To get started on the cheap, Hagerty Insurance, which specializes in covering collectible cars, recommends these ten models. The values given here are for cars in average condition.
One excellent cut-rate collectible is this older, V8-powered Ford Mustang. With demands for fuel economy rising, performance took a back seat in most late 1970s and early 80s cars. That made the 205 horsepower Mustang 5.0 HO a particularly desirable model for performance fans.
Starting next year, Ford is bringing out a new 5.0-liter displacement V8 for the Mustang, which will bring more attention to the original.
