    Obviously with SOR cars we give a professional input on pricing but we leave the final decision with the owner.

    As has already been said, its worth what someone is willing to pay. We just brokered a 7000 mile 996 GT3RS for a client that went for well over other cars on PH but it was the right car for that buyer.

    Keep the feedback coming though... good or bad!

    And 'a couple of people' isn't really indicative of the market.

    I work in it and have done for 20years now, and since a client turned down a F40 I had for £120k as "it will drop in price" and the McLaren F1 buyer at £850k who also turned it down because "they were only £650k a few months ago" I Have grown weary of of the armchair experts trying to tell everyone what will happen. Markets move and they move down. Fact of life, it's just the percentage of what those are deems bull or bear.
    Leverage is not that bad per se... In fact credit makes home ownership possible.... Tell me you didn't save until you could afford to buy your home for cash....

    The rest I agree with you... I could never consider cars an investment. But for people that did, clearly the last decade has been fantastic.

    At that concours in the city last Friday and looking around the southerbys stand and in rolls this fund manager saying he's putting together a fund for some cars and needs to chat to someone... can see he's in front of the curve. I almost choked. Should have got his card I could have sold him a cortina with one green door as a special

    I have yet to see or meet a fund manager who has the slightest idea of how it all works. This guy talking to Sothebys is like a chef walking into a fast food convention announcing "I want to talk to someone about opening the best steak restaurant in the world"
