OLD AGE AND TREACHERY WILL OVERCOME YOUTH AND SKILL.
And on the eighth day God said, "Okay, Murphy, you're in charge!"

A lot of effort, not to mention money, goes into those vehicles.
Yes, these old car guys sometimes spend three or four times what the vehicle will be worth once they are done gilding the door lock knobs and powder coating the frames.Once they go to sell them, they are puzzled why they spent $75,000 on the car and it only sells for $25K. I'm not puzzled: nobody cares whether the frame is powder coated or not. Or whether the door lock knobs are gilded.
FreddHobbies rarely are an "investment". Hard lesson from the car biz, something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay (or loan money on).I once bought (around 1999) a Dodge Shorty "Surfer" van for $300. At the time that was all that was in my "mad money" account. Told the couple what I would give them mid morning. Late afternoon they were back. Wasn't something for our lot inventory so I kept it for myself. Had it for eight years.
Too bad I didn't know about the show. Would have been fun to go see the cars.My insurance company now values my old Toyota at about three times what I paid for it, which is about $3k more than I have in it.But I didn't buy it to make money on it.
drjimIt isn't always about the money. My old 86 Mighty Max isn't worth much but I have people offer to buy it.
Yep, I bought mine to drive, and not be a Garage Queen, although she does tend to sit more than move!But we're planning on taking care of that this summer.
One of the few Toyota cars I liked.
Nice! And yeah, that's NOT an original Studebaker Pickup. Body on a 'newer' 4X4?
Old NFONot doubting you but how can you tell? Per my sister who was at his place on an insurance claim, the owner is a Studebaker collector with a large collection.
