    I liked this young man's video about buying a 1970 hemi Challenger clone. It's not a short video but he goes over the things that are 'wrong' with the restoration. Also some very valuable points about bad shippers. He paid $60k for this clone and will probably need another $30k+ to make it the way he wants it. Probably worth it since the real deal hemi Challengers would be double or triple. He obviously has the $$$ so nothing to feel bad about.

    ^^^ Yeah, I heard that too but he did put up 383 on the screen after he heard it himself.
    I like seeing young guys get into the hobby, and he wanted something like his Dad's first car.
    With all the $$$ this guy apparently has I am a bit surprised he didn't go with a reputable shipper. They screwed up his battery and messed up his tranny apparently.
