I change my bet to mid 6 figures.
Probably closer to what was invested in it but you're first guess is closer to asking.

Crazy prices for garage queen cars that probably never see the light of day, only to be stone cold free revved by some goose for a YouTube vid when the ex Jim Fitzgerald C prod SCCA, IMSA GTU 280zx historic racer just sold on bringatrailer in the US for $155k seem so so cheap for what you get. How many million dollar phase 3 owners are rubbing their hands together for the big payday??? Someone do the linky link thing for me , I only work on cars not computers.
I was speaking with a few of the young guys at work who into cars and they have no interest in old falcons or holdens.
What will happen to the HO's when no one is old enough to be interested in them ?

My theory is that people's interest in old tech / low tech only goes back so far.
In my younger days I used to see vintage even veteran cars out on rallies on a regular basis. Now where are they? The old boys who restored them have by now long since passed on, and the cars that have out-lasted their owners are generally residing in museums.

Worth quoting just for the pic. There is a 'celebrity' in the US, Adam Carolla, who races a few historic Z race cars, not the greatest driver but he has a go and the videos are good. I would just love to see someone rock up to a historic race here with that 280ZX, cooler than cool.

This is an ex-works Datsun/Nissan 1972 Montecarlo training car driven by Rauno Aaltonen.
After the Montecarlo it was sent to Portugal and ran by the local official Datsun importers – Entreposto Comercial – as «Team Kendall» in the 1972 and 1973 Portuguese rally championship.
In November 1973 this car entered the RAC Rally with driver Mario Figueiredo and co-driver José Megre.
It was then raced until 1978 by the hands of several Portuguese privateer rally drivers.
This 240Z was fully restored and painted with «Team Kendall» livery by it’s current owner, who keeps it in his private collection. We have many period magazines with photographic references and full results history. Since 2013 it was featured in some Portuguese classic car magazines.
In 2016 entered the «Altronix RallySpirit» with driver and owner Fernando Soares, co-driven by his friend and 1995 FIA Group N Rally Championship champion Nuno Rodrigues da Silva.
This car is ready to race.

Interesting car, already sold. Note the Kobe Seiko wheels..
Not *original* because it was re-bodied into a standard road car 'shell some time ago.
Note the (standard) R/H handbrake lever position. On the original Works LHD 'shell it was on the LEFT hand side of the tunnel.
Edited to add: Probably best described as some ex-Works parts attached to a modified standard road car with the identity of a Works car.
