The only things i know of that look anything like that are DeLorean and Lotus parts.  My interest is piqued.

     My best projects have come from other guy's stalled projects. I recently put an early Morgan +4 flat rad on the road for about 25% if what it would have cost to buy a project car and restore it from scratch. I've restored a total of 5 cars and am restoring another currently. I actually think that I'll come out ahead on a couple of them. My biggest money pits have been a Porsche 912 (before prices jumped up) and a Triumph TR6. You make money when you buy the project, not when you sell the car.

     That being said, resurrecting or restoring old cars is a blast whether it make financial sense or not.
