Alas, too old to be 'modern era', to new to be "classic".

But you can always look for a silver lining as you make lemonade. Stuff is new and pricey, then it is used and ages and becomes less desirable, dropping in cost. Then it gets old enough to become special interest and even historical and antique, and the price starts to rise again. (Admit it: you wish you'd bought that '65 Mustang you saw for $900 in 1981.)

If you catch things at the bottom of the trough, you can buy those lovely things you coveted and couldn't afford when they were new. I've got my eye out for a turn-of-the-millennium 54cm Trek Postal.
