Probably the thing least likely to be in demand tho, are mass produced things that were originally sold as "collectable", because everyone that bought them has them stashed in a drawer.

Steve,

Thanks for reminding us of this immutable characteristic of collecting.

One of the things that has kept the resale price of Plymouth/Chrysler Prowlers relatively low or stable through the years is the fact that almost everyone who bought one kept it in pristine condition as a "collectible" car and very few have ever been used as daily drivers.

The fact that a high percentage of those built are still in showroom condition has kept them from appreciating as an investment.

I always liked the look of them, though.

;-)
