|6) Pontiac GTO
Certain Pontiacs continue to do well mainly the GTO that were built in the
late 60's. We saw a lot of interest in these during 2002.
|7) Shelby GT-500
1967 fastback is the one they want! But interest in '68's and
also the GT-350 is strong.
|8) Dodge Charger 500
1969 model year is the most popular one.
|9) Pontiac Trans-Am
The interest in the Firebird continues to grow. Watch out for these Pontiacs,
if our signals are correct these are going to take off - especially
the T/A from 1977-79.
|10) Cadillac Convertible
1959 and 1960 model years continue to be the most popular, but we also
saw a lot of interest in the early 50's cars (1950-54).

1969 Pontiac Firebird
1970-73 Oldsmobile Cutlass
1969 Mustang Mach 1
|6) Triumph TR6
The TR6 is a great sports car! Possibly a little modern or boxy for some
tastes, but nevertheless it delivers everything you'd expect from
a 70's British roadster. Power, solid handling, and plenty goofy
grins! It's a popular model that will continue to stand the test
of time - in short a solid investment.
|7) Mercedes 280SL
I don't know many that would argue that all the 'pagoda-roof' Mercedes
are lovely cars. Their delicate classic lines, high build quality and convertible
tops make them a surefire winner. Some feel that the 230 and 250 examples
are underpowered and that a manual gearbox is a must if you are to realize
the cars full potential. This is why the 1970-71 280SL is the one that
everyone wants and why they are worth more than their earlier siblings.
|8) Austin-Healey 3000BJ8
This is another of those cars that investors can't seem to go wrong
on. Ever since the prices jumped 2 years ago, buyers continue to line up
to pay approx $35-40,000 for an excellent example. I have to wonder though, "Should
these really be worth almost the same as a Jaguar XKE Roadster?"
|9) MG MGB
Lets face it - if you think British Sports Cars you think MGB first.
There will always be a market for these 'little British cars' and truly
excellent examples are fetching good money from willing buyers - if
you've got a good one drive it, enjoy it and hang on to it.
|10) Datsun 240Z
This was not really a surprise to me, interest in these great coupes has
begun to rise. It is in no doubt in part due to the launch of the 350Z,
from all accounts a worthy successor. Nonetheless, there has always been
a group of folks who new just how capable the early 240Z are and now
it seems like the word may finally be spreading.
