Found some very interesting valuations on some rather expensive motor cars from the auction sheets in the USA. The cheapest was a 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra which went under the hammer for, $1,155,000. Yes, one point one five five million dollars. Not baht. Now I have driven a 289 Cobra, and it was a wonderful experience, but worth 1.1 mill? No way. Anyway, I’d want a 250 LM.

You can see that if you are looking at your vehicle as an investment, better get a Ferrari. I’m sorry but an Isuzu just doesn’t cut it.
