A little outside of challenge budget range, but at a current bid of $10,000 it might just be worth the risk of buying at auction:

They go for around that but be prepared to get raped by the maintenance cost.

Oh my. Raped indeed. Raped with no compassion or mercy.

My guess is that it will sell for $25K or so. These fall into the category of --- I can afford to buy it, but I can't afford to own it--- type cars.

I keep daydreaming about this car:

I just see that and get the idea of "pull broken part and replace with something reliable as it happens" and then I picture FrankenBentley just driving down the freeway culling parts from everything it passes to stay alive.

Something is wrong with me I think.
