i would GLADLY spend that amount for the right car.  I have spent probably
20-25K on building my car the way i want it.  10K for something done the
right way is A STEAL...sure maybe not for an "old" car.  but, for the right
buyer it is.

my car has been through 2 complete suspension iterations, 3 exhausts, 2 audi
systems, 3 interiors (well starting my 3rd), 3 sets of brakes, on my 4th
now, countless small mods, a mild head build on the 3.6 and now a wicked 4.2
conversion (yes ron, i am not as fast as you.  but i am home 40-50 days a
year, and unlike my coupe build, i am doing the V8 myself).  I have had
countless wheel and tire combos on the car and on and on and on.

anyway, i have all my receipts and i currently have an agreed value on the
car for 24K if my memory is right.  of course none of this includes my

ahhhh, for the love of S-T-U-P-I-D-T-Y!
