Thanks, the one I have my eye on is not 100% original anymore. It was modified to make it more usable as a everyday ride. To start with it has a Datsun A12 motor and gearbox, newer rear diff and rear shocks, bigger rear brakes and wider tyres. I have just seen photos and still have to go and look at the actual car.

After almost a year of watching the net for mini's, I still haven't seen any worthwhile examples for sale. There also seems to be little nuances in model differences which affect the price which I know nothing about so it's real easy for someone to sell a 40k mini for 75k to someone like me. I've now sold my SUV and will be looking at something that I can use once or twice a week plus hopefully carry value reasonably well. Currently looking at the ultimate hairdressers car, the SLK but I change my mind almost as often as my brother changes bikes. It's interesting that a good example of the first shape sells for close to the same price of the of the updated shape.

I would think the firts Audi TT would also hold on to some value now. They where definitely a break in Audi tradition and what was considered traditional roadster design - was a revolution. I love them!

I agree and I like them too. I've kept an eye on the TTs for a while after a co-worker had one. They've kept more or less steady value over the last 5-6 years. Pretty much on par with the SLK. I suspect however that the maintenance will be a little cheaper on the Merc

My brother likes his classic cars too - he drives around in some kind of Ford - he buys and sells American classics and is quite involved in the car road shows they have around the country .

I have been lusting after Corvettes most of my life, not that particular shape though. This one looks in VERY good condition for its age. Good luck

Not sure if it has been mentioned here but I think the first BMW Z3 models will become quite popular as well. Can still get one for sub 100k
