    From my poking around lately some things I have noticed

    1: Pretty much any manual pre BA Falcon is going up fast. Even pov pack AUs are highly sought after and hard to find in manual. Xr6/Xr8 from EA-AU are $12,000up. Cheapest manual AU on carsales is an xr6 180,000kms for $19500. Automatics are still worthless for most models.

    2: VN-VX SS and HSV all seem to be increasing in value and difficult to find. I've been keeping an eye out for a Tiger Mica VT SS for ages now and haven't seen a single one for sale anywhere. Already seen some VF models more than retail.

    3: I have seen cheap GC8 era WRXs popping up from $6000 but they are molested units with high Ks.

    The only thing against the later HSV stuff is the numbers they were produced in. There was something like 10 times as many VT clubsports then there were VS. So for VE and VF there was probably multiple times as many again.

    I couldn't think of anything more boring than a stock one. The r32 GTS-T was a much more engaging car. Although similar to a completely stock r32 GTR, people may fall over themselves to pay a big price for less fun. I still don't get it.

    Things have certainly changed since the 60-70 classics where it's only a few rare models where people will pay silly prices for "matching numbers " type cars...otherwise tastefully modified is fine.

    That seems a good buy?

    Work colleague has an immaculate gc8 Sti I'm not sure if it's 2 or 4dr. But has less than 30k on the odo. I think he takes it out a few times a year to do a run then goes back in the shed on stands.

    My bro sold his 4 door GC8 Sti earlier this year for more than he paid for it 10 years ago. He was pretty stoked.

    If you could find an unmolested Subaru Liberty - Blitzen - not sure if they will increase in value

    Late 20's early 30's all want them. Guys in their 40's who had one still pine for a good one. I see a lot of chicks in their late teens ealry 20's in my neighbourhood drive them. I think that a unmodded one will be a hard find in a few years.

    I also think anyone who had a R33 GTSt when they were anewish thing will want a good unmodded one. Those things are getting rare with every teenager finding that HICAS on a bend in the wet is a reciepe for a life and death situation.

    The S203 STI recently hit the SEVS list. I'd be looking for a minty low km example to bring in

    2 door STIs definitely will do the best. It's the only one I'd hold for investment. Buy one now if you are keen [Optional text: but still not as good as an r32 GTR for less $$$.]

    Followed by RA,s Spec C's and other limited STIs.

    My 2004 JDM STI will do OK, but too many of them around to be an investment.

    I've got a 95 WRX that I still think is worth fuck all but the pre 99/00 WRX are becoming rare. 95 wrx wagons like mine were Au was 150. Not sure on others but even RS Liberty etc are becoming rare.

    You're probably best off picking up a good 350z or 200sx for under $20k if you can find one (6 months ago you could).. A standard Gc8 is probably going back up the curve, but I don't even think is still that great.

    GFC .. S15 have gone off the charts.. some bloke on here was selling one for 10k a few months ago too https://performanceforums.com/forums...sale-melbourne - would'a bought in a flash too.. just have no room.

    Find an EVO ?
