I dont buy the value. I think they are nice, and should be higher value than some others. I do think that Barret-Jackson is responsible for over inflating the value of used cars. If you look at the NADA gudies you can see some are worth upto 200k while others have a high retail between 30-70k.. that is alittle more sane than Millions.
Before Ebay came along the disney collectable market was high too. but ebay has destroyed it. As it turns out many items were not as rare as belleived and many collectors cleaned up. The hot wheel market did the same thing. The author of the first hotwheel collector guide, was accused of inflating prices in his book to get the best possible value on his collection. however mattel has tried to boost the market by making more exclusives. I cant help but think there is a crash heading towards us with cars too. as a collector of things myself, you must always buy collectables for the enjoyment and not as a replacment for your kids college fund, or your retirement fund. its sad to think these beauties are sitting around and not being driven because of false value attached to them.
you think this will be worth 1 mill some day?
