Modern cars undoubtedly look sleek and drive great, but many of them fail to match the timeless charm of classic cars. Perhaps you can start investing in such classics that only grow more valuable in time, given proper care and maintenance.
While you are at it, JMC Equipment and other experts suggest getting a Titan 2 post lift as well for easy maintenance. This also allows you to save up space since you can raise one vehicle on the lift and park another one underneath it.
Here are a few of the best classic cars you can look for this 2017 to start your classic car collection:
In the realm of Japanese imports, you can try finding a stock 1993-1998 Toyota Supra Turbo in good condition, although it may be a challenge. Back in their day, these coupes became the fastest production cars. The average price of Supra Turbo today lies around $40,000.
Moving to Europe, you can watch out for a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 600. The 600 features ageless lines and an iconic design. For a truly collectible 1971 Mercedes-Benz 600, however, you can look for one with a color specification that highlights the great features of the 600. Choose the right color specification and you will have gained a trophy vehicle.
You can jump forward in time from 1971 to the late 2000s to collect a 2007-2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The year 2011 may have only been five years ago, but this rare Porsche racehorse has achieved classic status. You can find one of these cars with around an $180,000 price tag and in great condition. Most of such cars may have likely accumulated extensive track time, however.
Do you want some American muscle? Experts expect the 1968-1970 Dodge Charger and the 1971-1972 Dodge Challenger to rise even more in value this year. Muscle cars, particularly Chargers and Challengers, continue to be popular collector’s choices.
