@tmbaier That is sound advice and I believe that any value guide should be approached that way. Being on Hagerty’s price guide team, I will defend the guide by saying that the Hagerty Price Guide is a generation of the North American market and may not take into account any regional buying trends. With new-ish collector cars, I found that it isn’t always wise to go off of the rated conditions, mileage is absolutely a factor. For instance, a modern collector car with 50,000 miles but in amazing shape wouldn’t fetch posted #1 values, it may not even muster #2 values. For reference, I wouldn’t use a car as a comparable for a #1 value unless the odometer showed double digits. To me a #2 car shouldn’t have seen more than a couple thousand miles per year over it’s lifetime. #3 is where I would lump most of the modern cars we see with any sort of usage that approached an “every day summer driver”.
That said, your insight is helpful and we will take a close look at C4 Corvettes for the next update and look for adjustments to better align it with the market.
