  1. Not so sure you are going to be able to buy the quality everyone mentions for the 6k would be nice if folks gave some pricing comparisons for all of us to ponder.

    Cooper Duesenberg at auction

    while discussing Duesenbergs- does anyone know where Cagneys J581 is? about 25 years ago, bought my 07 Maxwell DR from a Canadian fella at Hershey. His father had one of the largest collections of cars in Canada and he told me that his Dad owned Cagneys Duesenberg. His Dad sold it at the top of the mkt and afterwards, kicked himself everyday for the rest of his life for letting it go-because he didnt need the $. Just wondering where it is?

    69 GTO Restoration Costs

    GTO, thank you for the update. To answer your initial question- yes you are correct, you have been totally screwed. There is nobody on this thread who can justify what has been done. This isnt just bad communication, but why people get divorced daily. I have to agree with Zimm-there is NO way I would have allowed this to go on for 3 years. I would have just given the car up and seen a good attorney.....
