Re: Matching numbers
Many of the posts in this thread keep referring to , "value", "cost" "price", in short, money.
I have spent enough on my Malibu in the past 25 years to have built several LS-6's. I jokingly say that I am on a quest to spend $300,000 to have a $30,000 car. And heck, I might decide to change a bunch of stuff tomorrow. I'm a Hot Rodder.
There is a Z-16 coming up for bid at Mecum. Everybody is gushing over how beautiful it is, and it monetary worth. "If I could only afford that".
My thoughts? The current owner has grown tired of looking at it, and is going to try to cash in for a profit. Several "collectors" will bid it up, but won't pay the reserve. So the owner will have to stare at it for a while longer.
Collector cars personify the term......"something is worth what someone is willing to pay". One day, someone will flip the switch, and the last guy that paid $300,000 will get stuck with something that no one will pay the price for again.
After that happens, he might decide, "heck, I'll just drive the darned thing". Amagine that.
