I can concur with d3C0y's frustration. It was only a few weeks ago when someone with (IIRC) a 2K budget posted a wanted ad for a Zed project, but also said he didn't have the extra coin for a towie to collect it or something along those lines, so how he ever thought he could afford to restore a car to any on-the-road condition heaven only knows.
I've twice spent 36-40K restoring a Mustang, between one & two decades ago, & that's doing most work myself with my own time worth zero. And it's much easier & somewhat cheaper obtaining Mustang parts than for our S30s. Today's costs? Probably add 50% to those figures today at a very rough guess.
So the restoration cost numbers that forum members quote to try & help & forewarn these hopefuls are very realistic, so these hopefuls should take notice. I think the regular forum members on here are extraordinarily patient.
