Is that $100,000 American? Maybe in Canadian money, maybe.
Off the cuff response, it sounds completely balls-out ridiculous, but I'm
not a collector. However, when you consider that the collectible market is
pretty soft right now, and that you can have a Ferrari 308/328 for prices
in the 30's or 40's, who's going to pay that much for a 911 of any year?
What does an arbitrary date change have to do with the value of a car,
anyway? Does that mean my 92 Corolla is worth more because it will be last
century's technology soon?
