Collectible automobiles: An investment alternative?

The world’s largest insurer of collectible cars says the market is looking healthy.

Summary: The collectible car market appears relatively healthy, growing but not yet in bubble territory. The number of collector cars sold at auction is rising and collectors have been insuring their cars for higher values. But one insurer expects modest price softening at auction houses this year.

Key take-out: For investors wondering what to buy during the dip, one insurer believes the next hot section of the premium auction market will be a handful of Japanese cars from the 70s, 80s and early 90s.
