Rat rods are starting to get rolling down here now. Rice burners might not increase but the kids of today will relate to them in 15 years like we relate to the 69 chevelles and camaros and such. My dad doesn't much care for the camaros and chevelles but does like the older 55's and likes my 38 and the older coupes. It goes in generation cycles it seems.

American made cars especially Muscle cars still rule for $ value, rice...never.

Rice no value? Really?

Last gen Supra.
Nissan GTR
Anything Mishubishi VR4
Suburu STI
Acura NSX
Lancer Evolution
#'s matching Civic Type R & Integra Type R (they are low production models)
Lexus IFR

I'm not a fan of any of those cars (except the GTR) but I forsee all those models being collectable and sought after in the next 10-25 years.

We were talking the other day.... kids these days like the bumble bee tumner cars for the most part. It got me thinking at what point will certain models go by the wayside so to speak and lose there values and what models will hold or increase in value?


Early and mid 80s Corvette are Dirt cheap right now and the 84and newer have the aluminum A arms and rear components some of the best handling vettes for cheap,,in this area2500 to 4500 for a really good example I bought this one for 1500 runs and driver great ,jhas all new leather interior but needs paint.

I agree ^^^^. but we could both be wrong. that cross ram injection might be just as hot in 20 years as the Rochester injection is today. both were hated just as much as the other when new.
If I knew what would be hot in 20 years I'd be a rich man today after selling my half dozen tri five chevys for cheep (including the 56 Convert that I traded for a stock 283). the 71 Duster 340 that I sold, after 6 years, for just what I paid for it ($1200.00) the hi-po 65 Mustang FB that I sold for $1500.00 etc etc etc.
Now that I think about it…… I hate cars.

I agree, they are dirt cheap and are good parts cars. But sticking to the topic of this thread I can't imagine they will ever be collectible and will always be the least collectible of all the 'vettes. They truly represent a ho-hum period for the corvette.

I agree 100% on that. I like the style of the 50's early 60's and the new ones out now.

A few years back the 74 - 80 were the same ,non desirable and cheap they have since recovered someday the 84 up will do the same ..but I don't have time to wait for that
I will be using all the engine running gear ,suspension and interior in this truck soon as I finish the red one.

Now you've got the idea I've done my part to help increase the rarety and value of the C-4s also, by removing a 90 Vette from the gene pool. the running gear went in my avitar 62.

No need to thank me, C-4 lovers, as it was my pleasure to do it for you.

Value of a Ricer...

Ok so really, rice may have some value but only a small exception and compare it in another 10 years to an original hemi car and see which one "still" commands more $, pretty easy answer.
