    I acquired my 1960 Austin Healey 3000 BT7 in 2005. Because of its condition at that time, many people thought I was crazy to finance the restoration of the car. It was in very poor conditon requiring the replacement of a lot of metal as well as the interior and the rebuild of the engine and transmission. I did put a lot of money into the restoration which took almost 4 years. But today, even though I have no intention of ever selling it, the car is worth twice what I put into it. I had always wanted an Austin Healey, and if I had to do it all over again I would. thumbsup image
