If you guys are truly wondering whether these cars will ever reach
"collector" status, make some phone calls. There are a number of
experts in the country who deal in and with true collector cars. Ask
them. My bet is they will say "what car?" when asked about the Ur-Q.
To me, this talk is much like the debate about whether works of art
[ie., Remington pieces] should be owned privately or held by museums
for the enjoyment of all. I think material items fall in several
categories: Tools and enjoyment pieces are the two main categories.
If you want a stock Ur-Q, GREAT! If you don't, you owe nothing to
anyone but yourself--since you paid for it. Modify until your heart
is content. To talk about slow, detuned, smog-certified cars with a
hushed tone simply ain't for me.
Btw, you that own an '85 Ur-Q---what is the market for the car right
now? By this, I mean, what did you pay, not what would you take? My
guess is 6-10k?
