If your smart you buy it baby it and drive it like the collectors car its headed to be! this is a fine car! power, handling etc. they don't offer this car model anymore and it will be a collectors some day. yes insurance will be tough especially at 17 but mark my words don't rack up miles, don't abuse it and you may someday double your investment. Nissan made a roadster while still Datsun the original name called the 2000 roadster. an MG looking roadster and today they are rare and valuable to collectors!
1966 ford t bird?
1964-1966 Tbirds (also known as Flairbirds in the hobby) are an upcoming segment of collector cars. The Tbirds were designed and built as personal luxury cars and as such are very heavy and comfortable. They garner attention from a small segment of the hobby due to the fact that they are not particularly fast and do not have much potential for speed due to their excess weight (they weigh half again as much as a Mustang!). People who own these cars, like myself, usually have them because they are very comfortable and attractive. The Flairbirds usually sell in the $10,000 dollar range for a nice clean car and rarely top $15,000 for a closed car. Convertibles are obviously more valuable. Price guides for these cars are very deceptive and give people a rosy view of the market which is unfortunately not as strong as it is for more popular cars. A quick look at auction site results will show that very often these cars are no sales with reserves not met because the owner felt it was worth more than the market was willing to spend. Restoring these cars is actually quite do-able as most parts are available but cost is shocking sometimes and the cost of restoring a car will well exceed its finished value. You restore a Tbird because you like them, not to get rich. Just to give you an idea of the market, on eBay in the last 30 days there have been 50 64-66 Tbirds offered. 16 have sold. Of those only 7 sold for $3000 dollars or more. Only two closed cars sold for more than $4000 dollars and the top cars were all very nice convertibles and the most expensive brought $21,000 dollars. They are fantastic cars to own but if you don't love the car it is not a good investment (which is often true of any car). These cars will continue to appreciate in value but it could be some time before the appreciation brings the value up to the cost of building one. Hawkrod
What is your motivation for illegally downloading a movie online?
...being the passionate movie lover that I am, the only true place to see films, is on the motion picture screen...bigger than life; in that cathedral, the film being featured has my complete 100% attention, and most worth of my time, attention and investment.
I DO watch film on video at home, of course, having an estimated film collection of something in the arena of 13,000 titles...70 to 75 percent of which are original, personally purchased treasures; to me, collecting films is not unlike collecting art.....it's just worth more to me, at least personally; in this way, I have further invested myself into the film, and afforded any respect and appreciation deserved of the film.
Candidly, I HAVE 'duped' or acquired copies of a great number of films in my collection, but this is specifically because they have long not been officially released, and yet have still been made available through various covert venues. If I was savvy to the concept of downloading films, it would be for that very reason, and that very reason alone why I would do it.....that someone online has the film I would be looking for, which hasn't been officially or legally released. Bear in mind, I'm talking about rarities and classics, which might be on just about every interested film collector's want list, and have been long sought after.....not just so I can have a scot-free copy of "Spider-Man 3", months before it's official video release.
...again, it stems right back to the attention, respect and appreciation deserved of the film.
Point in case, one of the films, which has been on my want list for years, is the sci-fi chiller from 1974, "Chosen Survivors"; I remember seeing the film at the drive-in theatre, a long way back, and when video became a collectable venue, I knew that one day, I would have to have the film in my collection. About three years ago, I happened upon a collector connection in Europe, who had the film dubbed in Swedish, but had English subtitles; it was a third or fourth generation copy, and barely watchable, but damned if I didn't have the film in my collection, finally....a sense of personal accomplishment. The good thing about this particular film, as with just about every film eventually, is that in October, Fox Video is finally releasing the film commercially. Like a collector of fine art, devotedly seeking out a true blue collectable, and temporarily settling for an acceptable substitute, we're talking satisfaction finally sated...barring more than a little patience.
It's also a matter of respect and appreciation for the film maker, the film making process, and the hundreds and hundreds of people responsible for putting out the product, irregardless of how good or bad the film is; knowing the overall process of producing a film, and the hard work expounded, as a result of the production of that film, I would be most hard-pressed in finding satisfaction in downloading or copying a film, which is know to be, or is readily anticipated to be available.
