    Ultimate Collector’s Autos: The “Club” Cars - Ferrari 250 GTO, McLaren F1

    Just posted a new blog on The Ultimate Collector’s Autos: The “Club” Cars including the Ferrari 250 GTO, McLaren F1, & Pagani Zonda and a few others.

    What other cars might reach “Club” status?


    Re: Ultimate Collector’s Autos: The “Club” Cars - Ferrari 250 GTO, McLaren F1

    Loved the article.  Are people really "driving their 250 GTOs on both road and track" at the Club events?  I remember Gordon Murray saying that even he has stopped driving his personal F1 as it is simply too valuable and insurance companies are placing more strict limits on the use of the car every year.

    Seems like the Club cars should be divided into two camps:  Those that have been out of production for years (250 GTO, F1, F50, etc.) and those you can order and buy today (Pagani, Koeniggseg, SCG, T50, etc.).

    It also seems as if the actual car is only a small part of the equation.  An equal or larger component is the large manufacturer's investment in the "experience" of owning the cars with the Events, Networking, Rallies, etc.

    I'll offer one prediction, not of a car that will become a club car but of one which will not:  Any Electric Car.

    SSO is always a must read.......Till next time.

    Competely agree on anything electric.

    The 250 GTO and F1 Owners do actually drive their cars at the club events.  I think were its gotten a lot more difficult, in terms of insurance, is just trying to use them on a more regular basis.  Club events have plenty of security and in a lot of places, a police escort.

    On the two camps, I do see the point.  Only complication is you cant really just buy most of those cars today.  In almost all cases, you need some sort of into or connections to get a build slot.  

    Manufacturer's investment is critical.
