Unlike almost every other car club, we have a set time when they will just stop being around. Yes some prime examples will show up in 20 years, if allowed to be driven, but for the rest, fade away...into the vortex.

Yes It is Written in the Book of Mercury, that when a Marauder hits the 400k mark it will ascend into the heavenly vortex and will be magically restored and driven by cool spirits in heaven. The spirits will form a message board where they will post up cool stories and tech tips about their heavenly Marauders. It will be a site filled with many cool people and lots of knowledge. And unfortunately one guy who will waste all of heavens bandwidth posting about wanting to acsend to a heavenly jaguar or VW built in a glass factory by midgets with fingers that smell of angel butt, or the fact that he thinks the cherubs are watching him do things inside his office with comfy furniture, and one mysterious stain on the wall that looks like coffee.

Do you think the Marauder, now getting to the old mark of 5 years since they stopped making it, will just fade away, a few examples showing up to blast around the streets or track and the rest fade into the junk yards and used dealerships until they are almost all gone.

At what mileage point will the Marauder just stop. Will any make the 400,000 mile point?

LOL, that's why I never ignore anyone. Too much funny stuff gets missed. I'm like a moth to a flame when it comes to funny stuff. Laughter is the best medicine, besides his posts are innocent enough. WAY out in left field sometimes, but who doesn't do that occasionally.

my dad collected Kaisers and Frazers they haven't been made in north America since 1955, and south America since 1967. plenty of folks wander into my parts store and remember Kaisers and generally have nothing bad to say about them. (they were slow, but well ahead of their time)

my marauder gets a lot of attention, plenty of car folks know what it is, and how special it is/was.

in 25 years it will be remembered much like many desirable 1960s cars that we could have gotten if we had wanted them then, and could have gotten cheaper used later (but didnt) then suddenly shows up at auction bringing rediculous prices for a short time. these things come and go in cycles, diminishing numbers, and severly modified and abused cars will increase the value of the remaining nice examples.

very few cars show appreciation five years out, especailly in a recession.

I unfortunately don't predict a solid future for these cars. Perhaps a couple will bring news years down the road of collectors buying up the best of the best for ridiculous money, but in general fade away like the others.
