    well red was the dominant colour for the cars as well, I'm thinking metallic black for mine .... Q reckons he knows a good painter who can do it for $50 with a bristle brush :p

    thing is they were all dropping like stones with many being advertised even below $150k, but seems all those cheapies have now gone and theyre back above $150k.

    another year or 2 im sure people will be able to have thier pick between $120 - $150k

    Yeah! :p:p

    Yeah, it would have been good to know what condition those cheapies were in. I remember some of them looking great in pics. :D:D

    In a year or two will be the time to buy IF they are around the $120K-$150K! :D:D

    I dont see them hitting as low as $120K that soon, but we will soon see. :D:D

    You will regret buying a modern Ferrari whilst you live a million miles from a dealer with an SD 3/4 or whatever version it is now.

    and surely that's the sting in the tail for the long term value and survival of all modern models. They won't necessarily follow the depreciation to eventual appreciation curve, because the replacement and servicing cost of the electronics will spoil the party.

    Back to Qld's breakfast - no it was Redcliffe, Looney, and SOME people (not the nancy boys!) still did the drive over Mt Mee afterwards! Actually, you didn't miss anything folks, we were held up all the way and rained all the way just about and pretty slippery so was more a mooch over the hills than anything...

    they built something like 20,000 TR's (it was the highest volume model until the 360) but I suspect the TR will do OK in long term value, partly because there are no maintenance downsides (yes I know, apart from the belts).

    Few other cars are so evocative of the 80's - just wait till shoulder pads come back into fashion! :)

    some of us realised this would happen and didn't bother wasting our time :p

    well I didn't even take the QV as it was hissing down as I was backing it out of the garage so took the BMer like a big girl :eek:

    IMO 550 Maranello is the last modern car that might become a classic longterm and buck the trend . Electronics aren't that complicated, by all accounts mechanically bullet proof and only about 425 built in RHD.
