David is at least partly correct.  I actually had a person tell me that he would
NOT assist me in restoring mine because I might beat him in a concours judging. 
will refrain from telling you my thoughts of the person.

Mike Lupynec and I are in it for the same reason; it's also the thrill of the
hunt.....for the elusive part and the historical background.  All the others who
replied have hit the nail on the head.  Jay, I remember your leaf green bugeye.
Mine was a dark blue when I first got it and now is back to its' proper leaf 
(hiding under 7 coats of various colors).  I remember that fiasco and how I felt
about entering mine in a concours when I got it completed.
as cowardly as it sounds, I don't.  I rebuilt it to as original as far as 
for me and I want to drive it.  If it helps fellow enthusiasts in their project,
great!  I feel glad that I could help.  Jay's car was an inspiration.  I just 
it forward.

Sorry Leo, you hit a tender spot.  Enjoy the cars!  What a great time we'd have 
we all drove ours as much as Bob and Annice!
Done venting.
