It should be inspirational for those taking on restorations that seem
to be WAY too much work. Where there is a will there is a way.

This is a Corvette convertible which was stolen and burned. It sat in
the owners driveway under a tarp for 10 years before its "Savior" came
along and took it home. It looks like a parts car to me. Watch the
progress in low resolution pictures and simple text updates.

Just think I thought I had my work cut out for me on my Lark. I have to ask, I wonder how much money he has in that car now. He has done a TON of work on it.

I've learned that's a question best left unanswered. (Especially when the wife's within earshot. )[xx(]

I think that really comes down to how much work you pay someone else
to do, and how much work YOU do yourself. Its amazing how much that
will change the cost. It looks like he did most the work.
