Here's what Hagerty says.... now add up EVERYTHING this car needs in parts and labor, deduct it from Hagerty's figure, deduct costs associated with acquisition (taxes, fees, transportation, meals & lodging) and see what's left. That's what it's "real" value is, at that moment. Depending on the market, you could, in 12 months time, have equity....or not.
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is "excellent."
What, me worry?
