> Financially? In a word. NO!

Definitely not! In my case, I had the choice of buying a car for $2000 that was in good shape but needed a lot of work. I'm in the middle of fixing it up, and I'll probably put another $2000 plus countless hours. Will the car be worth $4000 when I'm done? Doubtful, with all of the hidden rust and body imperfecions.

On the other hand, I'll have fun fixing it up, and wind up with a pretty sweet machine. What else would I be able to get for $4000? Probably nothing that I would enjoy driving as much as this one.

What needs to be done with the car? How much would it cost to get the basic work done to keep it in good running order? (much different than a full restore!)
