These people are insane.

Or maybe its the people paying ridiculous amounts of money for something that will sit in a shed, and/or enable bragging rights!

Personally neither appeals to me and I'm not impressed!

If you sit down and think about it rationally what are you actually paying $100,000 for?

Something you can possibly sell for $110k in the future, maybe $200k if someone wants it that bad.

Point is how expensive are RX Mazdas and early Dattos etc etc going to be to keep on the track in the future? Even My VN parts are going up as is the price of a good complete VN.

Which is entirely understandable for genuine and/or original cars, which is where smart money goes, examples like this seem to remind me of the PT Barnham catchphrase
Contrary to popular opinion, I do have mechanical sympathy, I always feel sorry for the cars I drive.
