One never knows until he tries!!!. I just picked up a 69 ragtop Malibu from a couple that wants me to restore it from the ground up. They had it from the day they met and want to get it back to mint again. Needs frame and all!!! They were told they could buy one for less money than I could restore it but they want that memorbila. Fix it, they said. So you see, there may be a buyer on here for just what is advertised. If they want it bad enough, they buy with price not an option. I own a 1970 Elcamino big block bucket seat 4 speed car. I may need 15 thousand dollars for some reason. I know the car isn't worth 15 thousand to the average person but there may be just that one person who wants that particular car for his own reasoning and give me what I want. And then again, maybe not. Always have that opportunity to try!!

Yeah, somethings seem a little high priced but there are some really good deals on here also. I know as i just built a new 540 BBC and for what it ended up costing I could've bought a complete T/K motor and had money left to buy a short block also. Just depends what you want and what you're willing to pay.

Times are changing. I remember when you could take an old car primered and beat up. Put a hot little motor in it and go out and have a good time racing. Now seems everyone wants to keep up with the Jones. It doesn't take a $100,000.00 to run no E, if you don't have to have the best paint job, trickest most up to date ride, along with the biggest stacker and toter home.
I remember a race I won 20 years ago, a guy came up and said this $3000.00 dollar car has done out run a million dollars worth of cars today. I took that as one of the best compliments I've ever got while racing.
But hect, now I have one of those racecars I used to love to outrun.

Don't let peer pressure force you to spend more money than your comfortable with. You can find a way to make racing fun without spending the most money and it feels better when you do good that way also.
