Manual E92's especially.
I bought new and still drive my 2000 single cab Silverado. Oddly, people have been wanting to buy it recently. Not sure why but if they ever offer enough I'll sell it and invest in my 70 C-10.
I came to post the Toyota FJ Cruiser.
Last year I paid pretty much the same as what it cost new is 2012.
They got hot suddenly. Probably a lot of people that wanted them back in high school and now going back to pick them up.
Or they were big Ice fans
I can’t believe how much FJs are selling for, yet they are discontinued and Ford is copying them. Are they too expensive to make and get a profit?
And they'll do electric swaps just like they do LS swaps.
1st model of Prius, which does not look like the current version at all.

Honda CRX and '01 Prelude, Mazda Miata, Suzuki Samurai, '02 VW Cabriolet, Mercury Marquis
Some of these are no longer "cars of today" but should increase in value.
PBCounty named one. Excursion is a great call. Especially the diesel powered 4wd model.
2006 Zo6 Corvette. Timeless classic Corvette looks. The newer generations are all too ugly. And the early Zo6's walked the walk.
2003-2004 Mach1 and Cobra Mustangs. With some work, these cars come alive. Excellent sleepers. 600hp from the 4.6 is Childs play. Just cut me a check.
Alex Zanardi spec. Honda NSX's. Special tuned suspension brings a fine handling car to a nation that has no idea how suspension should feel.
Ford GT. 1st gen. The fact that these are some of the most absurdly bad sports cars ever made, is kinda endearing. Like a modern day Delorean. Prototype had pushrod suspension, and a MSRP under $100k. Boy did they F that up.
First Gen Vipers and Viper GT's. Later Vipers lacked the style and ''feel'' of the originals. Everything special about the first gen was lost, until the ACR models came out. Aside from Caterham, this might be the last decent roadster ever sold in the US.
This is a possibility, Toyota Tundra is switching over to a V6 hybrid next year I think. No more V8s.
Look the word up. NONE!
I think any 2 door car. Anything with a manual transmission.
Manual transmissions on sports cars will add and are currently adding a nice premium. Especially, cars from the last 12-15 years with low production numbers. Ferrari 599's and Lamborghini Murcielago LP640's are seeing a huge premium over their paddle shift models. The Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV in a manual could fetch $1 million at auction. I think only 2 exist in the US. Their pull is in being "the last of the manual V12's". If Ferrari or Lamborghini offers something gated like Porsche did after initially cancelling them, then those will tank in value.
I like the 2 doors.
But my 4 door is super useful as a “family” car.
Luckily I have the manual. I do wish mine had the winter package. I would really like heated seats.
Anything with a straight four or six, carburetor, no electronics or computer, manual transmission, crank windows, no power steering or brakes, cast iron block, you get the picture.
Air cooled is also acceptable.
Same. My 2002 Silverado single cab short bed still going strong with 354K miles. Have a 2018 Silverado but not selling my 2002. Parts getting really cheap on it too. A lot of people asking about if I will sell it but nobody coming with any real money yet. Probably won't even then. It's wroth more to me than what anyone would pay for it. Plus it's my dog Sara's truck now. She loves that truck and would break her heart if I sold it.
Any new car that lasts 25 years will be a miracle, not just a classic.
It's called 'planned obsolescence'.
2013 - 2014 mustang gt. 1st gen coyote 5.0 motor , only two years to have this front end and tail lights. Last years of the solid rear axle also. Has the old school fog lights in the front grille. Mine is the six speed manual and suped up a little bit and just feels raw / unrefined when putting power to the wheels. Very fun to drive. The looks just are retro cool with the S197 mustangs ( 2005 - 2014). I am / was a big fan of the 80’s fox bodies and they are starting to definitely become collectible , just trying to find a clean one and get the power out of the old 5.0’s to even get close to the coyote is gonna cost some money. Heck , most foxes are simply drag cars now. My buddy has a 2019 gt , and it’s a fantastic ride and fast , just more refined is all I can say , and a little more euro looking with the body lines. I think the 4 valve S197’s in the next decade or two will be the equivalent of the late 60’s and mid to late 80’s mustangs as far as people wanting them. Fun factor and smiles per gallon are a 10/10 IMHO
