The Bull Market list consists of cars and trucks that have gained momentum with collectors and car enthusiast. The 2018 list was “good” but we think the 2019 is better.

The 2018 list includes vehicles like the Jeep CJ7, the Lamborghini Diablo and 996 Porsche 911 Turbo. While these did appreciate and meet Hagerty’s assumed 5% increase in value from year to year, we think the choices were obvious.

The 2019 list is a little more adventurous and at the same time, reads like the thinking-collector’s go-to choices when diversity and a smaller budget are prime criterion.

Our favorite on the list, well mine anyhow, is the 1994-96 Buick Roadmaster Estate wagon. I could have told you 15 years ago that this was a future classic – the specs long ago told that story. I’m also happy to finally see the Pontiac G8 on such a list. While Hagerty specifies the GXP, I’d say all versions are worth a go. The third generation Ford Bronco, first generation Toyota MR2 and sweet C4 Chevrolet Corvette  Grand Sport all absolutely deserve a spot on the roster.

The 986 Porsche Boxster doesn’t seem like a good fit as the 987 was far superior in almost every way. It’s easy enough to understand why the RAM SRT10 is here but the 2004-07 Subaru Impreza WRX STI seems out of place. I can see how an absolutely mint, un-modified low-mileage example might appreciate but I think it’ll miss the mark. The hyper desirable 1972-75 BMW 3.0CSL could have made a similar list in the early 80s and the same goes for a proper rarified 1984-93 Saleen Mustang.

If we were betting people with the boss’ money, we’d find a Roadmaster because wood and an MR2, regardless of the generation, and watch our investments grow.
