Re: LS6 Long Term Investment
I don't know, I don't care, and I'm not interested in a car for its value, or its perceived value.
YES, ABSOLUTELY, it would be nice to have some rare, desirable, high value cars. First, I cannot afford them. Second, I would have to drive them.
In 1973 I bought the 56 Corvette and did a TOTAL frame off, plus several upgrades. It was a pure show queen---------------AND IT WAS NO FUN BECAUSE I HAD TO KEEP IT INSIDE AND PROTECTED!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY, a little at a time, I began to drive it and discovered how cool it was.
So after all these years, I have more cars--------AND I DRIVE, AND I SOMETIMES GET A THRILL FROM ABUSING THEM! Value is a NON issue for me.
Our 70 conv is just a Malibu, but except for the engine, which is not a killer BB, but a healthy SB400, The M22W whines, it now has virtually everything that would be on an SS454. Starts quick, runs great. It is a go anywhere, any time car. Starts and runs great, air cond blows cold on R12. It pulls the jet boat to the lake and everything works just like NOS. And it gets thumbs up anywhere we go in it.
Nope, I don't care about value. Functionality, dependability and practicality are what is important.
What will it be worth in 10-20years? I could care less!
