For the majority of classic cars I'd be surprised if, once you factored in all costs (maintenance, insurance etc.), the IRR over the past five years was more than 10%.

Am I the only to be a little sad that 'investors' are continuing to take such an interest in classic cars? I know it has always gone on to some degree but it seems like the chance for someone to own a classic car for the love of it are diminishing unless you have plenty of money to either buy or restore. Even erstwhile mass market cars seem to be fetching 'classic money' these days.
