Daryl Alison Comments on the "Classic Cars" of Tomorrow
While Some Hobbyists Focus on Existing Classic Car Models, Many Have
Begun Looking Towards the Future to Determine Which Models Will Be
the Classic Cars of Tomorrow; Daryl Alison, Industry Professional,
Comments on Some of These Choice Models
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 -- As a restoration
artist who refines and perfects classic cars and recreational
vehicles, Daryl Alison understands how valuable certain automobile
models can be in today's market. He notes that the rarer the model
and the better condition it is in, the more valuable a classic car is
to collectors and investors looking to make a profit. While Alison
remains focused on classic cars to accrue contributions for
nonprofits and to rent vehicles out to film and television studios,
he believes that this is a niche industry that can prove very
lucrative to dedicated individuals.
Many hobbyists remain focused on today's classic cars, but a recent
article from The Houston Chronicle suggests which models may become
valuable assets to collectors and restorative artists in the near
future. The list was developed by Hagerty Insurance who revealed 10
cars that "they believe could grow in value over time." In addition,
the article states, "The company, which insures high-dollar classic
cars, looked for timeless features when picking future classic cars.
This list has won the attention of Daryl Alison, who weighs in on
some of the models that have gained recognition from Hagerty
While Daryl Alison notes that he agrees with some models that made
the Hagerty List, he expresses doubts on a few, as there are just too
many factors to consider when estimating the future value of a car --
some of which he notes were overlooked when the list was developed.
For instance, Alison states, "The Audi RS5 is a beautiful car with
great road manners, but I can't see it being all that unique to
qualify. Meanwhile, the Ford Focus ST carries a 'been there, done
that' quality -- looking back at the early SVO Mustang and SHO
Taurus, they still haven't fared all that well, so I wouldn't put too
much faith in it becoming a classic either."
According to Alison, some may prove classic in terms of historical
value, specifically the Tesla Model S; however, he notes that these
types of vehicles will only continue to improve with modifications
that will not make them all that valuable in terms of becoming a
"classic." However, there were a few that did impress Daryl Alison,
as he believes they satisfy all criteria of production numbers,
performance and style that determine what defines a classic car. "The
Viper, Corvette, Camaro, Cayman S and Mini JC Works GP will for sure
prove contenders as 'classic,' mostly due in part to their limited
production numbers, heritage and power to weight ratio. Not to
mention, they look fantastic!" Daryl Alison concludes.
