      I've given the thread a better title. I think it'll come down to what trim level, if it's a low one (LS for example) it's unlikely to be worth much even as it ages, but the higher trims may well be worth a fortune in future, or maybe be worthless once EV's take over and robots rule the world

          V reg is' only' 20 years old, .It probably needs at least that again before its considered a classic,and worth more financially. If you put it into store unused for more than a couple of months there are various things you need to do to prevent it deteriorating. You can look these up on line.

          Its better to try and keep the car taxed and insured, and drive it occasionally. But to state the obvious, the cost of this would exceed any gain in value, Unless having it available for occasional use justifies the costs.

          You could investigate whether you could off set some of the costs of keeping it running by registering it with an agency that provides period cars for film and tv work . They sometimes film scenes set only 20 years ago (such as the recent Dublin Murders drama) and need to populate it with cars that appear new (they tend to forget to include a few even older ones that would have been about at the time)
