and is no longer in production and thay only built 65,724 total Solstice from 2006-2010 and they are a car that will look good on the road still 20-30 years from now. Here are the numbers from Wikipedia
The car went on sale in early 2009. The Pontiac Solstice Coupes are considered to be quite rare: There were a total of 1,266 Solstice Coupes that were able to be manufactured before the production line in Wilmington, Delaware was shut down: 102 pre-production 2009 models, 1,152 sequentially-vin'd regular production 2009 models, and 12 pre-production 2010 models. This is in contrast to over 64,000 of the Pontiac Solstice Convertibles that were manufactured.
What is your pick for "that car to hold on to"?
