Which "old Aussie tourers"? Group C, A, STW or V8 Taxis?

Iím sure we will still see the old cars on the historic stage. I have a feeling one day the V8s of recent times will be out on the historic stage when the time comes.

To each his own, I was thinking of the v8 Supercars, GrA have an international market as do STW.
Its the cars with no claim to fame in question.

Thanks for clearing that up.
I think they'll have their interested parties here but I doubt they'll end up anywhere near as valuable as Group A cars and STW because, as you say, they have no international relevance. This, combined with the complexities of the newer Supercars, is why I wouldn't invest in one, quite simply they'll be too expensive to maintain.

You could always get hold of a reasonable chassis, drop in a BMW go fast driveline up to the diff and run it in Sports Sedans
