10 classics to buy for 2022, according to Hagerty

Should the potential value of a classic be the driving force behind buying one? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a car that’s fun to drive and likely to make you some money a few years down the road.

But now comes the tricky part: finding out which old-school rides are expected to increase in value.

Lucky for you, Hagerty just released its annual Bull Market List, a roundup of 10 classics it predicts will increase in value going into the new year:

  • 1969–1974 Ferrari 246 Dino
  • 1966–1967 Pontiac GTO
  • 1992–1995 Porsche 968
  • 1983–1997 Land Rover Defender
  • 1979–1985 Mazda RX-7
  • 1963–1967 Mercedes-Benz 230SL
  • 1975–1993 Volvo 245
  • 1965–1970 Cadillac DeVille
  • 1985–1995 Suzuki Samurai
  • 2008–2012 Tesla Roadster Sport

You can read more about how Hagerty compiled its list on its website, but here are two key takeaways from its research: More than ever, Gen Xers and millennials are the ones steering trends in the marketplace, and European collectors are showing an increased interest in European classics, causing a rise in overseas exports.

I'm old enough to remember when people would argue that a Dino and where shocked when one broke 100k. I suppose that makes me old and them fools. 

968 porsche is interesting. Is it just a 944 with different lights or something more?

I hate seeing this sort of thread. I had a client offer me his Dino Spider once for $50K (I won't tell you what they sell for today).

And I also turned down a Fiat Dino coupe for $10K.......

I remember seeing a Dino Coupe for around 10K at Import Carlisle. I also could have bought a decent Alfa Montreal for 15K one year there. I had the money but did not buy it, have regretted that decision for years......

My daily driver is on this list. It is also the newest model year car I have ever owned....

And then there was the Maserati Ghibli SS I delayed on because I wanted to be fiscally responsible and sell a car I had first.  Of course it went south for less than $20K.......

(Stumbling on a Lamborghini Islero S shortly after restored my belief in the automotive Gods).
