     After giving away 10% off the top to charities, I would buy an old average car like a Maverick or a Gremlin and pack it with extras so you wouldn't know what it is really worth. That way you wouldn't have to worry about people targeting you because your driving around an obviously expensive car.

        Good luck finding a Maverick or Gremlin that still runs. I am sure that there is one out there somewhere. Even if you pack it with extras is still would not be worth much!Big Grin Santa

      I always say if U can't find the antique and or collectable car/truck/van yer lookin for and your friends can't find it.... then :

      1. you need better friends

      2. it wasn't collectable enough for even the most uncommon market place

      Mavericks and its sister car the mercury comet R a dime for the couple dozen specially for ones you have to put back together infact as I hear it most of them are free if U promise to tow it away asap
