Another European classic for sale - how much?

Recommended Posts

EsCos currently for sale at £47,000, almost a quarter a million dhs. I remember these being available for £7-8,000. Sure missed out on that boat!

Since the people with too much money got bored investing in wine or paintings, they ended up buying old timers and collector item cars which led to this craze.

Classic cars are a good investment. Especially modern classics. Even crapppy stuff like Morris marinas are starting to make money. I love the idea that people are starting to appreciate cars which weren’t properly appreciated but I hate the fact that petrolheads with a genuine interest are being priced out of the market. I remember growing up and you could buy an AE86 (the tofu delivery car) for £800 (4,000 dhs), now that car will cost you £20,000 (100k dhs). It’s incredibly hard for young people to get into the car scene now. Sure, there’s watching YouTube videos and knowing every fact about every car but most cars are unobtainable to most young people unless they have 6 masters degrees and a 50k job or a rich daddy. The only option is to finance a new Golf R. The new generation aren’t less into cars, they are just being priced out of it. Modifications are discouraged because it affects resale value. Individuality is suppressed. And that makes me sad.

That's not even a scrap price for a half cut now. I bought a half cut for 7k after tons of reference and negotiations
