182: Greg Stanley’s 2022 Bull Market List

Posted on: January 13th, 2022 by

Welcome back to The Collector Car Podcast!

For this episode, I will review thirty cars that are moving in the marketplace.  I will review 10 cars I picked last year, 10 cars for 2022 and I will review Hagerty’s Bull Market List.  They have access to some incredible data so be sure to stay tuned until the end for those.

But before we begin, I have a few updates: Feb/March travel, consignment opportunities, website update, Porsche response, Your Cars, Your Podcast, McKay on AutoBiography(124), Geoffrey Hacker and Guy Dirkin in Classic Motorsports magazine (132).

First, I want some accountability for my previous picks from last year.  Now instead of picking 10 cars that would appreciate in the coming year, I reviewed 15 cars to buy, sell and hold.  Let’s see the results for the ones I suggested you buy and sell.  Here’s what I said last year:

Here are the Hagerty Results:
