Question for everyone about my Lemans.

By Redneck_Cowgirl

I will start with say the Chevelle is down. Crank broke, he pulled the engine out and has painted it just waiting on the new parts to arrive. He didn't know the big blocks had to have the oil that had additives in it. And he claims to be a mechanic? Kidding on the last one....

I am kind of an impatient person. Have had the Lemans about 2 years. I want to drive it. It runs. Just no seats, no back window, and a ton of work and about $7000 in front of us to get the car like it was when it was new and another 5 yrs. It is all numbers matching, that is the plus for it. I have been tossing around the idea of selling it. With any luck I could get out of it what I paid for it $1700. Let me know what you think...Sell it or keep it...and why on either.

Keep it! These cars are now a better investment than anything out there with this economy. Between my Dad and I we have 4 cars. My '71 Camaro Z28 RS, '67 Chevy C-10 Truck, '68 GTO and a '57 Thunderbird. And the great thing about it is I don't mind putting money into them because I know I will get it back and then some IF I eventually sell. Which I highly doubt.
