In 1979 I sold a beautiful 69 Z28 Camaro for $4900., now its worth somewhere around $55k. I then bought and restored a 69 Indy Pace car Camaro. I sold it after my first daughter was born for $6500, in 1983. It now is worth around $45k. This story goes on and on with many of you, cars we have owned, now are worth a fortune. I look at it in this way too, whats out there for 35, 45, 50k+? A new Cad Escalade? Give me a break, it will be worth $2500, in 12 years, yours and my Pantera will be worth how much 10 years from now? I could have bought a new truck, but instead I got a Pantera. So I can only afford a junker to drive to work. I know at home, a Pantera is waiting for the weekend! An investment, a very fun car to drive, going up in value everyday. Everyone who sees the Pantera, people who don't know its value, think the car is worth a lot of money....and there gut feeling is right. It is expensive! When the time comes to sell my Pantera, I will not sell it for what some guy feels its worth, but for what I feel its worth. As I said to the buyers of my Camaros way back then, the value will always go up. Boy was I right! The Pantera is WAY more desireable than my old Camaros. The Panteras looks, performance, limited production, ease of repair all make it a highly desireable car.
