Oh, Damn... I actually DO have the money. I've been saving to buy a house for the past 10 years...

I bring this up because, a few years ago, Toyota 2000GTs were selling for $100,000. I had the money. But I had a goal to buy a house. If I had bought a 2000GT a few years ago for $100k, I could have sold it for $1million or so today. Then buy a house; cash.

So, do I buy a GTR? Will it appreciate to $1million in a few years, too???

You can live in a car but you can't drive a house :lol:

You'd need to get better fitting wheels, refurbish the badges, a proper detail and keep it locked away in the warm and dry and out of harms way. Then you won't get the enjoyment from it.

Sure there are others available in Japan for less if you can get them out of the country, but any top end JNC will be an appreciating asset if looked after and honoured.

having been a car guy for the past 40+ years... I've seen ups and downs... "investing" in collector car futures is a tough game, and really should only be done if you ONLY see them as investments. Once the car bug bites, emotions can get in the way, and cloud your judgement.

(my own personal experiences - having owned a 66 Hertz Shelby Mustang for $1000, passing on a Aston Martin DB6 superlight for $2500... and finally passing on a 1970 AAR Cuda - $2200)


As to this car worth $200G... seems to have a few flaws a $200G car shouldn't have...
Quote:
It has had one repaint in it’s original color, had the driver’s seat reupholstered to a very correct standard, had an antenna fitted to the passenger side rear quarter and currently sits on a set of period Watanabe rims. It previously had an aftermarket stereo fitted, which we’ve removed and which has left a space in the center console.


Mind you... I have no problem with original Skylines, I'm not a fan, but I don't need to be a fan to understand its value.

I would buy it if I were you. In fact, I want to get a HELOC out or something. But it is on ebay so it may go fast, I can't act that fast.

If you do get it, can I come see it, since I'm in LA, too?

I don't think this is worth 200k. An example of a car which is worth 200k when I went to Rocky Auto two years ago they had just got in a KPGC110 GT-R, one owner, never restored, low ks. THAT was worth 200k!
