Five Car Hobby Predictions for 2018 – Kurt Ernst, Hemmings Daily

2018 Car Hobby Predictions From Hemmings

 

2018 car hobby predictions from Kurt Ernst at Hemmings, the article begins with a recap of the 2017 predictions, scarily accurate!

Here’s the 2018 headlines:

1/Electric cars—including classic cars with electrified drivetrains—will become more commonplace.

2/Expect to see more museums close and more collections head to auction.

3/Long-ignored cars will gain in appeal among a new generation of collectors.

4/After five-plus decades of speculation, the mid-engine Corvette will become a reality in 2018, but we’re betting this will be a separate model and not a replacement for the C7

5/Motorcycles will continue to climb in value at auctions, even as ridership decreases.

Before there was a Tucker 48, there was a Tucker Torpedo.
