5) 1997 Dodge Viper SRT

Being discontinued in 2017, the Dodge Viper holds an incredibly special place in our hearts here at Pipetale, however, it’s not just us who love this car. The National even went on to call it “The death of an era” of automotive history, as even their direct competitors, the Ford GT, and the Chevrolet Corvette have swapped to mid-engined supercar status vehicles. The 1997 Dodge Viper has one of the most recognizable, and iconic body styles ever to be produced, and we are already seeing prices skyrocket, and sales to back them. If they ever re-release, we can only expect a boom!

4) Foxbody Mustangs

Ah yes, bring on the hate and the crowd-hunter jokes. We’ll defend ourselves from the off-track, triple-reinforced barriers we set up at car shows when one shows up! These foxes have amassed an amazing cult following behind the 5.0L powered, incredibly heavy late 80’s sports car! I’ve personally owned one, and let me tell you, are they ever fun. As demand goes up though, so does price! I want to buy it back…

3) Lotus Esprit

Such an oddball car, in all honesty. Lotus’ are incredibly fickle vehicles, being put together by-hand. Technically speaking, no two Lotus’ are the same, as there are minor defects in each one. That’s what make these such a treat to own, though! These tiny cockpits, and sleek, definite 90’s body lines are just going up, up, and up in value the more time passes.

2) Pontiac Fiero GT

My god, the Fiero. My dad used to tell me about these back when I was first buying cars at 12-13. Deemed “The poor mans Ferrari”, Dad and I always looked into buying one and doing up a kit car for when I was in high school, just for fun. Now, I remember looking at Fiero’s for $1,000 all day long, and this was 6-8 years ago. Today, I can’t find a GT running and driving for under $4500 CAD. I don’t know what on EARTH caused these little guys to boom, but they did! What’s worse? They KEEP. GOING. UP.

1) BMW M3 (E36)

I’m not sure if I should chalk this up to it being featured in Need For Speed’s “Most wanted” (2005 release), or just the fact that it is a RWD, 6 cylinder, six-speed Beamer that pushes around 300 HP. These cars are a blast to drive, incredibly sporty, and bust out tons of luxury features we are still seeing in cars here in 2020. BMW pulled no punches with the E36 M3, and due to popularity (And write-offs/Drift builds) the value of this car only goes up year over year.
