I purchased #6661 in July 2004 for 30K. At the time I thought it was a decent price for what I wanted. A car mechanically sound but needed cosmetic restoration. In retrospect, I probably paid a little high, as I have had to invest some money in mecanical items, and can forsee additional expenses to get the car where I want it. I now have approximately 40K plus or minus into it. I figure a good paint job (changing the color back to yellow, but a more modern yellow) and leather interior (my wife thinks it should be tan, I'm thinking staying with black) will set me back 20 - 30K. Will I get my money back . While that's not my main focus it is in the back of my mind. But, with the way prices have been going, I don't think I will be too far off. My experience and what I have heard, prices follow the cost of restoration, trailing a bit. In other words, it cheaper to buy a restored car than do it yourself. Anyway, my 25 cents worth.
