Well I thought it was interesting that some people think that just because it's for fun, you should loose money on your hobbies or interests. If that was true, the gentleman who sold his hemi cuda on BJ for 3.5 million must have been shocked out of his socks to see the 3.5 mill bid. (he was not, in fact he held out and rejected 3.2 offer). Or to pay $4000 for a nos cuda grill knowing that it will LOWER the price of your cuda! But since it was for hobby, it don't matter that it was costly, it was fun! Some folk's HOBBY is to do something interesting AND make money at it, they restore a car to a great condition, they will do things right in the best way they can, they even try to buy nos and keep the car American and not partly made in "overseas"( it gives me the chills to think of the type of vehicles people drove around in "overseas" in the 70s) .To not compromise for the sake of a "budget". Those people are dedicated and serious about their hobbies and expect to be rewarded for their hard work , one can't talk down to them because they are respectful of the task they have taken on. For that dedication they should not see a loss. It's my humble opinion that it is for these reasons and for those people that outrageous prices are demanded and paid for some nos parts,knowing fully well by both parties that there will be a reward and not a loss. Hopefully!!!!!!
