Grabbing the bull by the horns in 2022

Hagerty has released its "Bull Market" list for 2022. According to Hagerty these vehicles are the ones to keep an eye on.
10-for-2022

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. /PRNewswire/ -- Hagerty unveiled its fifth annual Bull Market list, which features the enthusiast cars and trucks that the company's market experts predict will increase in value over the next 12 months. The list is not intended for get-rich-quick flippers, but rather for future owners who want to find, buy and drive a cool vehicle they love.

This year's Bull Market list includes vehicles built between 1963 and 2012 including sports, luxury and muscle cars as well as a few SUVs.

"We compile the Bull Market list to let enthusiasts and prospective owners know what vehicles to buy now before they become less affordable," said Brian Rabold, Hagerty's Vice President of Automotive Intelligence and head of the company's team that selects the Bull Market list each December. "We want enthusiasts to know where the market is heading so they can buy the car of their dreams at the right time."

Hagerty's Bull Market Quick Takes (excellent condition starting price)

1967 Cadillac DeVille

1967 Cadillac DeVille

1965–70 Cadillac DeVille ($28,800)
Collectors long ago flocked to the late '50s Cadillacs with their iconic fins, while these more modern and usable late '60s models were largely snubbed. That is changing, but this generation of Cadillacs remains highly affordable -- particularly on a dollar-per-pound scale -- and they draw plenty of eyeballs and thumbs-up. These are tons (literally) of Detroit style for not much money.

1973 Ferrari 246 Dino

1973 Ferrari 246 Dino

1969–74 Ferrari 246 Dino ($365,800)
The Dino was a radical departure from Ferrari's traditional road cars. The engine was a V-6 instead of the legendary V-12, and it was mounted behind the driver instead of under the hood. It was this departure, however, that makes the Dino special. It is still considered one of the greatest road going Ferraris of all time -- for a price that amounts to an auction buyer's premium on most other vintage Ferraris.

1990 Land Rover Defender

1990 Land Rover Defender

1983–97 Land Rover Defender ($61,400)
There's an urbane glamour to driving the original aluminum-bodied earth-roamer, whose lineage dates right back to the 1948 original. Prices have only gotten steeper in the collector market for the few North American-spec Defenders available, no doubt driven by a micro economy that places the supply well below the demand.

1983 Mazda RX-7

1983 Mazda RX-7

1979–85 Mazda RX-7 ($17,600)
Mazda worked tirelessly for decades to get the rotary engine down, fighting mechanical gremlins and international obstacles along the way. It all came together in the first-generation RX-7, a lithe sports car that turned the performance-car segment on its head by exploiting the tiny engine's massive potential. Huge production figures mean that good ones are still easy to find -- for now.

1965 Mecedes-Benz 230SL

1965 Mecedes-Benz 230SL

1963–67 Mercedes-Benz 230SL ($80,500)
Imbued with what Mercedes-Benz's technical director called "motoring happiness," the 230SL set the Mercedes SL series down a new path, incorporating extra luxury but retaining some of its predecessors' sporting character. The 230SL also goes by the nickname "Pagoda," thanks to the functional shape of its hardtop, and the rest of the car is an exercise in understated elegance that never goes out of style.

1966 Pontiac GTO

1966 Pontiac GTO

1966–67 Pontiac GTO ($100,200)
There will only ever be one original muscle car, and the GTO is it. For 1966, the car received a styling update that ushered in the "Coke bottle" shape. That year was also the last to offer not only the 389 V-8 but the factory-optional "Tri-Power" carburetor setup. Although prices have been flat, they are starting to heat up, and now might be the time to buy.

1992 Porsche 968

1992 Porsche 968

1992–95 Porsche 968 ($38,000)
The Porsche 968 is the ultimate evolution of the Porsche 944 and 924 before it, featuring a 236-hp, 3.0-liter four-cylinder and beautifully balanced handling. Its hatchback practicality and great highway fuel economy make it a viable daily driver.

1986 Suzuki Samurai

1986 Suzuki Samurai

1985–95 Suzuki Samurai ($10,200)
Everything about the 2000-pound Suzuki Samurai feels light and toylike, but they were well built and extremely hardy in the finest Japanese tradition. When new, it was the cheap fun mobile for prom queens, yuppie adventurers, surfer dudes and RV lifers needing a dinghy to tow. Clean examples are getting harder to find -- especially of the rarer hardtop -- and more expensive as car-buying preferences for trucks and SUVs spill over into the collector car market. 

2010 Tesla Roadster

2010 Tesla Roadster

2008–12 Tesla Roadster Sport ($97,100)
Built before either Tesla or Elon were household names, the Roadster was the company's opening act as well as the first production EV with lithium-ion battery cells. Its historical significance can only grow as electric cars take over, and, thanks to a chassis borrowed from Lotus, it will always be a hoot to drive.

1983 Volvo 245

1983 Volvo 245

1975–93 Volvo 245 ($15,800)
In this era of slippery shapes designed to maximize aerodynamic efficiency, the Volvo wagon's familiar refrigerator-box profile offers a comforting counterargument. To take your crew nowhere in particular in no hurry at all is to maximize the 245's raison d'être. With a build quality designed to outlast mankind, it could just be the last car you ever buy.
