    Storing cars in warehouses is a travesty. They should be driven, most of them anyway. I do see the value in keeping some around for historical purposes, but what good is a car that you dont drive?

    A 2019 Ford GT is simply a better looking/performing version of that car, but i do love GT40s.

    Art and cars arent the same thing. This thread is about my thoughts on cars.

    You make a valid point, however, i think that when it comes to cars, the importance of their drivability and looks outweighs the importance of nostalgia.

    I know a professional restorer who has a four story warehouse near Reno, Nv. full of antique and restored vintage cars and cycles that makes a very good living renting them out to movie companies. He more than breaks even on his collection.
