    They are dropping gradually, but the Rose Mist's are especially rare! I'm hoping it finds a good home as well. I think values will only start going up when there are about 100 left that are in a solid good condition or better.

    Car has an Awesome pair of SHO owners!

    Sorry if I mangle the spelling - The Angermeiers from Wisconsin. Long time SHO fanatics, no disrespect to Josh, I'm sure the car is in an even better place.

    Were I to ever sell my dirty girl, I'd be very pleased to know it went to an owner who could keep it in top form better than I. Kris and Andy invested wisely, and I expect Josh would be happy that his car went to well-known enthusiasts. :boink:

    I chatted with Josh on Facebook last year and he said it was time to move on. Never thought in a million years he'd get rid of his RM.

    If you are into high performance cars there is so much out there right now, even 6 cyl cars pushing 400 hp. It is a far cry from the 90s when the SHO was truly the car. Lots of 4 door sedans with nice horsepower as well, not much in the manual trans department though but still some nice cars out there.

    Plus, at current value levels, if you do not have a lot of spare funds it can be hard to justify keeping an SHO that has any sort of significant crash damage. One day these cars will be worth some real money in the collector car area, but not yet. It will likely take another decade.

    It will take awhile until these cars are worth anything more than just used cars.

    I agree with Bill.
    So it will be my wife's car for a while.

    I agree also. I think you are looking at a decade at least, that is, they need to be 30 or more years old. In the meantime, you really have to just love them for what they are, rather than what they might be worth.

    Hi,

    I repaired some damages on mine after a hit (old women who doesn't make his stop correctly hit me on the side).

    I have long ago a discussion with E1 about the color. I was able to found a fender to repair mine from a SLO. I'm in Canada and all SLO here were made at Chicago plant (contrairy to SHO coming from Atlanta). Then, we can see a difference between the rose mist from each factory, different life of the specific cars can do difference too (but with province climate and similar mileage).

    It's a temporary replacement, we bought a house last year and I don't have money to repair it completely. Because this color is pricey to repair, I think I will proceed by steps (body form and then color) and it will better to control cost and job quality (don't want 3lbs of body paste onto it).

    Any advice will be appreciated, thanks (all internal parts are repaired).

    A lot of body shops are able to pop that kind of dent back out with the proper tools. We got hit with a hail storm a few years ago, and they were able to make the panels like new, no bondo. The paint would be an issue where it was damaged, unless it only hurt the clear coat.
