Classic cars I've thought of buying

    This reminds me of a conversation I had with one local car collector I know at his storage building... He merely has at least one million dollars worth of vintage exotic cars... As I talked with him, I mentioned about my collection of vintage photos, over ten years I have amassed a large collection of them, spent a fair amount of money along the way (I haven't ever fully calculated), in terms of dollars spent I have spent far less but I have at least 1,000 or more vintage photos, probably far more, many of them were purchased at very low cost, which is exactly what I can afford :)

    Admittedly I can't go for a drive in my collection of vintage photos, he can go for a drive in his Ferrari Dino 246, which I know would be a fun drive on the right road :D

    I live in a town where classic car collecting is a big hobby and we have about 5-6 car shows a year. From talking to the owners of these classic cars. The number one thing they tell me about why projects get abandoned is not so much for financial reasons. But rather, for lack of dedication. Most people don't realize how many years it take and the hundreds of hours of labor that's involved in a restoration project. Most of the time, people just get board/tired of it or something else comes up in life that pulls them away from it.
