SOMEBODY’S surely got their wires crossed somewhere…
This article claims: "For the sake of this article, we’re limiting the scope to ’80s and ’90s cars that typically traded below MSRP when new."
According to this article, how many of these are trading below their original prices? I don’t actually know, but it looks like few-to-none.
Why should such an article; speculative, and based on speculative opinions; be passed onto Hagerty’s general readership, (who’ll accept this and possibly financially act upon it….) ?
Shouldn’t you be focussing on the cars of this era that are both more affordable, AND more available?
If indeed, it will be the “Youngtimers” who will soon be in charge, propelling our whole “industry/philosophy”, then why exclude the largest group of their “product/interest” cars?
The higher-end Japanese motorcars of this era.
They’re proven to be fully capable of taking on the best of European “royalty-automobiles”, but doing it with better reliability and at a lower cost.
I realize that this particular article is about supposed “performance” cars, but you’ve still excluded too many that do qualify.
Please rethink and re-publish another article that gives a more balanced and wide-ranging view.
