Future outlook of current 5.0s

I was thinking today about the future of the 5.0 and if it will be similar to the status of the 60s and early 70s mustangs when it comes to "classic" muscle cars. I'm curious if these will be sought after in 40+ years. What's your thoughts?

I think all Mustangs have a cool factor that will never go away... Even the Mustang 2 is still iconic somewhat even tho they're ugly and terrible in every way...

I think pretty much special edition models will. Like Shelbys and Bosses, think about how previous generations went. The only NE models that people really love are ones like the Cobra, Mach 1 and Bullitt.

I think so. I only say this because of the body style with the motor. 2011 and 2012 will never have a similar year. Yes the 2013 and 2014 are close but the body style is still very different. If Ford drops that body style in 2015 I think those models will too.

I only say this because other model types ran longer years of the same body style and not just 2 years. Which also might make the 2010 GT sought after as it was the only one of its kind.

That is a good point, didn't even consider any of that. The rarest will be the 2010 stage 3 roush. It's a little different than the 427r and I personally have never seen one.

13/14 should be equally as same "desireability" as the 11/12 as they are a different body style with the same engine. Boss and GT500 will be the big ones though.

These are not rare cars, in general. Hence it will take a loooong time for any desirability for collectors to manifest.

The rarest will find this quicker, like the Boss 302 LS. However, rarity does not always equal desirability in the collector world.

What we see now watch B/J on TV isn't reality and will likely never occur again. The combination of socio-economic forces driving that collector market is likely obsolete. Simply put, kids don't give a **** about cars today like they did back in the heyday of the musclecar wars. Thus, there isn't going to be a big collector market out there when those same kids turn into fat old geezers with money.

Hell, in 40 years, maybe your gen 1 Ipod's gonna be "the thing".....
