Don't go into the light, you will be missed
Ron, you can wax nostalgic if you want to, but I took a pass on that years ago.As I read this Kaylan- Today and thinking of selling mine (totally OE). I know I sure would miss it, but I wish for something older to be more nostalgic (Older) at my age. I may be sorry, but I think I may move on or not????????????????? Help!:indiffer:

Heck, I am no different than (most) anyone, and like some of the things (cars included) from my past to occupy the driveway. But when I am honest with myself, I wouldn't be very happy with another 62 Fairlane, or maybe even one of the first Mustangs. Let alone one of my teenage years, "dream cars". Too much upkeep involved. I don't want to deal with mechanical issues, and obsolete parts. There is no fun in that! No sir! I want to drive the thing! When I drive it, I want it to move smartly, stop efficiently and keep me happily moving down the road at a reasonable pace. That's what it's all about.
Of course if you like to fiddle with things mechanical, and put aside reliability, driveability, and safety....well enjoy.:wink:
If you look anecdotally at various sales on auction sites, some 2001 models have had sold higher than before calendar year 2018. The 50th anniversary, along with the new '19, brought a lot of attention to the previous versions. Those higher sales, however, were for very clean stock units with low miles. The higher mileage examples still go for values which have held steady for a number of years. The more modified, the harder it becomes to place a comparable amount. So, in short, the 50th anniversary, in my opinion, did more for 2001 values than being 20 years old in 2021. Being 20 years old is something to celebrate, of course!Does anyone think our 2001 Bullitts will go up in value because they will be 20 years old on 2021?
