Thanks. I'm glad you shared that. I bought my car for $15K in '97 and started restoring it (aka writing checks). Last summer, when I finally put it on the road I added up the resto reciepts for insurance purposes. Added up to $62K.
Now when I see primo cars going for $30K I get sick. But we have to remember, that not too far down the road these cars are also going to need all the rust-resto and updates that our cars already have, and that kind of skilled labor isn't getting any cheaper!
Besides, what kind of new car could we buy with $62K, a 'Vette? I see 10 of them every day. And since my odometer just turned 12,000 mi. I guess you could consider my '72 Pantera sort of new.
I guess I shouldn't feel so sick after all.
