When people think about car accident damage, there is a natural urge to solely focus on the exterior of the vehicle. While the outside of the car is the point of impact and the area most affected, you can also have damage inside your car. When vehicle owners put off collision repair because they think it is solely a cosmetic issue, the interior problems that damage causes can quickly highlight that the damage can also hinder functionality.
There are a lot of concerns you have when you own a car, but you learn to deal with these concerns because having a car is worth the worries for all the positive things they bring to your life. One thing you may not give much thought to is hail, and ironically, a hail storm can wreak havoc on your car and leave you with a car that has a lot of damage.
Buying a car as a future investment may seem counterintuitive. After all, most new cars lose a significant portion of their value as soon as you drive them off the dealer's lot. That value only continues to drop as you put more miles on the car.
However, some collectible cars appreciate drastically over time. For example, there is a multitude of entry-level American muscle cars from the 1960s that are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars today.
