what are some cars people are attempting to get their hands on in the future?

I think about this every day. not new cars really (cause they are easy to get, walk in dealer, sign the paper, drive away) but some older stuff

e.g.

some cars I want to get in the next couple years are :

-01-04 z06 or FRC to build
-79-84 (preferably 79-81) Caddy coupe deville

there is def alot more but I think these 2 would be my first choice

Old S10 or Jeep commanche.

Small, lightweight rwd jap car with a turbo V8 to scare me. Like a s2000 or even miata with a wild swap.

I have a fondness for old supercharged 03-06 AMGs that depreciated like crazy.

OG Viper GTS

Evo 9 with tasteful mods. Drove one a while back and it was fun.

Realistically, a clean 03-05 Cadillac CTS-V or a 2007 Volvo V70 R for commuting.

Almost had an 05 e55 Amg . But it constantly breaking loose even at 60+ and the problem is since itís an auto u have no control over how itís gonna come loose and if u keep traction on it cuts the power so ur merging and he car is like break checking itself lol

I think since they keep making trucks bigger and bigger, that s10's will become more valuable.


Personally I'd love any older Cadillac. I want to resto mod one of those big boats and just go cruising

I want a 1992 Fleetwood Brougham - one of those big 4 door boats that can fit a dozen bodies in the trunk. Plan to pimp it out - big audio system, worked LS3 with nitrous... Going to be hilarious to drive around something so big that hauls ass. I was even contemplating putting chandeliers on the hood like in "Escape from New York".

Hagerty says 4th gens are on the rise. Craigslist shows the market is thin if you are hunting desirable or clean low mile examples.
