Lots of bills from "professional" restorers. Shows how much money you can put into these cars if you don't do the work yourself. Also, not entirely convinced that this car was finished to a high standard. Lots of things that one can note that are not quite right. Perhaps, nothing serious, but I would expect better from a "pro" and for the level of money spent.

I can't fault any major items on the build but I've seen some way cleaner undersides of other no-cost-spared builds however I still don't understand how that work ended up at $65,000.
