Bubble burst

I’m seeing a lot of Evos struggling to sell at the moment. And being summer you’d expect them to be shifting. So.. are they over priced for their condition? Or has the bubble burst ? Or does anyone know different? Are they selling?

You can get a lot more descent powered modern cars now as compared to years ago. I think more younger people would rather have an Audi or a BMW?

Yes I think the Evo appeals to an older crowd from that era personally. But the huge hike we had 12 months ago has definitely dipped.

I have 2 points to make on this.

1 I've been looking for a nice ruri blue 9 for a year now and can't find a good one. So most of them are probably rubbish that's why there not shifting.

2 the only reason these modern classics go up is because people who wanted one years ago and couldn't afford one now can so buy one. Most young people would rather have a golf r or a audi.
So once all us oldies have gone and bought one then the market will slow up. And in the end they will be worthless again when we have all died out.
Anyone that thinks these cars or any "modern classic" will hold its value forever is kidding them self.
When I was a kid I wanted scoobys and evo's as they were current at the time and i was 10 yrs old so that's what I have now. What I didn't dream of was 20 yr old cars that looked dated and down on power compared to the latest evos.
So in another 20 yrs or maybe longer the market for these will be very small as we will have died out and the only people who will want them will be people who remember there dad or grandad having one.

Well I can say iv spoke to couple of young drivers even a family member who is a 22 year old mechanic and there faces light up when they see the evo and when I'm about you hear them saying wow would love one they are still regarded as a somthing special and price wise poeple are asking to much for them that is why they are not selling. the one at a right price will sell all day long .

I think these cars will always be special. Regarding the history of evos.
They don't make mental cars like evos anymore.
They are pretty wild, probably too wild.
The point of young people not wanting one is ridiculous.
Many a time young lads 20 year old say to me , now that's a proper car.

my dad had a 1966 mk1 lotus cortina ,the evo of its day ,its SSSOOOO freaking cool its untrue ,it turns head as much as any evo thats for sure .

we chopped up and threw away so many mk1 cortinas back in the day ,just like we do now with evos of all kinds ,

but just like the evo theres good and bad ones and prices reflect that ,the evo market will soon catch on im sure

What was so special about it? Must have been a limited edition one that was nearly new or something?
