1971 - the last year for the 426 hemi and the wide avaialbility of the 6 pack...

All brought about by government regulations and public desire for fuel efficient vehicles...

HMMM... maybe we should buy dozens of magnum, jeep & charger SRT-8's, mothball them and in 20 years sell em for 6-8 million... not a bad return...

Who is not going to drive their SRT8's? That would be like marrying a nympho then trying to keep her chaste!

Agreed - but consider the position you would be in today had you walked into a Plymouth dealership and paid - say $50,000 for TEN 1972 CUDA vehicles - then built a storage facility, drained the fuel and properly preserved them.

Had someone with foresight done this, each vehicle that cost $5,000 would surely be worth over $5,000,000 each.

Where else can you get that type of return on your investment?

The production #'s are MUCH greater on todays cars, so the value might not appreciate so dramatically - plus the quality of the cars are better so it's more likely a higher percentage will be 'survivors' in 25 years...

But still - A shrewd investor with a spare $40,000K lying around and who doesn't neeed access to the funds for 25years could do much worse.

The lowest production (MAGNUM SRT8?) - highest performance - most optioned vehicles woul dbe the safest bets...

My point is IF gas guzzlers aren't selling - and they make less of them and the governemt decides to crack down on poor mileage vehicles (unlikely with Republican administration) then the 'investment value' improves...

Just like what happened in 1971...
