What's next?

Hi All -

I am selling my '67 Alfa Spider at Gooding's auction in Pebble Beach.

1967 Alfa Romeo 1600 Duetto Spider | Gooding & Company

Soon to be flush with cash (I hope) - I have started pondering what to buy to replace her in the garage. My budget is about $20-50k and I'm looking for something that will hold it's value or increase over time. So far, the two I can't get out of my head are:

e30 M3

993 911 Cabriolet

Are there others I should have on my shopping list?

Rick- The upper end of that scale will get you a C6 Z06 with 505 hp. The lower end a C5 Z06 with 405 hp. 987 Boxsters and Caymans also fit.

E type

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Thanks for the suggestions - hadn't really considered any of them yet. Will do some browsing tonight!

To clarify though, I am looking for something primarily from the 80s or 90s...fully depreciated and perhaps on the way back up (eventually).

There was an interesting article posted earlier this year (I be darned if I can't find the link right now) which listed 10 interesting suggestions for cars around your price range that might be good investment values right now. Maybe you'll have better luck than me finding it. I DO remember that the Ferrari 308 was on the list as was the Aston Martin DB7; all the rest are a blur.

I too thought long and hard about buying an E30 M3. They are awesome, incredibly involving cars with lots of parts availability and a big support group. If you've not owned an E30, you owe yourself a try. (As for me, I already own two E30s - an 87 325i convertible and a 318i (the one with the Z3 engine). For me, the M3 was too small a step from what I already have. When I looked away from M3s, the Ferrari 308 was a force I couldn't resist.)
