The question in this book can be summarized in one sentence: In which cars have people been interested in the past and why?
Although the book was published a few years ago, the content has not lost any relevance. It is the only book ever published that focuses on and explains the demand for classic cars.
This book takes a unique and thus completely different perspective than other books on the price development of classic cars. It provides analyzes and explanations that determine the demand for (classic) cars. This book thus exceeds the level of all other publications that venture into the price development of cars. Because this book does not simply describe which cars according to an author can or will increase in value.
The price development of cars is influenced by many factors. This applies, for example, to the development of the economy, developments on the international stock markets, interest rates, etc. Apart from these developments, the interest of enthusiasts influences the demand for classic cars. Because regardless of whether the market prices go up or down, enthusiasts usually remain interested in the same cars.
For instance: In times when prices are rising, people are interested in sports cars from the 1980s, for example. When prices fall due to economic circumstances, enthusiasts remain interested in these cars. Due to a fall in prices due to economic conditions, interest does not shift from sports cars from the 1980s to saloons from the 1950s, for example. Prices can fluctuate over shorter periods, but the interest of enthusiasts for cars only changes over longer term. This book describes and explains the changes in the interest of car enthusiasts.
