    Hey Jim, howza bout a twist on your thread? What is your prediction for the hot car at Barrett Jackson in:

    5 years - 2008

    10 years - 2013

    15 years - 2018

    The question is what are the sleeper cars out there today that will come roaring back. Here's my list:

    5 Years - Daytonas (finally)

    10 years - 1989 911 Turbo

    15 Years - NSXs and Maranellos

    (Note when making your prediction, keep in mind that the average buyer at BJ is 45 to 55 who now has the money to buy the car he wanted when he was 25 to 15).

    I'd like to amend my list to add F40s to the 10 year prediction. And, maybe, just maybe, TRs.

    Other than having a sick desire to have a Trabant stuffed someplace just to keep it around I would also like to know if there are any euro cars that have not been mentioned that would be of interest

    Exactly Jim!
    There are cars and there are Ferraris!
    Cars.....usual daily stuff to drive from A to B; doesn`t worth to mention a brand name. For example, in Germany ALL cabs are Mercedes cabs...that says everything.
    Ferrari.....is a Ferrari and not a car!

    Yes, I`m bit kidding and of course there are many beautiful cars - each Bugatti (old & new models!)

    Sorry wolfgang, I was agreeing with your assessment of your TR as the best production ferrari ever built (albeit the 360 is equal almost), but the shark is in reference to the porsche 928. You can take pride in that also as your neighbors built it. Hope i still make your day.

    Yes I know and it was just my kind of sarcasm to answer you in this way.
    I owned and drove so many Porsches:
    1978 my first a 914/6 following buy a 924 in 1985, 944, 944 Turbo, 911, 928 and a t least a 911 Turbo in the late `90th....I have finished with Porsche!
    Anyway I found my toy -FERRARI TESTAROSSA-

    To be honest - Sorry, No!
    The "Golden Time" IMHO was the `50th & `60th. The `80th maybe also a bit but to me the `90th and 2000 are just usual daily driven cars.
    Remember in the past our grandfather bought "A CAR" and this car was passed to the grandchildren a.s.o. It was a live time bought!!!!!
    ajnd those cars are still running. Today, the industry is building cars for a 5 - 8 years living periode....and you have to pay for the waste disposal after this short time.
    Another reason, the amount of production quantity....

    Anyway

    Best Regards

    Another rare car from the 80's, because of the year, is the 83 mustang GT convertible. For some reason Ford did not make a lot of the GT version convertibles in 83 while they did make a quite a few of the GLX versions with the 5.0 package.

    The cars that will be classics in the future will be the ones that the buyers lusted after in their youth. I don't know anyone who ever lusted after a Buick Reatta, limited volume, or not. Same with the Pontiac Fiero. Those cars will be interesting footnotes, not classics. Figure out what the kids today want, give them twenty years or so to make some money, and cash in.

    Any others
    I was thinking about the CRX and It must be tough to find them without rice but a 1st gen is almost impossable to find right now

    The old CVCC Civic would be a good one I did find someone with one he converted to electric and has 14 Golf Cart batteries in it

    Still that Not So Fly Yellow tho

    You can't look past the man that was in the limelight throughout the 80's and 90's and played an important role in the automobile, that man would be John DeLorean.
    For a collectible you can't beat its limited production and classic look.
    I know I'm enjoying mine!
