We’re working on finishing up ACC’s 50th issue this week, which is full of information out of Scottsdale, Kissimmee, and beyond. Looking at all these sales got me thinking about how the market has shifted over the past few years, both in terms of prices and the kinds of cars being offered.
What’s the best buy right now, and how has that changed from, say, 2015?
I could come up with a handful of different answers on my own, but I’d like to know what you think about it.
So in honor of our 50th issue, The $50k Challenge will be our Readers’ Forum question.
Let’s say you have $50k to spend in the market right now. You can buy whatever car you want — but only one car. It can be less than $50k, but not more. What’s the best buy right now, in your opinion? Justify it however you want: return on investment, fun factor, etc. I want to know what you’re buying with that budget, what condition it’s in, and why you’ve picked it.
Is it a glossy C10 Resto-Mod? A needy LS6 Chevelle? A driver-level Road Runner? The best low-miles 5.0 Mustang you can find? A used Hellcat?
Let’s talk about it in the comments below, or send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday, Feb 3. Look for your comments in the next issue of American Car Collector!
