This type of ad leads me back to a discussion that I had a few months ago with another hobbyist. What is the true value of a car? Is the value determined by NADA, Kelley Blue Book, Haggerty, Ebay, or Mecum. I use NADA when thinking what my car is worth, as I believe that this is an honest evaluation and If I died tomorrow, my wife should be able to sell it for that amount. I cannot recoup all of the money that I have put into the car, or the time that I have spent bringing it back to life. I know there are some people out there who believe that they can.

Hi Mike

I don't think anyone can get their money out of a car that they restore nowadays. It is cheaper to by a car done, but for guys like you and I we enjoy the restoration process and that makes it worthwhile. One guys hobby is golf and he told me he will never get back the money he spent on green fees, clubs, etc. But he enjoys his hobby. I think a lot of people forget that about classic cars and only focus on the investment. 

For me the hobby part is my escape from the pressures of life and when I am tinkering with my project, I don't think of anything else.

One little-known fact:  In the Preface to NADA's

old-car price guide, they acknowledge that their

prices may be higher than those of some other guides.

They explain that their prices are for ALL-ORIGINAL cars.

 

I've used the book at the AACA Library.  I haven't seen

the explanation, however, on NADA's website.
