TMCP #459: Ask Rick – If Gasoline Powered Modern Muscle Cars are Dying…Which Could be the Best Future Investment?

It’s the first show of month, and therefore time for our monthly Ask Rick segment with Rick Schmidt! I wanted to know his thoughts on the latest NASCAR happenings, the end of factory muscle cars, and of course his thumbs up or down on a selection of internet cars.  Specifically, with the gasoline powered engines of today (seemingly) about to come to an end, I wanted to know which model he might buy as well as how he would trick it out. In Rick’s words, “I like muscle cars that are optioned out like a Lincoln!”

TMCP #456 – Ask Rick, The Realities of Classic Cars as Investments; Which 2021 Muscle Cars Are Collectible?

Investing: In this day and age of huge government stimulus packages, thoughts turn to rising costs and inflation. Since our audience could invest in something, why not follow Rick’s model and invest in what they know best; cars! Rick shared that one of the lessons his father believed most was to invest in yourself first, and as such the stock market is now where he chose to invest but instead in his businesses and in assets. The car collection they curated…..wasn’t actually for an investment though, though it resulted in one. In addition they chose to purchase low mile, highly optioned cars not as speculation bets, but simply because they liked them! Some are rare, some are not, but all are special. Today if they wished to sell a portion of the collection they would certainly see a great return….but that day may or may not ever come. Why? They still like the cars!

This weeks interview is with up and coming Nascar driver Michael Self. He started around age 12 racing go karts at the track just over the hill from home. He missed more than a couple school days due to races but in high school he made it into the K&N series and decided to get serious. He said the first time he tried stock cars he knew he was hooked. Michael started climbing through the ranks and now in 2015 is driving in the Xfinity series.
