That is the right attitude. I keep them because I like them.

I could see the value for most of them falling. Here's my thoughts on this matter. With the advent and the pushing by most in society that gasoline/diesel engines are old,dirty, and unhealthy for people and the environment plus the push for electric vehicles, I think only a few will hold value or some value but, I could see them becoming just art pieces eventually due to these circumstances and people not wanting to work on them minus the select few. Myself personally, I have what I have for personal enjoyment and value.

I just think the modern muscle will be the new thing and the older Mopars being forgot about. Take it how you want but that is just my 2 twocents

But that's because there are new muscle car offerings that give us what 60-70 muscle cars once uniquely claimed. Why would anyone in our generation want to rebuild, scour for parts, and pour money into older cars when you can go to any of the Big 3 and buy a car turn key with warranty that is nicer, safer, faster, and better supported? For those of us tied emotionally to these projects (maybe your dad had one years ago or in my case you had one sitting needing attention), we're a different situation. But those coming into the sport fresh? No chance.

Investors buy these cars to make money. They collect them for the eventual flip. But if demand isn't gonna be there, they are better off buying a new Demon, wrapping it in plastic, and selling it in a decade. In twenty years the car market will change again to EV, but some portion of the market will continue to drive demand for things no longer offered.

I self admittedly get too emotionally attached to cars to ever be in the sport for profit.

Every older generation has said nobody will want these cars and they'll all be worthless. Still waiting on that to happen. In 10 years, I wouldn't be shocked at the ability to manufacture one off pieces a lot easier than it is today. The limiting factor for a lot of mopar's is the inability to source all the parts you need compared to a ford/chevy. Old cars aren't going anywhere. The market will be strong for the rest of our lifetimes. All of you screaming that nobody will be alive to work on them, you realize that increases the demand for functional proper pieces right? Only driving up the prices more as driving or owning becomes an even bigger status symbol. Most saying the hobby is going to die are the same ones sitting on hoards of [censored] they'll never sell or saving it for someone that will never restore haha.

I still think we're the minority and I think there will still be a minority but, could see it shrinking over time or shifting to other later model cars. Just looked at what has happened to Fox Body Mustangs and the 90s Impala SS cars. The other thing that will play at hand will be government rules and regulations in the future. I think some cars will hold value regardless but, with the way things are looking currently it's a toss up. Lots of guys around here aren't really interested in cars and the guys that have maintained these cars seems to have become smaller.

Just another thought. I don't think the desire for older cars will go away but it will change. I for one am modding all my cars to EFI. Why? I have noticed that the number of folks that know how to work with carbs, set timing, etc has shrunk by leaps and bounds. So, my boys will inherit cars that they don't need to mess with. Also, every gen seems to have cars they like. While they might not necessarily be our musclecars, there are loads of 2005 and up Mustangs and 2008 Challengers out there. Just like the Fox bodies, kids will grow up and fix these cars of their youth up.

I think the market long ago peaked - I've been in this since the late 80's and bought a few of my cars before it got crazy (68 Charger for $3800). I don't think you'll see money of old but rare is rare and there are still kids today that love these cars. I've never been in it for $$ so I don't much care.
