Non-English speaking laborers without skills and with no legal documents in Los Angeles are getting $25 an hour ($200 a day cash only) plus free lunch. If you refuse to pay that amount then you get no laborers. Compare that to skilled craftsman working on a classic vehicle and you can get an idea of the cost to restore. Sadly, due to the extreme cost of restoration few buyers have the funds available to start much less finish a project. This 1934 Buick series 90 has parts that if sold separately may total above $10,000. With labor so high I would think $100,000 to restore this behemoth full classic vehicle to A+ condition would be cheap. Yet, how many buyers are there that will pay the price above $100,000 for this 4-door club sedan vehicle? Most millennials do not even know how to drive a stick shift and they have never heard the phrase "mechanical brakes". Without power steering they are in fear of parking the 5,000+ pound classic. It will not be too soon that we see pre-WW2 vehicles in just two categories: [Category #1]: cars treated like the 1870's carriages powered by a horse which means few if any are ever driven. How many carriages (other than the Amish) do you see in a year on any road in any State?; [Category #2]: Sitting in a private garage of some beloved Uncle collecting dust or sitting in a museum with a placard that gives some minor statistical information for the museum attendees like they do at the Nethercutt Museum in Sylmar California (which museum is closed due to COVID). As time passes I appreciate more the people who turn their vehicles into resto-rods as at least their owners get to drive and enjoy the vehicles without worries that the 80+ year old engine or driver-train wont fail.
