: Is the 09 CTS-V a collectible??

Was browsing the net and found a slideshow showing the 09 CTS-V as a possible collectible "muscle car".

What do you guys think? Some of the other cars in the list are the 2010 ZR-1, 2010 Camaro, SRT Challenger, SRT Wagon....

Should we be putting our cars in the garage and not driving them??

I own a couple of other cars that some would say are collectible. (1940 Ford and a 1964 Impala). But the one thing I love about them is that I drive the piss out of them when I get the chance.

The reason why I bought the CTS-V was so that I could drive it, and drive it everyday.

Cadillac isn't limiting production on these cars right? They will build as many as they can sell, and hopefully some of the people who buy M5's or AMG's, or XFR's will come to Cadillac and possibly buy the CTS-V.

Personally I don't think the CTS-V will ever be a collectible, but I would like to know other opinions.

In a word, no.

But it is one hell of a daily driver!

Eventually, I think the '04s will be and the V, in general, should. But not anytime soon....

Not for 20 years. Drive as much as you want! I know I do.

In 50 years, cars may not even touch the ground on tires. It will be as collectable as any other antique.

I didn't spend all this $$ on this car to just look at it sitting pretty as a garage queen. It might be a collectible to someone else, but certainly not to me. I'd drive her till her wheels fall off, and someone can collect her parts then.

So very true.

Don't be like the clowns with the big jacked up 4x4's that never leave the concrete. :hide:

In 30 years... it may be considered a collectible because it was the fastest sedan (until the ugliest Porsche in history hit the ring), and it's the 1st Cadillac to be on par with the best import sedans. I think a car like the ZR1 is one to buy and hold.

In 30 - 50 years, gas stations (as we know them) may be gone - so buying a "collectible" and enjoying it may be difficult.

A few years ago when the V1 went from the LS6 to the LS2, lots of 04 and 05 owners were saying their cars were worth more because of the collectibility and limited production of the LS6. I don't believe that has happened at all even to a small extent.

I still think the '04s and maybe the '05s have potential. But I always said it would be down the road. At least 10-20 years, anyway...
