    I think for now they are going down, like any other car. If you keep the miles down and keep the car in great condition, eventually the value will go up. I personally think the Trans Ams are holding their value very well for a GM car. If indeed 02 is the last year they make the car then eventually it will become a classic. I am personally keeping keeping my car because it is a fun sports car that I can even appriciate down the road when I am older. My Father had a 67 Firebird when he was younger and got rid of it. He now kills himself realizing how much it could be worth today if kept it in great condition. The value of the car is really up to you. I think loving and cherishing the car for what it means to you is worth a lot more than what Kelly Bluebook says.

    The value is really up to you. Keep it, love it and hopefully to a true fan it will be priceless. I know mine is to me.

    The beat up ones will drop of course, but the good condition one will hold a great price. They are getting closer to the price of Vettes of the same year if that says anything.

    the day a bird goes for 50k in 15 years is the day i eat my own shit. every mile we put on these cars drops the price...along with every mod.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    shady has a point. the garage queens will be worth more finacially more in 15 years, where as the modded monsters will simply hold dear to it's owners heart

    Yep, 70s cars that are garage queens are goin for lots with low miles, but the same car running 9s would go for less than half the price. Even if the body are in great shape
