Yeah I'm not rich either. Of the three cars I posted, one is the Model T given to me by my father who got it from his father who actually USED the car in his painting business. Of course I did pour about $9K into the restoration....over time, back when I was single and making the "big bucks." The others came with time, got good deals and fixed them up as I went. Yeah you do need some level of money to devote to these cars but believe me I am not as rich as people think when they see my car collection. Now my friend with the 1929 Lincoln Sedan previously owned by Clara Ford, and his Lincoln Roadster....now there's some bucks!!

Sorry Dick, but I have to disagree with you about the Corvair handling. I own about 16 Corvairs, all between 1962 and 1965, and never had a handling problem with any of them. My main driver in the 60's was the first one I bought, a 1962 Corvair Spyder. I could do a 4 wheel drift on the cloverleaf and never had a hint of loss of control. It was a great car until some jerk ran into me and totaled it.

Over the years I have learned you shouldn't buy more cars than you can keep inside a garage and take care of the maintenance. Thieves, vandals, and nature aren't kind to them.

My A doesn't leave enough oil on my garage floor, so I keep this parked next to it...

A '28 Nash sedan, purchased for $50 in 1970 when I was just 16 and dismantled around 35 years ago (a bad decision in retrospect!). Bits of it have followed me around the country since then, while other bits have remained at my parent's house. I now (hopefully!) have all of the bits under one roof at my home, for the first time since around 1980. Restoration starting date = ???

My wife's 1970 Cougar XR-7 during the restoration and after. We stripped it in the drive way. And no it was not warped from the blasting.

Unfortunately the scumbags are everywhere, and I've had the worst luck out in the country. At least in closely populated areas sometimes you have good neighbors that can watch out for your property.
