I hate it for you but I guess it was time to move on after a more or less forced sale, sorry.
I have lost count of all the cars I have owned but it is well north of twenty and my wife and I may be working on getting a new Roush RS3 automatic. We will know more Saturday when we visit our local Roush dealer. By the way, you are doing great Kits for a 26 year old so keep up the good work.

Incredible story and this is one fella that is about to cash in. Most vehicles don't appreciate like this investor's collection has though. I remember back in the day when the 1987 Buick GNX was announced speculators bought them up like kids buying candy from a candy store. They dreamed of making hundreds of thousands of dollars but their dreams were dashed as the market did not agree and they never realized their windfall. I have seen a few for sale on ebay and you can get one with very low miles for not much over what the sticker was back then. Cars in general are not very good investments as a rule but sometimes you beat the odds like this guy.
One important thing to remember though, something is only worth what someone is will to pay. That is if you are insistent on selling it. If not and the right money is not offered then keep it and you can claim it is worth whatever you want. I had a TON of money in my 2008 GO Stang but took a bath on it when I got my Hammer. It was supercharged and all and had 450 HP to the feet with $1,500.00 custom seats and a custom stereo and I got about 4K over what a stock GT would bring for my efforts. Had I not wanted my Hammer so bad I would have said to heck with that but therein lies the rub, I wanted a Hammer and that was the deal being offered take it or leave it. Needless to say I took it and the rest as they say is history.
