Collectable motor is the limited run ZL1 427, but they're all sold now I believe...See what I mean?

I understand what you're saying, but that's not entirely true. Anything is collectable, but few things are more valuable with time. Some things are a given, like the above mentioned 427, but the LS9, well, time will tell. A good example is the only GM built 3rd gen Camaro LT5 car in existence, and it sold for what...50 g's? That's insanely cheap! If I would have known that would happen, I would have been on the phone bidding. I would bet you that car is going to be 10x that in 20 years.
