Archie and Pete are not wrong... I just think more emotionally, a pure fiscal perspective is not something I'm good at. I believe the Aston's are presently popular. Blame it on James Bond or what ever you like. I do know theres no such thing as a new england region Aston Meet. Most any Ferrari will get you an OOOOh Ahhhh from the most casual observer. Aston's are less recognized or identified by the general public. Does that make them more or less valuable?
You've got to make your own decision here weighing your fiscal and emotional options to decide what you want. Is it an Investment or a calling? I personally want to call my Ferrari an investment. Thats how I sold the wife on the idea. But when you really get down to it, lets be serious, Theres no way way I gonna make money on this thing based on maintenance cost's alone.
If your definition of an investment is which car you'll lose less on then don't be silly. you can't swap one car for another through any dealer on the planet without that dealer thinking he's gonna get something out of it. They are in business to make money, and its always at your expense. Now if you can find a Ferrari owner that wants an Aston, maybe you'll have something. I got to figure that gonna be tough. Especially in this forum.
More importantly...If any of us thought fiscally...no one would own any exotic car
