I'm with Joe though. I'm not selling anything so not worried about it. If anything I'll be buying more in the future. If I have a garage full of worthless cars when I die, I'll still die happy either way
Both of my kids grew up around them and got to drive some of the rarest cars Pontiac ever built, but have no interest whatsoever in them.

Stick with solid lifter 4 speed original paint documented cars and you'll be more than ok... I haven't seen these take a hit AT ALL.

Restoration, paint and part prices are definitely not going down, paint is especially rising in price by leaps and bounds. I have to laugh when I see the annual "are prices declining?" thread as they sure are not for the cars I want. Have you tried to buy a restored '70 SS El Camino lately? Holy cow. And late 70's and mid '80's muscle cars are really hot.
You need to moveThere was a Butternut yellow 69 SS that went for somewhere around 15K US.It looked great and didn't last very long.

This one would be 26K US.

This one would cost you about 15K US.


https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars...ationFlag=true

About 26K US for this one.

1969 Z/28's are not going down in price from what I have seen. They have been pretty steady.

And they seem to be helping pull the nice 68 & 70's Z's up with them

Just attended Grant Miller's classic car auction in Lock Haven, PA. Prices on 60's muscle were VERY strong. '61 Chevy 4 speed convertible (327/300 - black/red) sold for $135k!

58-62 B body verts are super strong and have been for years. If the top goes down and it has tail fins really look out...

It is the most asked one of the most asked questions I get. I think unfortunately a lot of people answer the question based on truly little to no REAL knowledge but instead based on a very small sample size that see. Things like listings on eBay. Or Craigslist and that's just listings not sales. Then there are the mecums and BJ's and again, just what YOU SEE from a far. Not a large sample size. One or two cars that SHOULD bring bigger money but don't. but consider you are not always privy to what the car looks like in person. What knowledge the real buyers found out that you didn't know?? There's so many variables in market price too. From my view point and the niche market I'm dealing with. Just 66/67 SS Chevelles., things are and have been STABLE. Not up nor down but then I'm talking about fully restored and very correct cars!! Detailed and Quality. Quality built too!! Run of the mill cars. Driver quality are a dime a dozen and they are all over the map in price. But the really good stuff!! Still bringing very strong money. You just don't always see it happen.

Just my 3 cents
Mike

For me it is simple. I go to a cruise in and the average age is 60 and I am one of the youngest guys there. Same thing with the swap meets. It is the coming demographic shift and sadly the writing is on the wall.

Had my 1969 Camaro very out last night for an ice cream with my wife. 20 years ago a trip to get a cone was a 45 minute or longer adventure, due to all the people who stopped to chat and ask about the car. Last night no one even gave it a glance because they have no emotional connection to the car in any way.

Anybody here seeing flocks of younger people at the shows checking out gen 1 muscle cars?

If so where do you live?
