    Gallardos have gone up. They were nudging $100k for early autos.

    Yes, been noticing that with Gallardos myself for a long time. Think that's about the base of the market for them too.

    Easy to play this game for a weekender. Far harder to do it for a daily.

    This is not really in the "daily driver" category, but I'm wondering about early Gallardos that are now 15 or so years old and are the cheapest Lamborghinis on the market these days. They seem to be at $130-150k now; is that likely to be the bottoming out of their depreciation curve?

    Speaking to a mate of mine who sold a mint E3 for huge money (to me who remembers these being a max $20k car LOL). New group of people buying imports is <30yo overseas student who has plenty of money to burn. Paying $50k for an old Lancer is nothing when your other car is a MacLaren.

    Yep, I watched that and then remembered I’m buying it because it’s a good car and not an investment!

People lucky enough to have got one of (potentially) a small number of GR Yaris' (Aus delivered, likely between 1350-2000?) have the potential to have a future classic in 10-20 years time. Its a similar style to a STI or Evo (maybe even more special than these due to its uniqueness to its namesake), its made at a time when very few other manufacturers are making similar cars, its manual, suited to drivers, has a shit ton of hype at launch with a very likely limited global run.

    I'm going to keep it basically forever, at least 10 years, probably double that. While I'm going to drive it fairly regularly, its not going to have more than 5000-7000km per year put on it, I'm also probably not going to mod it all that much.
    Will it be worth the same or more than what I paid for it in 2/5/10/20 years time? No idea, maybe? Will it be this generations evo/sierra cosworth/integrale? Maybe?

    As I mentioned, I didn't think it would have the hype it has, I didn't think it would be as cheap as we got it for and I didn't think I'd have the means to buy it. Am I glad I did and am I stoked that it may actually be an investment that pays itself over the next period of my life, fucking oath. In saying all this, I've got absolutely no idea how to care for a car like this. Apart from garaging it, keeping it well maintained and (possibly) as original as possible, is there anything else I should do?

    p.s. I know I should probably stop talking about this car but its hard to contain the excitement....

    Looking at one of these (Meg) today. The prices have had a bit of a Covid bump - but looking more like a few grand compared to the start of the year, not $10k increases for high mileage shitheaps.

    I've been wanting a fun weekender under 10-15k but fucked if you can get anything for that. I'm in no hurry so I can wait out the inflated prices, but my concern is that in 6-12 months everyone who paid high won't want to sell at a loss, and everyone who's held onto them won't want to sell at 10k when they could have gotten 15k, so prices will stay artificially high.
