Any time the money gets big, "they" come out of the woodwork. Creepy.

I don't mind concours types... or money types, aka "collectors" [which is really what started this].

What I DO mind is when the inevitable self righteous start suggesting that their way is the only true way and we enthusiasts are somehow downgrading these wonderful beasts.

It is fun to remind them that Ferry Porsche was bemused by the [mostly American] obsession with taking a performance machine, polishing it up nicer than when it left the factory, and proudly proclaiming how little it was being used. Of course, when I have reminded these types [not the genuine ..but misguided --ha- enthusiasts, but the newbie "investment" folks] ... they generally haven't a clue about what the the cars, history, Porsche family.. or any of the important things are about but they sure do know about what everything costs. If the new $$$ market collapses, they will flee like rag dolls in a storm.

Leave it alone. It is real with minimal fluff.
