Actually, the only reason I was interested in this whole thread is because I
could have the car for practically nothing.  The thing has been sitting in his
basement (in front of the completely disassembled 1940 something Jaguar) for
about three years, tags expired about two years ago, two flat tires, cat tracks
all over the dust on it.  But the car is in damn near perfect shape!  He just
lost interest in the thing (bought it for nothing, fixed up the interior and
exterior, then couldn't drive it.)  If I could get it and fix the engine and
sell it for a thou or two, it would definately be worth my while :-)  Money
pits?  I drive an AUDI, what could possibly be WORSE???
