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.
