For some people, nothing compares to driving a classic car of the golden age of autos. Whether you have a vintage racer like a 1963 Aston Martin or something a bit more rugged like a 1969 Dodge Charger, the feeling of taking it out on the road is indescribable.
Unfortunately, as we go deeper into the modern age, finding these antique rides is only going to be more and more difficult. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t find yourself in a classic vehicle.
Think about it like this – when people were driving their cars in the 1950s and 60s, they didn’t realize how much they would be worth in 40 years. So, imagine how much your current car may be valued in another 40 or 50 years.
But how can you know which make and model will be revered as a classic? Thankfully, according to the experts at CNET’s Car Tech Magazine, these 10 autos will probably be fetching high prices in the future.
- ‘03-06 Infiniti G35
- ‘97-03 Toyota Prius (1st Generation)
- ‘08-09 Pontiac G8
- ‘99-06 Honda Insight (1st Generation)
- ‘04-06 Scion xB
- ‘99-07 Toyota MR2 Spyder
- ‘00-09 Honda S2000
- ‘04-08 Dodge Magnum
- ‘05-11 Chrysler 300C
Even if you don’t currently own any of these cars, they are much more affordable now than when they receive their “antique” status. Also, if you pay attention to what makes these vehicles so desirable, you can figure out which new model will become a classic someday. Typically speaking, look for any design or trim that has a limited run, or any car that gets discontinued. The harder it is to find and the higher quality it is, the better it will age.
