Finding a project car that you can work on yourself or have someone else work on is getting more expensive with the fewer cars available to choose from. These cars can still be found in barns, garages and junk yards, but they are slowly disappearing due to the rising gas prices and the miles per gallon that these older cars get. But you can still find a project muscle car to work on if you are willing to spend the money. Not only are the cars pricier, but the parts are also. Many of the older cars will have to have a total restore to make them look presentable; this is everything from the engines to the body and the interior. But in the end it is worth it.
If you find the right car for the right price or if you are able to negotiate the seller down to where you are comfortable with the price you can find great deals out there for the vehicles. If you are also able to do the majority of the work yourself or with a few buddies you will surely find it to be way less expensive than if you had to hire someone to rebuild and restore the entire vehicle yourself. Some of the things are best left to contracting someone else to do it, we always had the interior done by someone else, in the long run it was easier and cheaper for us and we got the professional looking end results.
If you spend some time researching old car pricing and what they are worth, you will be able to find a bargain and call it your own. You can then take your time restoring it, working on it nights and weekends and have it completed in a short period and soon you will be able to restore your project car into a memorable piece of history.
