    I was thinking of buying something fun to drive. The classic sports cars, muscle cars and hot rods from the 50's, 60's and even 70's are fetching crazy dollars. What an investment if you actually bought one early.

    Any car from the 80's, 90's or 00's that you believe will actually appreciate in value?

    I kind of like the GMC Syclone and Typhoon.

    Honda S2000. I should have grabbed one when I had the chance. It's the one that got away.

    Just looked. Those are holding their value nicely.

    The mid 90's vipers are fairly affordable and will have that classic car look. I've had a few of them and have LOVED them.

    Those were cool. I worked at a Dodge dealer in the early nineties (parts driver) and used to drool over the Vipers.

    At one time, any Ferrari was hot. Then there was the Ford GT ($150k) I could have bought and kept in the garage. At one point I had the chance to buy a company-owned S2000 for like $12k. There's also the 930 Turbos my buddy and I was looking at. At the time few years back (~$60k), it looks like a money pit. Until it was established that Porsche turbo engines were solid as a rock without all the other maladies and their values then skyrocketed. NSXs were always hot but finding a virginal one is like finding gold.

    Early 80's Firebirds are going for big money now. Porsche 930's are going for big money now.

    These were reasonable for a minute, but prices have gone up.

    My dad worked at a dealer and I saw them first at like 12 and always said I've wanted one. Since then I had a 94 roadster, a 96 roadster with a cool removable roof, and a 2000 GTS that there might be a pic of on this site with my naked wife. ;)

    Hope nobody minds a bike in this thread but the Ducati 916 (and later the 996) were works of art. Even a car guy should be able to appreciate this:

    Personal opinion only- if you're looking for an investment value car, stick with the American manufacturers. The Japanese collector market is limited, and the majority have been trashed by people who don't know or care about the future value of a vehicle, not to mention that the Japanese quit making replacement parts much sooner than the Americans do.
