Like you said, you'll get many answers on this. In my opinion, if a guy scrounges around for steel and parts and is able to do all the work himself including welding, he could put together a running car from scratch for around $5000. I know there are those who will say they can do it for less, but I think 5K is realistic for a simple, running example of an early rod.
