Someone here replied that it's the process not the product. I agree. For me it's my hobby. It all started with an old MGA. My dad and I restored it, drove it and showed it. While talking to folks at the shows we both realized that it was the experience of the restoration and the drive that was the most fun. The fellowship and knowing that we actually brought it back was the best. Although I don't purchase basket cases anymore, I still get what I can afford and try to put em back as best I can.
