Every few decades, the classic car market experiences a boom—and then, occasionally, a correction. The thing is, over the last few years, the market has been increasing in value like never before, with “blue chip” classics helping to lift similar models from their marque.
We’ve heard numerous stories from both friends and colleagues about how they’ve experienced the market’s boom as owners of a vehicle that has risen significantly in value. Some cars, like the Ferrari Dino 246 GT, has more than tripled in value over the last decade.
At that point, do you sell your car, drive it less, or at least worry about it more frequently? Not all classics have seen that much of an increase in value, either; in fact, some American classic cars have seen decreases in value over the last few years.
We’d like to know: did the market—good or bad—encourage you to sell your car?
