Which car to choose?

I have been looking for a pantera for some time now...
Im feel kinda like at child in a candy store (the trouble is that all the candy looks great on the picture)
But as most other things price and quality probably follows. Where do you think I would get most for my money?

A solid standard car. price 35-40k like this:

A (once upon a time) fully restored car like this: (price 40-50)

Or a newly restored car like this: (price 50-60)

Some of my thoughts:
Why would anyone sell a car that they just restored? like no. 3
Maybe no. 2 is as nice as no.3 even though no.2 is restored 17 years ago

So give me your thoughts on what is the best buy?
