This is from Just Cars Magazine I hope it turn out because I'm outraged.
Check out the alleged value of the mighty HQ Holden.
The attachment is the rating system they use.

Its an accurate analysis of inaccurate data. How many people do you know that write the actual amount paid on the rego papers? zero, because they don't wish to reamed by the rego authority for changing names on the rego papers. The rest of the data comes from trade in prices, and the prices quoted would be pretty close to what you will get offered if you trade in a HQ at most car yards. That data would be ageing too as its not as common these days but they were still traded commonly into the 90's.

I probably would, I know most of the mechanics around the area. Although the area is quite culturally diverse and Tony is a very common name, particularly with those from European heritage who usually pick a new name that's easier to pronounce.

Yeah guess you're right but he was an aussie bloke,more than likely his full name would be Anthony,short dark hair,not real tall,happy,smiley head.I'm going back about almost 20 years ago though.He came to my wedding down there at the time.I used to have a house in Bass Street Barrack Point,behind the caravan park!...

yeah,I know that,bumped into old neighbours up here at Port Macquarie a few years ago & they told me how much they're worth,but I went through a divorce settlement & it had to be sold at the time,that was 17 years ago.Does'nt really matter I have another one now,plus I always wanted to move up this way,I've been holidaying up this way since I was a kid!...

FJWB...if you truly believe that old Holden's are worth what you think that they're worth then invest your super funds into them.....old Holdens much like old Aussie fords are only worth that they're worth in the eyes of a beholder.....I'm just glad that I didn't buy a GTHO for 500k....because today I'd be very much out of pocket.....there are only so many 50 or 60 year olds with cash to splash......come another ten years and those HK Monaros won't be worth ziltch....I'll be damned if I'd want to spent 2 years of living upon something that I can't park at woollies....HK, HQ, XR, XW......the crowd that desire those types of vehicles are slowly falling by the way side....even the up and coming enthusiasts know that 4 wheels are not worth more than 500mts of dirt.....

10 years and HK's will be worth ziltch hey? Can I put my order in for as many HK GTS as I can, I am happy to wait. You also imply that those that desire these cars are dying off so soon no one is left wanting them, so why then do all those that desire 100 year old veteran cars selling in the millions rangem ( RR, Bugatti and the like) live so long?

What are you on about? I made no claims of value of cars, only an indication that they would (particularly the HQ in the discussion) would be worth more than the guide, not significantly more, just more. Try buying a complete HQ in the condition stipulated In column 1 for $3k and let me know how you got on. That guide is a bit of a dogs breakfast actually because most of the prices are either way too high or way too low, a few are close.
In regards to super investment only an idiot would invest in cars and a bigger idiot would do it at the top of the market.

I find that the best thing to do with Just Cars price guide is tear it out and hang it behind the door in your dunny, for when you run out of bog paper. Just dont use the cover, it's too shiny.
