I did some very quick surfing on the Dodge Challenger that recently had a remake hit the market...
New Dodge Challenger..26K, 1970 Challenger, 80K.
Now before you bite my head off for not comparing apples to apples, I am just trying to make a point that originals can and do hold their value. Heck, one could argue the Challenger remake is more reliable and safer to drive. But why is the '70 Challenger is fetching more $? It is because it is rare. My head does a 180 every time I pass a Challenger. But when I realize it is a recent remake, I just go back to what I was doing. It is cool to own/have an original of anything.
Maybe there may be a slight hit on original values, but I don't see the market falling thru the floor for original MM's.
So let's focus on the good news!
I am very excited for peeps to be able to get an awesome machine to play.
I am also very excited to see/hear that other remakes may be coming. But I am also looking forward to my Woz coming soon as well as any other new machines that hit the market. It is an awesome hobby we are all in.
Disclosure: I own a MM that I rebuilt from the ground up. Frankly I don't care about its value. We never plan to sell it. My biggest problem is worrying about my two boys fighting over it when I kick the bucket! My hope is that it will never leave the family. Therefore I don't care if it is worth $1 or 100K.
