3.5L Straight six apparently.

Saw one in the weekend. Reckon it'd be worth a bit more than that. Love it how they're advertising a "heater demister" as like it's more than standard

I can see there was a Honda Civic worth $400 more than the Torana, bit different to todays collector’s market.

I actually sat my driving licence test in a Civic like the one for sale in 1981 and bought my first car a 76 Corolla panel van for $2600

Think this is the cheapest 57 I've seen for a while.

Its been asked before... but things have changed in the $ world

Is the value of these cars going to drop due to lowering demand?

Example kiddies when they get older wont be excited by an A9X/GTHO as they would a Shitty Yaris\Gold\Fiesta etc GT in 40yrs time, not that any of them will still be running

You're right on the money, just like I didn't want a model A
The next generation are already buying what they want - Rice rockets  :laugh:

I think good example rare cars will always hold their value but we have seen some very inflated values on 60's & 70's cars up to this point.
You don't want to get stuck with a "Tribute" car (or faker as we used to call them)
A9X's & GTHO's will always be worth good money but maybe not the silly money they are asking at the moment (They are much rarer than anything out of the US)
If your not prepaired to stand behind our troops
Then feel free to stand in front of them
