Economics & Investing For Preppers

Here are the latest items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. And it bears mention that most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of JWR. (SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor.) Today’s focus is on classic cars as an investment. (See the Tangibles Investing section.)

Tangibles Investing (Classic Cars):

I recently attended the annual “Lost on the ’50s” festival in Sandpoint, Idaho. It included a simultaneoustwo-lane vintage car parade that lasted 40 minutes!  It was great seeing those hundreds of great cars and trucks. There was a huge enthusiastic crowd. It reminded me how America’s love affair with classic cars is almost universal. Recently, there has been a slight dip at the high end of the market, and a leveling of prices at the low end. But I still highly recommend investing in pre-1973 classic cars and trucks, if you have any extra garage space. And if you lack garage space, then you might consider buying or better yet building a hard-top Rat Rod of some sort. (With those, fading paint a bit of expanding rust is not detrimental. Rather, it is desirable “genuine patina”.)

It also bears mention that classic cars and trucks are essentially EMP proof. That is, if their traditional points-rotor-condenser ignition system is left “as is.”

News Tips:

Please send your economics and investing news tips to JWR. (Either via e-mail of via our Contact form.) These are often especially relevant, because they come from folks who particularly watch individual markets. And due to their diligence and focus, we benefit from fresh “on target” investing news. We often “get the scoop” on economic and investing news that is probably ignored (or reported late) by mainstream American news outlets. Thanks!
