There are locations right now in this country where housing prices are
rising rapidly and you could "score" just like your parents (huh huh) ;-).

Cars are almost always a poor investment.

Keep in mind that in the stock market over the past few years, in a
good mutual fund you could double you money in well under 5 years.

Minus the cost of insuring it at a rate of 30-50k to protect the
investment, and maintenance and storage and transportation costs...
which would probably eat most if not all the profit.

There's almost no way you could beat the stock market, which is why
you should only buy the car if you love it for what it is and don't
care if it's ever worth anything.
