Thanks, that was a thoughtful and well reasoned response. I don't really 
have any intention of having a show car; I would, however, like one that 
I could take pride in its appearance. Don't really have space for more 
than one! And I wasn't complaining about the money I'd spent, not really 
-- I'm getting close to 4OK miles; as you point out, it's pretty cheap 
per mile, especially compared with depreciation on a new car. My current 
inclination is to take a long term approach:

1. keep driving it, and when I have the money...
2. knock down the rotting shed on my property and build (or have built) a 
3. start stripping the body and evaluate it at that time...
4. meanwhile, keep my eye open for a body donor vehicle!

Keep 'em going -- that's the spirit!
