Rarity affects value for collectible?

35

Asked by Apr 11, 2017 at 08:47 AM about the 1999 Buick Riviera Supercharged Coupe

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

Only 1,787 Rivieras were built for 1999 the last year.  Today less than 100
have been found.  In my past whenever a limited built car has been built their
value has gone up my belief is that the same will happen to this marvelous
supercharged coupe.

Don't want to rain on your parade- really I don't- anything after 1980 is not going to go up in value- with a few exceptions- people make this mistake often- they think their cars are made of gold- this is a mass-produced car that can not be rebuilt- really it can't- it is not cost effective to go through all the machinery and all the electronics- these modern cars are all, basically, disposable-

So few modern cars have what it takes to be true collectables. Jamn is on the right track, there is just a very limited number of late model cars that will be even worth what they cost new in maybe 30 years......so if you hang on long enough you might get back what you paid for it.

I agree with the posts above. Number produced means nothing if there is a not a demand for the vehicle. Present and future. Guides value the car at $4200 in excellent condition as your vehicle looks to be in.

I think all of the above comes from folks who have never driven this car and the rarity will be noticed in the near future this car is a sleeper. Today it would cost over $100,000 to match a full size coupe my 2 cents.
