    Investing your money so it's safe is easy. I want my money to work for me - yes, I'd buy more stock. My only limits are cashflow and time. More of either will dramatically assist the other.

    Chap in the yard had one, sold it 3 years ago for 21k. He had an E30 M3 Evo way before the turbo, sold that for 9k, they are 50+k now.
    I had a Cooper S, sold that for 6k circa 10 years ago, noted that it went through a major classic auction house last year and made 36K.
    Another friend paid 240K for a ferrari F40 nine years ago, should think it's worth £1m + now.
    I bought an Aston Martin Vantage for 32k two years ago and it's worth the same as I paid for it but one day Rodney I'm sure it will be worth more.

  3. sadly this thread is undervalued,, £50000 , while a lot of money isnt really 'invest-able' the possibilities are too limited ,your not going to get rich off it in a hurry without a good bit of luck . To be exciting the amount needs bumping up to £250,000 atleast


    how do you make a smalll fortune out of farming

    Buy to let with a mortgage is a dead duck now interest payments aren't tax deductible. Just buy something nice that you like and enjoy car gun etc or blow it on having fun memory's are a great investment

    If you fancy a dabble on the Stockmarket, there is an investment scheme called Nutmeg. www.nutmeg.com Its fully regulated by the FCA and their admin fees are low. I have invested with Nutmeg and the yield on my investment has been 10.79% after fees but before tax since last February.

    Have to remember the new stamp duty on second homes -3% of total price in addition to the existing stamp duty charges on second property over £40k- if considering property.

  10. As someone who has looked at this on behalf of a young fiddle player (who I am assisting) I can tell you that the instrument dealers make used car salesman look like angels. You'd have to have expert knowledge and musical abilty to know what you were buying. Commissioning a new violin bow from one of the top makers might be a better long term bet; most have at least a 2 years waiting list.

    If you want a 'non exciting' medium term place to park a bit of money P2P lending like Zopa is worth looking at.
     
  11. I agree with that, but I guess the possibilities are limited at £50,000. The thread could be much wider if the budget was higher. its not my fault that its very hard to get a life changing return from £50000

    It all depends if you know or think what the next best thing will be. Take for example the old GTI era, Peugeot 205 GTI's were cheap as chips, a tidy 1.9 could be had for 2K, had you bought for example 25 and stuck them in a shed, now they'd be worth a pretty sum of money. If you can find a nice tidy one you'd be paying between 10 and 12K, so to that end, your 50K would now be worth between 250-300k. Speculate to accumulate.

    Unless you buy more than 6 at a time
     
  14. Yes lets say you won £50k on the lotto, would you really want to risk halving it if the car market didnt work in your favour.

    My mate can make a good few bob importing WW2 willys jeeps from USA, he restores them and flogs them on,, but if he restores them too quickly he risks flooding his own market and killing the sale value.
    These jeeps are currently trading for eye watering money especially genuine not post war replicas, will they keep rising?

    I'd give half of it to me, and I would give you a little, let, pony paddock near a little, nice village. Then shove the other half into five lots of five grand and put it into some decent UK shares.

    I have kept an eye on those for the last few years. The value is already going down - especially if they're unrestored.

    A rough WW2 Jeep used to be £10K - now you can pick one up for £2K.

    Head office (current applicant for the role of Mrs T Bass) says a property in Spain, peak season rent 530 euro per week.

    Sell the stock, rent the farm out and winter in the Med.
