When we published Hagerty Insurance Co.s list of future collectible cars, one that brought that a lot of reader wrath was the Buick Regal GS, a new high-performance version of the mid-sized Regal.
"The Buick Regal - Ha!!!!! Not in this century," one reader commented.
In fact, the very idea of a collectible Buick seemed laughable to some readers.
Well, it's certainly not like it's never happened. While this Skylark was a fairly pricey car in its day -- over $40,000 in today's money -- it's really valuable today. This was a special edition created to celebrate the Buick brand's 50th birthday.
Hagerty Insurance says these 10 relatively affordable cars will likely become collectibles and will sell for big bucks at car auctions decades from now.
