I think it is a classic already.

I think the "classic cars" for my generation will be the AMGs, Ferraris, and Porsches that us 80's guys grew up with. 500e will certainly qualify.

I'll be hanging onto my 500SL AMG - that's for sure.

I agree. Eighties cars will go up in value as have 60's muscle cars. The reason being is that as we come into our 40's and 50's we have the disposable income to buy the cars of our generation and with which we grew up.

The 450slc? You got to be kidding unless they are talking about the 5.0. Although a decent car they will never be a classic - the hardtop styling just never really looked right and they are overshadowed by the much superior W126 coupes whose styling was dead on.
