Unless your prepared to throw big money at a daily then i don't think you would ever make mega money on one and byu the time its worth anything it will have starship miles on it unless you only do 2k a year,

Maybe a weekend toy might be a better sort of idea, something that you can enjoy when weather nice,

Alot of stuff that was common as muck even 10 years ago is starting to get rare, remember a friend had a mk6 escort Rs2000 and although am not a ford fan i always quiet liked that shape, find a nice one today that isn't stupid money,

I bought a peugeot 309gti must be knocking up 10 years ago for 360quid and ripped it to bits to use as a track toy, really beginning to wih i had just fixed it up and left it standard now as it would be worth 4x times what I paid for it now and they slowly seem to be following there 205gti sisters and starting to rise in value,

I suppose time scale and the value of money itself would also have an effect,for instance:My first car was a '59 Ford Consul bought for 38 and they're now pretty reasonable money now,so technically if I still had it I'd make money selling it,however how much would I have needed to spend on it in the last 50yrs or so to have kept it in a condition to make such money as they now do and now 50 or so years later what is the original 38 purchase price taking into account inflation etc.worth? So would I have actually made any money on it?

My 940 is worth more than I paid for it 2 years ago, the prices are slowly rising now.

38.00 50 years ago is 604.79 today (Bank of England Inflation Calculator). Not really the point of the thread though.
