    Hers a modern day classic. 2003 E39 540i m sport. The so called "baby M5" it's essentially an m5 with 100 less hp and much better reliability. In fact is rarer than an M5. Only 1200 were imported and less than half were 6 sp manual trans(like mine). IMG_20200725_164007125.jpg IMG_20200725_163950853_HDR.jpg

    Thanks. Yep it's a blast! I like it more than my 2010 335 that has about 150 more hp.

    Basically, any Mustangs that survive their owners.

    Maybe the Chevy SS, a 4-door sedan with a Corvette engine? Don

    The Sienna is going all hybrid. The Tundra isn't changing (at least next year).

    I wonder what happened to Walter's Aztek after filming? Probably the only Aztek worth something.

    2009-2015 1st Gen R8s with dual clutch transmissions. The body lines are beautiful. Only 6,500 were sold in the USA. Both V8 and V-10 versions. Coupes and spyders (Convertibles) The V-10s were extremely rare. The V-10 5.2 ltr and transmission shared with Lamborghini's Huracan and Gallardo, is capable of 1700 plus hp with a twin turbo kit. Stock its 550 hp AWD but a simple tune brings it to 595 hp.

    Probably none unless you covert them to an electric car. Gasoline and diesel will be nonexistent.

    In many cases - it was the vehicle that teenage boys lusted after but could no way afford to buy, because they were in high school still.

    Then as they get older and more financially set - they have a house and a couple new cars - they think back to the days when they were 13 - and really wanted that GTO, Mustang, Chevelle SS or Challenger - and now they can afford to buy one and have it resorted.

    What cars do teenage boys lust after right now?? I can't think of many - but it seems like Civics and cars like Mazda3 maybe.

    Sure the super high end cars will still be wanted - but that is a little different - at least to me.

    But there is a 50/50 chance the vintage item many desire in 2035 will be an iPhone 6S+ or a Motorola Razr (updated to 158G with the latest AI update of course)

    Dodge Demon, a couple of the Mustang options will be very desireable.

    The longer I keep my '02 Tacoma single cab 4X4, the sooner I think some will think it's a classic. I occasionally get offers from folks who want to buy it. I bought it new and plan to be buried in it. :)

    Yeah, those Audi R8s are flat out gorgeous! Nothing quite like them on the road today. Would love to have one of those for sure!
