Steve Linden quoted in : Classic Cars: Passion or Profit? : Pall Mall Art Advisors – September 25, 2019
CSM’s comment in this article published by Pall Mall Art Advisors, a firm which focuses on tangible asset management, was that interest in the “Preservation Class’, or ‘Survivors” continues to grow. Survivors can generally be described as those that are running and usable, and are in unrestored condition, notwithstanding consumables such as tires, belts, hoses, etc. Owners often face the decision whether to maintain the car in its current condition or undertake full or partial restoration. In many cases that answer is quite clear, in others there can be a debate. Much of this rests on the rarity and the provenance of the automobile and how values might be affected by the different routes taken.
