So people aren't going to know what a Camaro (or even a 1st gen.) is if they stop making Camaro's new ? ...... I mean , there are hundreds of cars that aren't made any more and all are worth many times more than they were new , they're worth thousands of times more than what they sold for new......They quit making AC Cobras and now the 427's are $200,000 as opposed to the $3,000.00 they were new and everyone knows what a Cobra is.....they stopped making Bel Aire convertibles and now they're $60,000.00 as opposed to $2,000.00 new , but still 900 out of 1000 people have never seen one. They don't make Challengers any more but they're one of the most sought after cars there are.....I guess I just don't get what you're point? People who are interested in cars are always going to find out what cars there have been in the past and end up wanting one , and enthusiasts & collectors who've already seen every model of car that's ever been made already know what everything is worth and new people coming into the automotive field and don't know anything about old cars have no bearing on values.....it boils down to the fact that no "certain model" of car is ever going decline in value because they don't make a new model of it for 16 year olds to see and get interested in....they (16yo's) don't have any money anyway and are still in the "dream stage" , the older people with the money that know what the cars were , what they sell for and how they've gone up because they follow them and their values from week to week , are the ones that set the prices by them continually trading at higher and higher prices.
1000 people who don't know what a Tucker is have no bearing on the value of a Tucker just because they only made a handfull. You'd still have people who would travel around the world to buy it. It's really very simple and the same with anything in the world , always has been and always will be , the rarer and fewer there are , the more they're worth. No matter what it is.
