Judging by the amount of cars you buy, plenty  :D

In a few years time I reckon you will look like a genius for selling that Dino for $310k
I've got heaps of "could have, would have, should have stories" too:

- the 275 GTB/4 that I sold for $425k in 1995 that is now worth about $5 million
-the F50 that I sold in 2007 for what I paid for it plus a bit that is now worth about $1.5 million more
-the McLaren F1 that I should have traded my F50 and 360 N-GT on. Couldn't see the sense in having $2 million in one car.          Now it is worth something more than $10 million  :doh:

- the 250 LM that my old man should have bought for $450k in the mid 1980's. Ralp Lauren bought it and it is now worth what?
$25 million?

I could go on.......

You can only make what you reckon is the right decision based on the facts at the time *shrug*

Scott, you keep going on about the bubble bursting, but looking at the figures you mention it seems each successive bubble is larger than the last.

+1. Any profit is a good profit.  And you probably will never get another run like the one you did with no numberplates. :)

I still owe you big time for that.

Fark ,I am well over $100K on purchase price at this stage.

But it really isn't about the money.

I just know these things will be super hard to own in the future.
why the confusion?

I suspect that the values of the cars mentioned in Scott's post would be largely immune from the bubble bursting. They're all blue chip collectibles. The stuff that's gunna get smashed will be the Dinos, early 911s, 190SLs, etc. in other words, the (relatively speaking) mass produced second tier stuff.  250LMs, McLaren F1s etc are rare and precious cars.

FWIW, a 991 GT3 RS could never replace a 997.2 GT3 RS.

I have space for another 3 cars at my beach house which has a full secured lock up garage and alarm.

So maybe that is the answer.
