Older cars that are collectable now are made of steel on the outside. Too much cheap plastic on cars now to be a good collectable. Jmo

Eventually. After enough wrecks (not wishing any bad luck on anyone) and age, etc. it will start to become harder to find. There will still be many but not in collectable condition. How many people are buying and parking...not many. Or how many are getting the custom treatment from the high end mod shops - i.e. Yenko from the past?

In 30 years, I doubt you will get more than sticker price. Maybe 50 years.

Anything will be worth something if you wait long enough, but that's not why you buy a car. As soon as you take possession of it, treat it like it was meant to be treated: drive the hell out of it and enjoy it as much as you can while staying out of jail!

It might be sooner than 30 years... I would say in 10 years time these first production runs with the special insert in the vin numbers will be considered collectibles with the L99 and LS3. The reasoning for it is how quickly I think GM is going to move away from this type of engine. I wouldn't be surprised if in two years, the V8 gets the new Direct Injection V8 that has 450 HP..etc..that runs on ethanol as well as gas. In ten years, the Camaro may have a hybrid V8 option with one of those 450HP engines.. I wouldn't be complaining about that if it got 50mpg and had more power than todays LS3. However in the collectible sense, being the the last of an all naturally aspirated V8 as the LS3 probably will be will make that engine at the least a collectible in the eyes of many and if the Camaro is kept pristine, it should still turn as much heads as the all steel Mustangs, Camaro's, Pontiacs and Dodge's of years past..

I do believe there is a good chance the "Pre Order" cars very well may become a collectible.

If this is the case, there is something I'm wondering about that some of our more experienced Camaro 5 members who actually do collect cars for real, might be able to answer.

According to the link that shows all the VIN #'s / descriptions etc., the overwhelming number of "Pre Orders" are either 2SS, or 2SS/RS's. What are the chances that the much, much lower produced "Pre Ordered" 1SS/RS Camaro's could be worth alot more in the long run? Especially if the car was painted in one of the colors that they just didn't make very many of?

Zero difference.
It's one thing if GM would have numbered them, but going off of VIN... nope.

Depends on how you look at it.

I don't see the Goverment allowing a 426 HP SS Camaro to be produced for long. Their interest is in green and fuel saver cars. Yes these SS's will be collectors car. Collect all things that are 2010 Camaro oriented too.

The govt might not allow black cars in the future I got that base covered too with my 2SS/RS with the 6 speed manuel transmission Black/Black. I have been wrong before but I got on order a modern muscle car that is taking Detroit writers by storm as well as all of us on the Camaro5 Forum!!

For me this 2010 SS was the better idea than a older classic Camaro Hot Rod. I am able to travel across the Nation and not worry about break downs, it is more comfortable to drive and was less money than the classic Camaro.

Nice, clean lower mileage or restored Z-28, SS cars will always be in demand. Look what has happened to 69 Z-28 cars.

Someone posted earlier that 3 rd Gen are not going up - not so - third gen Z-28s have doubled in value in the last 5 years. Still not worth a ton of money, but they are getting more popular.

The original muscle cars of the late 60s (the rare combinations) will always be the main collectables and bring the high dollars.

The average 2010 Camaro SS/RS (that 99% of us will own) will not be worth all that much in 20- 30 years.

So I say drive your car and enjoy it. Otherwise its going to just sit in the garage losing value.

I would say the members who preordered their cars will be the future survivor cars 30 years from now...those first cars will proabably be the most sought after because of vin documentation etc....

It will certainly be a collectible, but don't think of it as an investment.

I don't think at all these cars will be worth anything. Maybe the first few maybe worth something, A limited run car is worth something. Ie. 2008 Challenger, Iroc-Z, F-1. All these were limited runs and could see them being worth something in 20 years
