Every component of the rating decreased, and private sales activity fell to the lowest point since June of 2014. For over a year, the number of mainstream high-end collector car owners who think values are rising continued to trend down. The expert sentiment component of the rating hit it’s the lowest point since October 2010 after soft results from the huge Monterey auctions, which were held in August. An update to the Hagerty Price Guide showed median and average condition collector car values fall.
