If you have heard of the VinWiki channel on YouTube, it is about time you catch up. It is one of the most popular car enthusiast channels on the platform; it is filled with comedy, insight, business experience, and many other topics pertaining to the car(especially exotic car) market. Perhaps one of my favorite guests, Casey Putsch, released a video regarding the best cars to buy that are relatively cheap. Casey is arguably the most insightful and mechanically advanced guests on the show. He has accolades beyond accolades and is considered to be very accomplished in his world. He recently listed the best 6 cars that are fast, fun, and cool but have not been affected by a ridiculous price influx. Here they are!

How did Casey do? I think he got it pretty spot on. These cars are quick, classic, and respected by the automobile community. Luckily for us, they are not TOO respected thus they are priced reasonably. Casey predicts some of these cars will see in influx in value(perceived value) over time. So get to it car lovers, obtain one of these cars while they are still hot on the market!
