It Didn't. Passed in at 200K. Genuine Bid ?
As genuine as the 2 x HT 350 autos which sold to the same guy at 310K each.

At least it is a coupe. When you see the $ asked for rough SLR5000's a 309 HT-HG GTS has to be valuable.

It's OK.
East Coast property prices are slowing so musclecars will pull back a bit.
Happened in 08 so will happen again.

Just thinking about what old Holdens were worth before the boom in 2007-8(?). is this the first time classic Holdens have boomed in value?

Sure a rare GTS was always worth a lot more than any old Kingswood, but I always thought that you'd never make much money on an old Holden. I sold a HQ Premier 253 auto for $1500 in 2005 to a mate, and I sold it to him cheaply to help him out and with a new mortgage and new baby, I needed the money. It still wasn't worth much more than $2500 back then, and had not been for years, if you know what I mean. Same car now is worth $20,000+. Not a case of sour grapes – sure I regret selling it, but for sentimental reasons (it was my grandfather's car) not because I've missed out on its explosive growth in value.

Will this continue? I guess so, given that local Holden production is ending this year. Dunno, don't really care as I'm not buying another old Holden nor planning on selling the one I have. Just wondered if anyone can explain why it's gone crazy over the last 10 years or so. Is it just that cashed-up baby boomers finally able to buy their childhood dream car? Why wasn't this big shift in values happening with, for example, a perfect example of an EJ Premier in maybe, 1996? Or was it, and I just didn't notice?

It's house prices and the effect they have on the economy in good times and bad.

They didn't want old Holden in the 90's. It was E Type Jags and building Conra kit cars. Now people are just throwing money at other people to rebuild any old car. Who knows why.

I think the XY XW GT 's started the ball rolling then it was the Holden equivalent early Monaros and Toranas and over the years those cars have become even more desirable and expensive and out of reach of most of us so them people look and the next car down and so forth. I remember myself looking to get something about 12-15 years ago the horse had pretty much bolted on a XU1 so I looked at Sandman Panel vans and HQ SS I remember having a phone conversation with Shannons insurance getting some quotes and advice and the guy telling me that he didnt think the HQ SS would ever be worth anything thinking they are pulling about 50-60 for a top one presently. I think its a combination of a lot of things why the prices have boomed the interesting thing for me is when will it burst and I guess for a lot of people they have to ask themselves do they own there cars for chance of a profit or for the love of it and you could predict the prices dropping would they sell.
