    Well since he did not provide an explanation of the accident, I'm going to assume he screwed up and poked the pooch.

    At first since he showed it at the drags I thought it might have happened there but after looking at the damage the front end looks as if he hit a pole or tree or something head on.

    It's very unusual to see a wrecked Mustang.

    I admire that guys work and end product, and it's certainly a shame that it ended up like it did. But, for the life of me, I can't understand why anyone would invest that much work into that car. You can buy pretty nice ones like that for about $4K. He had way more invested in time and money than that thing is worth.

    Well Ted that is true of a lot of restored cars.

    People put more into them than they will ever get out. That is why you can get some great deals at auctions.

    I always chuckle when I read a Listing for a car For Sale, "Asking $35,000.00, $72,000.00 INVESTED".

    That doesn't describe an "investment" to me.

    If so, a damn poor one.

    Nomad,

    That is negative logic math. Ask Silver tp explain it to you.

    It's like this Nomad.

    Send me $20K (And that would be US dollars) and I will send you something in return.

    Yup, you're exactly right. I've witnessed it many times.
