I know what the whole problem is…that is hurting the whole performance classic car market in general…it is the newer muscle cars that are out there.
I have older performance classics for sale… in new condition… that are not moving at all…period!
Most people out there think that why should I pay all that money for a older classic when I could buy a newer high performance model with a warranty?
eg.Camaro and Mustang
There is no comparison of the new muscle cars to the older classics in performance…they are in a different ball game … They’re alot better and more efficient !
How long will they last though…is the mystery question?
There are two main reasons that I think they are wrong in not buying a classic…
1st…The newer ones depreciate heavily and are not a long term investment.
2nd…The newer muscle cars will not last as long as the older classics…Why?..They are full of electronics!
The manufacturers are only supplying parts for no more than 5 years or less…what happens after your electronic dash quits?..electronic differential?..main computer replacement?..engine computers…wiring harnesses…transmission computers…
…computerized suspensions?..not to mention body parts?..for a 2019 Mustang Bullitt for instance?
There will be more cars in the junk yard in brand new condition than the older classics.
The electronics in almost all cases are more expensive to fix than what the whole car is worth… when they are let’s say 7 years or older!
It’s not at that point yet…wait a few more years!
If one wants to make money in most cases …or lose…(yes!..sometimes there can be a loss in some cases…depending on how much one pays for a classic!)…always do your homework before you buy!..but in “almost all cases” one generally will not lose when buying a performance classic!
