Sometime planning ahead is a good idea. So want to buy a car now that will sure to be a classic? What would you buy?
Here is what Hagerty’s has to recommend.
1) Buick Regal, $32,535. Buick, he says, “is doing it with the Regal GS”;
I'm not feeling this one.
2) Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca Edition, $48,100. “A beast on the track, yet tame enough to drive on the street”;
That is a no brainer!!! I'll take two, one to drive now and one to put way and drive when I'm 70.
3) Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, $61,785. “Rugged, go-anywhere looks” but “performance characteristics that would earn respect on a race track”;
$62K for a Jeep? You better hope it becomes collectable...I'll pass.
4) Fiat 500 Abarth, $22,000. “Small but wicked,” and already having buyers lining up;
Sigh...I doubt it.
5) Volkswagen Golf R, $36,000. A “pocket rocket…geared towards someone who enjoys driving”;
As collectable as the VW Rabbit Diesel!!! Wait..there's more..it comes in a 4 Door too!!
6) Porsche 911, $82,100. A car to buy now and lovingly keep, “holding its value over the long-term”;
Can't argue with this one.
7) Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, $54,095. “Old school muscle is alive and well”;
Sure this one is on the list..but I'd op for the COPO race ready.
8) Nissan GTR Black Edition, $95,100. The car that today’s young videogamers will crave “years down the road after their student loans are paid off”;
I don't know.This will be collectable..like the an old Nash-Rambler.
9) Dodge Charger SRT8, $46,795. Won over by the “performance pages” on the video display that constantly update driver on performance;
Possible but I'm betting the Challenger will be the one folks will covet.
10) Audi TT RS, $56,850. “A car with global appeal (that will keep) global demand several decades down the road.”
- I can see why this one made the list. Not as Iconic as the Porsche, however.
Give me your feed back.
Thanks for reading.
