Wow, after reading all that, I'm kinda scared to even post. I just wanted to say I saw one for the first time tuesday. Cool enough truck. Only three of them in town where I live. What do you think the collectability of the Raptor will be 20 to 30 years from now.
Personally, I don't see them being very collectible at all, for the reason that there are a good bit out there. Everyone that gets one has that 'collectible' mind set...so not doing much with them driving down future prices. I might put it as collectible as a 79 350 SC 4x4 on down as low as SCS is today. Or for something more recent...maybe a lightning to as low as a nascar edition. I see no real heritage behind the basis of this truck and too many being produced to be a collectible.
