    I'd be afraid to drive anything like that--what if you got it scratched?

    I wouldn't be afraid to drive it but certainly I'd be a lot more upset if a car like that was totaled than a new one

    I just can't bring myself to spend over a certain amount for a car anyway

    I would too, even if money was no object.

    Yeah, for example at a $100,000 price point, all I could really think of is the trade off between a depreciating asset that will be worth maybe $40,000 in 5 years vs. the potential of investment at 7% compounded over 5 years being worth $140,255.

    Of course no investment return is guaranteed, but even cash in the mattress would still have a value of $100k in 5 years vs, that $40k car.

    Any Collection I would have wouldn't be too concerned with investment or resale value--it would be a collection for fun or for a specific purpose


    Or both.

    Yeah but I am talking specifically big ticket items like classic cars. I think the days of even getting an MG or Sunbeam in good condition cheaply are long gone.

    An E type! Pretty car but they spend more time in the shop then they do on the road. I'd get the same era Big block Vette.

    Yeah they are not unreliable, but I will admit that an E type convertible has got to be one of my favourite cars ever built. That said I know I am not ponying up for one anyway.
