    Investing in classic cars is the greatest growing asset class, like all investments you have to pick the right ones.

    It is eye watering what some cars are worth at present.

    I'm just happy that my classic car is appreciating, not like the rest of my cars.

    I used to drool over a brand new R8 in the Renault dealers showroom at Wagga Wagga, along with a new R4................

    Do you think this stuff really is an investment tho?
    Disregarding the classic museum pieces like Bugatti and old Ferraris but I wonder if the only reason 70's cars are commanding these prices now is because all our generation who drooled over them as kids can now afford them but will our kids?

    I mean, my kids understand the importance of my R8G to me but I doubt they'd go out and buy one, my son would be more keen on his dream car when he was young which would be a 405 Mi16 4x4 or something like that.

    The bloke who pays 1/2 a million dollars for a GTHO today, when he dies his kids might find there's a dozen deceased estate GTHO's on the market and finding a buyer from there generation isn't happening.

    Good points. Perhaps it's more like speculation than investment.

    David,
    Very right, my son has grown up with special Renaults all his life, but his car project is a Subaru WRX Sport Wagon, an early one. And my daughter any decent modern Jap car !!!

    "Julians" and "Shoji" are the only "middle aged" people I know that are building an "our age" car. Others have an interest but not building or owning.

    Ask on here : "Who is under 40 and owns a '60s and '70s car".

    My daughter is putting a 68 Caravelle back on the road. There are some young people that are into "Vintage" things.
    Beautiful and unique cars will never go out of fashion, and does not that cover most of the cars Renault has ever produced, especially the 60s and 70s range of cars.

    Can you see the rego number and state in the original pic? I just wonder if we can track if it is still around.

    Interesting also (and understandable) that they quote R1135 prices for what is an 1134. There's not much market data on 1134's changing hands except as "project cars" (read basket cases) to my knowledge.

    That rego doesn't pop up as either current or expired (within recent history - NSW only has a limited amount of history on the current system).
