The only problem is Randy, some of those old guys what we both love so much, they really didn't BUILD the car very well. They styled it like art, but the build it's self, YEOW. I have had the good fortune of being around some of these cars in shops being restored or repaired and seeing them "naked". Some cars that I have drooled over in the past were MILES from well built. This hasn't changed my view of them, they are still art and I know the quality of most builds have went up over the years, it is what it is.
This goes for "show cars" in general, seen a couple very famous cars that won BIG awards that were miles less than stellar naked.
