                                                        This could be a great year to buy a not-quite-perfect, under-$50,000 collector car.
                                                     Prices for cars restored to perfection and beyond continue to soar, as wealthy col-
                                                     lectors understand that a top-flight restoration costs tens of thousands of dollars and
                                                     takes months. Buying a properly done car, even at a retail-plus price, is often still a
                                                     good deal.
                                                        But in this challenging economy, a large number of “driver-quality” cars are com-

                                                     driven enough to lose their show-quality edge. The sellers of these cars are often very
                                                     motivated to turn their cars into money, so you’ll see a high number of them offered
                                                     at No Reserve.
                                                        Let’s face it—if you drive a perfect car, it will become an imperfect one soon
                                                     enough, accumulating evidence of its use through rock chips, creased upholstery
                                                     and general wear. Why not save some money, pay a mid-market price for a mid-
                                                     market car, and get something you can drive every day without fear of every road
                                                     hazard costing you a concours point? If you intend to drive your car, buying a nicely-
                                                     aged collector car, at a middle-of-the-pack price, is the way to go.
