The prices are sky rocking this year and the commentators are commenting that they have never seen the increases and are setting records. It seems when the economy is a bit shaky and inflation is out of control, prices go up. Better investment than stocks and bonds?? 6 figures for the Camaros, Chevelles and Corvettes as well as others.

Been kicking around selling my car for a bit. It's a nice car, but it doesn't get driven much anymore as my daughter was always my copilot. These days it just seems to get pulled in and out of the shop when I'm working on another project. Sad, but I have only driven it about 20-30 miles since COVID hit. I may start to clean it up . The worse that can happen is I change my mind and have a clean car.

So does anyone know why Barret Jackson is not on motortrend anymore? Do they no longer exists?

I was watching the Mecum Kissimmeee Auction earlier and LOL... there may be some truth to the investment theory. Several really high end cars went for nearly a million bucks each and that Yellowstone National Parks tour bus went for well over a million IIRC. The original Shelby GT 350R prototype is truly unique and the bidding went up to $3.7 million when it sold. Unbelievable. There's some serious money being put down for these cars & trucks and I'm wondering how many new owners are people from the financial community, hedge fund guys or whatever.
And yeah... 1st Gen Camaro's are doing quite well at these auctions, have you seen any selling for less than $50K at any auction recently? And its not just numbers matching cars, the restomods and pro touring cars are bringing just as much (if not more sometimes) as many of the numbers matching cars with the exception of the COPOs. It seems like a good looking '69 Camaro restomod can bring between $50K and $100K depending on the list of mods.

I recorded all the televised shows. Although I have not watched them all as of yet, my observation is that that most 1969 Z28's are going for $135-$150k. I saw one yellow Z sell for $80k. That was the lowest priced Z that I saw so far. Good to be a 1969 Z28 owner today!

I have been watching too, glad I'm not in the market to buy!
Prices are really strong for sure, we all need to make sure our insurance coverages are up to the values. There are 58 1969 Camaro's (one of the below listings is a "door") at Kissimmee this year, the least expensive was about $48K and it moves north of $60K pretty fast as you go down the list. Second to the last column is "High Bid" and didn't sell, far right column is "Sold" price. Click the links to see them.
I enjoyed watching the collection of 69's go across the block and seeing the MANY quality cars there.

Looks like the 69's continue to bring the most money. Many of those high dollar originals have plenty of documentation, especially the collector that had all those 69's. I believe he had the 11 LS6 70 Chevelles as well. they were saying it was the most in numbers and % of Corvettes as well. Mustangs were bring very high dollars as well. . . . . .the biggest seller was a 65 GT R at 3.5m.

Thanks for sharing!
We see here in Europe crazy prices as well. Mustangs are higher price than Camaro's.

Slowly our cars are becoming unaffordable to buy as hobby car by the commun people.

I wonder about the low dollar cars. 1978 Camaro's. 1980 Malibu's. I see some nice cars still going for low money, in my region. Would these be following the trend as well?
I am not a fan of these models but sure there are some truly well modified fun to drive cars...

And who knows how the market will behave in the future.

Is it just me or do the average collector cars seem to be priced around what a new one costs? A new 2SS Camaro is around $50k, about what an average first gen! I am not comparing to a frame off all numbers matching RSZ-28 with docs. JMO

I agree, seems like a nice entry level anything is going to be about $25-30K and go up fast from there.
I sold a couple in 2020 and bought my Camaro fall of 2020. One of my buddies says "you could go by a used low mileage ZL1 for that much"! My reply was "why would I want to do that?" :)

Bruce... Here's the picture I got from a friend who went to Kissimmee... he said the logic seems to be that if you spend $65K to $75K on a new Camaro, Mustang, or Hellcat, what's it going to be worth in 3-5 years? Half that? Buy a 1st Gen Camaro or Mustang for $75K and its probably a well-restored/equipped turnkey and has more than that invested in it. And in 3-5 years worse case its still worth what you bought it for, best case it goes up some percentage. Kinda makes $en$e.
