Has the price of MGFs bottomed out?

I have had an 18 year old MGF almost since new and have had years of fun in what I consider to be the last true MGs. Do your think the price has bottomed out or will they continue to fall in value?

Despite having strong club support, MGFs are still a bargain. We are however starting to see signs that prices might be about to move upwards. True, you can still pick up rough ones in the classifieds for £500-£800, and some go through auctions and don't sell, but specialists such as Trophy Cars regularly have stock for between £3k and £6k. In 2020, the MGF will be 25 years old so I'd expect the market to bottom out around then.
