Of course, I also think a lot of the talk about the market dropping is done by guys who missed out on the chance to buy some incredible cars cheaply, and long for a second chance.
I have had the same realization. I have been going through interesting cars and buying a 911 for sanity between them. I have been doing this for over 25 years. I would try a 1973 Citroen SM, sell, then get my sanity back with a 78 911SC, sell it and try a 1975 Jensen Healey, Frustrated I would buy another 911, then try a 1970 BB Corvette, sell it after I got tired of truck driving and brought a 911 67S, The constant was how good 911's were and you could always pick one up easily, they were plentiful and relatively cheap. I sold my 67S for 47.5K and there was as much talk in 2007 that this was a bubble and the when housing popped the 911 market would also, so I sold for what common wisdom believed was high expecting to buy again when early S were around 20K.
So I learned my lesson, I got lucky and found another SWB S and I have a 78 930 and I will not let those go with the dream of a market crash and easy buy again.
I like 911's to much to be with out one.
