Yeah....and soon there’ll be a thread on rfd, ‘how can I widen my driveway to fit in more cars.’

Big banks had a June return date but it's been pushed back, and that's only still tentatively. Many others as well. There's 200K plus in the financial district, most WFH. Then Yonge n Bloor area has a lot (Rogers, Manulife, big CIBC building and BMO one). Then add in all the Government offices still WFH, and it's much longer or more adopted. Then tech companies everywhere WFH even longer to permanent, which is one of Ontario's largest employers.ES_Revenge wrote: ↑ What do you mean "WFH for the forseeable future"?

Anyway I bought my summer car last fall (thread on it here) and glad I did it when I did because I got it for cheap ...And have you seen used car values recently? I could sell the same car back now for more money. Crazy.

Alot of folks prob got loaded off crypto so having some fun with it. I'm up (not huge or anything) so that's factoring in. Why chase all this moolah. My properties are doing well but still find it hard to 'reward' myself (immigrant mentality who's still influenced by parents that still think a bomb is around the corner).ncnmra wrote: ↑ Prices for everything are going through the roof (despite the gov't insisting that there is no inflation -- topic for another thread). "Fun" vehicles including RVs, boats and cars are skyrocketing in price. I picked up a C6 Corvette last spring (I was on the hunt for a few years), and I'm glad I did. Prices have increased 30-40%.
A buddy picked up a 911 for $14k, sold it yesterday for $34k.
I have zero idea where everything is going at this point, but I feel like we are seeing highs right now. Not saying "don't go for it", since YOLO is real, but at the same time, if you think you'll be getting a bargain because nobody is driving, you would be incorrect. I do a lot of car window shopping, and the price increases are staggering for anything that isn't a run of the mill car.

Huge plus for ready to roll and enjoy rides. Season is still way too short. Nobody wants to be fixing, chasing down parts.Gibsons wrote: ↑ This is true, especially for Classics and Collector cars. The market has gone nuts. If you have something somewhat collectable, you could make thousands on it just by flipping it from last year. Of course, it has to be mint condition, not a 76' Impala with a rusted out frame - that's still junk.
Many ppl having trouble finding places to park their RVs or trailers to enjoy. Everything is booked.

That's actually inflation at play. Ppl are moving disposable cash into tangible and intangible assets due to fear of inflation. Investments and collectibles are hedges against inflation. Buy a car now worth $50k. Hyper inflation sets in and your car is worth $400k. But if you sit on cash, your $50k is still 50k. Plus, you can sell your car to other countries and get their currency. Same goes for crypto, stock market and the housing market.

Sounds... unlikely. Even a miled out 996 with no IMS update would go for more than that now. I think even a few years ago they were in the low 20s. Probably back into the 30s now. I've noticed a lot of PCA folks have picked one up lately as a beater sports car.

Yup would have to be clapped out 996 and even then under $20k is highly unlikely. 996 have gone up a lot in the past year.

I have a feeling going forward if a company won't offer WFH option for desk jockeys, it will not get any talents working for them. It's gonna suck for commercial property owners.ES_Revenge wrote: ↑ What do you mean "WFH for the forseeable future"?

Tell her YOLO! I'm thinking of shipping a car over. Older American though (80s so not collectible) so cheap, but definitely more then it was 10-15 years ago let's say. I thought the prices of these would stay low but has gone up actually since it's more scarce now vs being junked

You may have some competition, my buddy is looking at the same . He’s been searching for a lotus for the last 3 yrs (on and off)
