    Anyone think the F-body value will appreciate?

    I'm gonna try to hold onto my car for as long as I can and hopefully it will be worth a lot down the road. Obviously an ls1 f body can range from $10-20k depending on mileage and their value is going down. My dad said eventually they will become classics and will eventually reach a value above what they were originally sold for. I know that '62 corvettes in mint condition are going for $150K, does anyone think this could happen to our cars?

    well i've heard two stories, with the arrival of the new camaro, values could depreciate because we will no longer be the last of the breed, but i've also heard that the value could increase because more interest would be spraked in the camaro , and people will seek out 4th gens because they cant afford the new ones, so i think it could go either way.

    I seen here in my home town, four Trans Ams with ram air each with about 90k miles or so and they all went for top dollar. 17K and each of those cars was on the lot less than a week, one was gone in two days. They sell like hot cakes around here.

    nice dude, good luck with the install. I'm kinda leaning towards the catted y so i don't have to sweat it with emissions. i still have to research what plugs and wires i will get...


    I can see our cars going up in value and who knows if they will continue to make the new camaro, the new gto was only around for 3 years. Also, a camaro is not a trans am, so hopefully value will eventually go up
