    Will the 4th gen camaros (z and ss) ever obtain the value of the 1st gens?
    Im a younger member and hear the stories from my dad about how he wishes he wouldve kept his 68 and 69 maros. I always wonder if its worth holdin on to my '00 SS so i wont be telling my kids the same thing someday. Just wanted to see what everyone thought of the whole topic.

    I treat my 02 Z like I treated my 1st 69 SS back in 73: I ride it like a $2 dollar Amsterdam whore....

    General answer...no
    Specific answer...maybe
    For instance: The 35th anniversary model, if it was completely stock and prestine might fetch a few bucks from a collector in a Barrett Jackson Auction someday. Any Berger Camaro would most certainly do well also. A well preserved SS convertable might get a resonable amount of dollars if it was well optioned, same goes for any SS Camaro with all the correct factory optioned SLP goodies.
    But nothing like your father's or my '69 Camaro would get today if I would have kept it either, so I know how your dad feels.

    my guess is you would have to time capsule a low mi high optioned car to see any $ gains. but if you factor in that 20 or 30 yrs from now car makers will be so economy drivin and maybe geared to make less and less of our type of cars may make the forth gen cars a little more desirable. in my opinion if the new challenger is made with only a short amount of production years a high optioned low mi car like that maybe you would see the same trend as the past.

    no, I think the price of our cars is going to drop a lot whenever the new camaro comes out... especially if the new camaro has a long run.

    2000's are not the rarest of the years. 96' would be the rarest 4th gen SS and '97 next. I think '98 and '99 had less production SS's than 2000 as well.

    Will these 4th gens ever be collectible and have good value, maybe, time will tell.

    Will 4th gens ever have the desired collectibility of 1st gens? Absolutely not and anyone that ever thinks a typical 4th gen would be as collectible as a typical 1st gen is sadly mistaken. Some of the special 4th gen editions will be highly collectible someday, the Dick Harrels, Bergers, GMMG and the ZL1s will be highly collectible someday.

    Why wouldnt our cars be worth a lot in the future, lets say if they will still be in mint condition 20 years or so from now?

    There are so many factors, but it's not just the Camaros, todays Mustangs, Chargers, and so on will never have that same collectability as their forefathers. Can you say COPO?

    1999 T/A WS6 Convertible

    Let's ask the collector question again...

    Hey guys,

    I thought I would re-ask the 4th gen collectibility question ask and also ask for advice.

    My '99 T/A [90K miles] M6 convert is at the body shop getting de-dinged and detailed. It is stock [except for frame connectors] and in damn nice shape.

    I am not under pressure to sell it but it does take up space BUT it is awesome to drive on the one nice day we get in Minnesota.

    Should I sell it? Or saran wrap it, Will 4th gens have "collector value" some day?

    Comments appreciated...

    I'm still of the opinion that only special edition 4th gens might have collectibility.

    Still riding my 02 4th gen like a $2 whore here... Bought a 98 to DD.

    Look at what the big 3 are doing now: LSA ZL1 Camaro, Mustang GT500 and Shelby, Dodge SRT8 cars.

    The muscle cars of today are far superior to what was available during the 60's and early 70's. What the older cars have is nostalgia. That's why I still have one.
    67 Camaro: K-K + 797-z (look it up), 454/Th400/4.10 12-bolt = 6mpg, PS/PDB/PW tilt, tach, gauges...

    2005 Corvette LS2/M6 Magnetic Red Metallic (What else would it be?) w/ Cashmere interior

    2002 Z28: NBM/Tan, MTI smooth lid, smooth bellows, !AIR, !cats, 1-3/4" QTP SS LT's, 2-1/2" TD's with X-pipe, MagnaFlows dumped at axle, custom welded SFC's, MidWest Chassis body mount adjustable T/A, 3400 stall, 3.23 gears (was 2.73). Tuned: 343rwhp/357rwt (before TD's). Best: 12.559 @ 108+, 1.73 60' @ 3500' DA w/MT ET Street DR's.

    Carbon footprint? CLOWN SHOE!
