Omega Values
« on: 28 October 2017, 18:07:58 »

I bought a copy of practical classic last week and was pleased to see they among others like honest john are beginning to be tip the V6 Omega as a future classic.
They are running a 3.2 Elite on there fleet and are sighting the rise in Senator prices as a reason to buy Omega's now while prices are low.

You only need to check out the Omega owners Face ache pages to see how many Omegas that are regularly up for breaking,and also  Ebay has a large number of Desmonds looking for new homes,and admittingly there is the odd V6 that will  pop up,they tend to end up on the other side of the Irish Sea ::)

They will only be worth something when there are none left, and there are still plenty out there, going for rock bottom prices, in particular in the UK, admittedly most out there now are undesired spec for the current enthusiast Omega driver or potential Collector but currently theres still more available than current demand.

Look at the 3.0 and 3.2 Ex Plods, 10 years you couldn't give them away, now they've pretty much all gone, in parts, scraped or wrecked, the few remaining good ones are now demanding high prices but its still a specialist market, my prediction for the future Classic Omega is still of the same thinking, it will be the 3.0/3.2 V6 Elites and MV6's but only the surviving good examples will begin to hold there values but were a long, long way off before they become a High Value Classic.

If the rise of electric cars continues will classic cars[or indeed all petrol/diesel cars]as we know them become worthless?manual gearbox cars would be the first to go as electric cars don't have gears ergo no reason to take driving test in a manual and so no entitlement to drive one.Then of course the push to bring in driverless cars would see the end of the driving test entirely.Not that I'll be about to see it unless they get a sudden spurt on to bring such things into effect.

It will be a relatively gradual process but, yes, the internal combustion engine has had itís day.

I am waiting for the Bang when a whole hosing estate plug in their EVs to charge overnight and discover diversity (and not the P.C. kind). ;D

As in the dance group?, for my part Iím dreading autonomous driving.
It sounds like enthusiasm is being slowly taken from keen drivers.

Oh I donít know. I was coming back from Sheffield on Sunday night, along the A6195. Dual carriageway and no traffic at all. I certainly gave my astra a good spanking. I canít do it usually because Iíve got a dog in the back.
I was pleasantly surprised at the acceleration from 20mph upwards. Being a diesel auto itís shit from a standing start.

I drove my Omega home from Colchester Uni last night, alone, and on virtually empty roads. It reminded me just what a superb car these are for the money. I didn't want to stop when I got home, I could easily have turned around and done the journey a few more times.  :)
Fact is though, its an 02 plate car with 180k on the clock, so not worth a lot.
My plan is to keep it for a few years to get my moneys worth from all the new parts Ive put on it, then replace it with a CL500, and bid a fond farewell to Vauxhall after 40 odd years.

Got to like the mv6 for semi undulating longish spells. Up to the Driver how they keep it flowing then.
