Discuss the emerging neo-classic market of 80s/90s/00s cars. Post pics, get angry about prices, and yell at clouds.
I am not actually going to bitch because I don't give a shit about cars....I'm after those 8mpg old SUVS. That Said anytime I can use pic related I'm in.
>>24002665i don't even have the energy to be angry anymore, things are so beyond fucked and i gave up ages ago
>>24002665This is my 2000 MR2 Spyder. One just sold for $16k on Bring A Trailer with 2k less miles. $18.5k I know what I got
>>24002665tfw clean low mile STIs are going for 25-30k, and I still wont sell mine
>>24002730GD STIs have bottomed out and are on the uptick for sure. Buy NOW.
>>24002736not round here, what I paid would have gotten me something with 100k more miles, so glad I picked er up on the east coast
>>24002713>16k for thisHoly shit
All I want is a manual RWD weekend car for less than $10kI didn't even make enough money to buy a second car until the last couple of years, feels bad man
>>24002779That will easily get you a nice Miata or S13. Just need a little bit of patience and luck.
>>24002744oh, did i say $16k? I meant almost $18k https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2001-toyota-mr2-14/
>>24002665this is a good idea, because my 2000 Toyota is not welcome in the Classic Toyota thread. basto
Doing some maintenance work to this 240 to get it ready for daily duties
>>24003518Oh LOOK WHO IT IS, mister OEM PLUS PERFECTION.
>>24002665A small part of me wants to get a Mazda 121 or as we called them in Australia "bubble cars" and turbo it or something do people do that with these cars? when I was a kid I always wanted one.
>>24003581What has Mazda wrought...
>>24002665>almost too old to daily>almost too young to be a considered classicneo-classic middle chads rise up
>bought 1 owner, 10k original mile 93 Miata in 2013 at age 21>proceeded to not take care of it at all and ruin it with sick mods over the next 8 yearsI should've just locked it away in my shed and left it bone stock like everyone told me to.
Just mirin' the view, don't mind me
>>24003686It's not your fault, you were young and dumb. Now, you can show the new young ones that gay shit is, in fact, gay
>>24003686>tfw raped my mazdaspeed3 to death through neglected maintenance because i was a poor college fuck
>>24002665>100% appreciation in half a decade>didn't realise till someone mentioned what these are worth now>mfw
>>24003649this is pretty much where we are at. poised to take the podium.
>>24004769Hopefully you didn't zoom-zoom boom it by going WOT below 3k.I miss my old Mazdaspeed 3, was a good car until a female decided brakes were optional for slowing down.
>>24003581The 1600 twin cam from the Mx-5 is an easy swap. Start with a 1.5 121 as the have a stronger gearbox and driveshafts. Pic is one I had.
>>24002665is this based?
>>24007633I'd really like a Protege5 with MSP powertrain...
>>24007654They only made 2000 MSPs so that dream is fading fast anon. The world has gone crazy and now the MSP and MP3 are collector cars
>>24002665Deep in our hearts we all knew the 80’s was destined to make a come back
I kind of wish I'd been born ten years earlier because we've already pretty much missed out on most 80s cars, but objectively I'm quite happy to still be able to have my pick of 90s/00s shitboxes (which are better rustproofed and easier to live with) for almost nothing.I suspect 2010s cars will be harder to run on when they get 20+ years old because muh electronics, but then people were saying that about fuel injection when it went mainstream back in the 80s/90s.
>>24007705the 80s never ended, anon ... we are in ronald reagan's 11th term
Wat do /o/1. drive around in car with shitty surface rust spots and patch repair paintovers2. get cheap dirty blowover to make it look better for next 3-5 years3. spend x4 value of car getting proper mini-restoration and respray4. Stop being a cuck, invest in gear and learn to do a full restoration job myselfLet's be honest I'm ruling out options 3 and 4, more money/effort than it's worth. Any other ideas to make old shitbox look less shit?>pic semi related not that bad but it's going that way
>>24008562Do nothing and buy something better when you can
>>24004769>college>with a car you probably didn't need>poorlol i hated you middle class candyasses so much in college
>>24010294>I was poor then and I'm a faggot now
Pic of my S13 circa 2007. The more things change, the more they stay the same...
I imagine if I sit on this for a while and keep it nice it'll be worth a lot more in the coming years
Might do an ls4, 4t80e swap into one of these
How long until LS400's become as expensive as other rarer 90s jap cars?
>>24010692They are already appreciating
>>24010692as soon as you decide to shop for one
>>24010722I already own one lol, paid 5k AUD for a mint condition one four years ago, and noticed they're around 10k now but still not that expensive compared to sportier jap cars
>>24010770It's interesting how nobody ever mentions mileage, like that isn't the key determining factor in a used car price. You can buy an ls400 for $1500 or $15000.
>>24007633Nice. Winning Blue was the brochure colour on the MS Familia's.
>>24002712You just let the Jew win. Congrats.
>>24010845Clean ones are definitely getting harder and harder to find. All I see locally are ragged out VIP project failures.
>>24011952Wake up man, you are the jew!
>>24010609Finding parts for that has to be a pain. Probably easier to buy a parts car I bet.
>>24013450Specific parts like interior and exterior, sureThe engine is just a lima like in a ranger so you can get generic parts like gaskets pretty easily.
>>24002665>jdm auction site>I have 2500 dollars
I'm never getting a New Edge GT now...
>>24014400Not from a dealer. But that should be your philosophy anyway
>>24014400I would say now is prime time for a new edge. Like other anon said, just dont look for one at the dealer. Check out collectorcarfeed.com.
What about these?
>>24014819>80s/90s/00s carsWhy wouldn't it qualify?
>>24014819Too bad nobody here has one.
>>24014959Someone here must.
>>24010609i dont know man it seems like the cars that are going up in value are late 90s and up. The 80s thing might be dead
All these auction sites have one agenda - make it so only upper middle class white people can partake in the car hobby
>>2401568280s cars are, well, 80s. The styling wasnt there, and the technology was unreliable. By the 90s, Japan had perfected the reliability of electronics in cars.
>>24015869Pretty based desu
>>24016521t. silver spoon yuppie faggot who was born into wealth/got wealthy through money laundering or some other form of white collar crime
>>24016701Go join the military faggot
>>24016738ah yes, go die for israel
>>24016701I used to be angry that I couldnt buy a muscle car. Now I'm on the other side of the fence.
These just keep climbing in value, especially the coupe
>>24018830I'd really like a clean camry coupe. Very cool daily
>>24016884and how did you get there
>>24015304There's a guy in /ccg/ who's had 8 of them.
Neoclassic is sufferingToo old to still be able to buy parts from the manufacturerToo new for people to have started reproductions
>>24019015Experience and expanding disposable income. Knowing what is desirable and what isnt, knowing what I can fix and what I cant. The feelings that boomers had for muscle cars in the 90s has now been transferred to the younger generation for 90s cars, and we are on the cusp of the market skyrocketing.
>>24002783https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/oakville/cars-vans-utes/s13-silvia-for-sale-or-swap-clean-car/1272675118A rolling shell will set you back 10 grand, and anything you do find, you can guarantee its either automatic, or been riced to the point its everything but a silvia.
>>24008316>Electronics being the problem Close but not quite. Plastics is the big problem. Cooling systems since 2000 are just full of them and they don't age well. So far aftermarket replacements have proven to be almost worthless junk that won't last 6 months and I don't see this changing.
>>24003581Is that basically an aussie saturn? Are those driven by bogans vagabonds and highschoolers?That said, I like, very cute
>>24008562Buy a saturn, they're plastic, only the unibody rots away before you can keep up.
>not having a neo-classicLMAO
>>24021441>be average joe>buy car>car DECREASES in value lmfaodo they REALLY...?
>>24021621Only if you have shit taste
>>24002665I have a 1989 Camry 5 speed and a 1991 MR2 turbo for sale
>>24002665Which generation of Prelude is best generation of Prelude? Talking the normal ones, 3rd-5th.
>>24018830lmao get a grip
>>240217332nd and 5th
>>24021733Fifth and please stop talking like a bird
Is this a neo classic?
>>24002665OP's pic minus cigarette, plus sleeveless t-shirt was me this morning eyeballing my freshly washed C5 Z06. Zero fucks given. feels goodman.
>>24024161thats nice anon>>24023952lol
>>24023952Yes. Only if it’s manual and 4x4 though.
>>24003518Looks damn clean
