    What ten grand will buy you

    http://www.autotraderclassics.com/classi...nId=686938

    Not a bad looking car for $10K. I keep telling people stay far far away from those $1k to $5K cars that need tons of work. Spend more up front and you'll save so much more in the long run. You could upgrade to a 351 or drop in 347 stroker and have a very nice cruiser.

    And an example of one of those $3k cars.

    A way over priced Mach1 for $25K - if it really is a Mach1.

    Standard interior door panels.
    Red (not black) engine compartment.
    No honeycomb rear panel and $10 parts store gas cap.
    Super glossy red and black paint job.
    funky rear spoiler - obviously not original.
    non factory hood hold down releases.

    Let me think - drop the price in half and perhaps it will sell.

          just be careful, i was burned on a higher priced car. I tried that advice of staying away from the 3K cars, got screwed anyway.

              RE: What ten grand will buy you

              It´s amazing how prices change from country to country... The Ebay 16K car, here in uruguay can easily cost 40K.. to sell it fast...
              I had 30K offers for mine, as is... half done...

              If i was in America i´ll try to look for a solid car, uncrashed and unrestored... If i could choose between a variety of offers i´ll try to get a "virgin" car... they usually are the best projects...

              The europeanmotor.. bla bla is a typical example of what you can find in South America too... A shinny paint job and lots of "look like" parts that people here pays as it were original and made of gold Tongue

              Recently, one of the uruguayan soccer team bought a 1966 hardtop "restored" from a "friend" of mine... Payed 35K for an invention... it was not a mustang anymore... almost nothing was original cause the car sat 20 years under a tree and it was a typical junk yard car, with plants growing inside and everything... It was repait using Argentinian Ford Falcon parts... Used parts of course.. and finally, some shinny red paint all over the car... Engine compartment, floor, trunk...

              Bottom line... If you have the chance to pick a car between a variety of offers, dont buy the 500 dollar shell but either the 30K shinny car if you are not happy with the restoration itself...

              If i had to vote here.. the best car to buy posted here is the yellow one for 10K... Looks good, not that expensive... perhaps no missing parts etc...

                Don't beleve half of the prices on ebay.....I check the machs every week, MOST of the deals never go through ! I see many of the same cars being relisted for non payment. When you hear "Oh you should see what that car went for on ebay" It means NOTHING unless you can confirm in fact the deal went through. The prices paid on ebay really mean nothing in the real world. jfyi

                  Another thing to consider is the quality of the $10,000 car...if it was well kept or well restored than it is worth it. But a $10K car that needs alot of hidden work is not worth $10K...

                    No offense to vamach1's point, but it's the "tons of work" that I actually enjoy about the hobby. I guess I'm a bit of a sick pup, but I get much more satisfaction from bringing something back to life than I actually do once it's done. Weird, I know.

                    To the point, however, if you don't enjoy the work, you're certainly better off paying someone else a fair price for their previous restoration; gassing it up and hitting the road.

                      I agree with you Mike.. i enjoy the process knowing i´m restoring a piece of history somehow...

                      My reality is different... Uruguay has no mustang almoust at all, so here, every car is a great deal...
