i see people selling the 30th anniversary model for more than $1000. is it really more valuable than the original in the box? hard to believe. I've only driven the off-road Tamiya models but this 934 looks like a piece of art!
Can you show us where you have seen such prices? I usually see them go for the normal $400-$600 and doubt its already more valuable then the original.
