I have been a collector for 35 years. Here is one of my personal collector cars for your consideration. If you are in the market for an Austin Healey, this is your opportunity to acquire a fine example of the best year and model ever made! The Austin-Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967, and is the best known of the "big" Healey models. So the 1967 Austin Healey BJ-8 3000 Mk III was the grand finale and subsequently the most desirable year and model they produced. This particular car had a 3-year body off $52,000 restoration and looks like it just came out of the factory. The car starts right up and runs great. This is a small body car that delivers a lot of power with its straight 6 cylinder motor. That's right, a 6 cylinder engine with a 4-speed smooth shifting standard transmission! So whether you just drive in town or on the highway, this car can easily do both. It has wire wheels, an adjustable steering column, Laminated windscreen, two fender mount mirors luggage rack and tonneau cover and it even has a rear seat so you can seat four! As you can tell by the pictures, this is a wonderful looking car, but it runs even better than it looks. So whether you want to purchase a nice dependable classic to drive around or your preference is to buy a strong investment that continues to appreciate, you can't go wrong with this fine automobile.

With mixed feelings, I noted the Hagerty report this week about the relative values of specific collector cars in relation with value trends in the market as a whole.
