Finally getting to.....
I could easily see having $35-40K invested in the car to get it somewhere back to where it needs to be, not including the time I'd spend, which would be 100's of hours. I'm 67 so I have to start picking my battles more carefully and this one would exceed my timeline, among other things. If these cars were nominally seling for $50-60K, then maybe, but they're not, and not likely to in the forseeable future. The good news is it's been well cared for while on my watch, so the next owner will at least have that going for him. You've been great Bob, and as I said, this forum has been the best I've ever been exposed to. I'll stay on this forum, and perhaps we can meet at some function. I've got my '57 Cadillac on the road now, so we have two cars again in our family! Best, Dan
