Back in the 1960s my dad got tired of the stock market, so he 'invested' in a 1906 Model N Ford.
He bought it at an auction for $14,000 and it ran, but every time he got it going, the radiator would start leaking, so he only drove it a couple of times in the 4 or 5 years that he owned it. It was in excellent restored condition, just beautiful, really.
The tires were narrow, with the words 'non skid' making up the tread.
Finally, he sold it to an 'investor' in the Netherlands, and I don't know if he made a profit.
