As far as the car goes write and article and try to get it published with
pictures of your vehicle (if its mint) and you will generate alot of
interest in that model which will drive the value up.

Cars are different from most collectibles because you can drive them around
where they can be seen and apreciated. Stamps, coins, baseball cards just
sit in vaults while computers are locked away in storage or somebodies
basement shrine. The older computers tended to intimidate most people while
the priceless deusenbergs were always works of art in sheetmetal.
