Not that you lack ambition...
But do you lack skill??...Look for someone who builds rollers..you install the drive train...paint it and do the interior work or have it done. I personally know a guy who builds nothing but Cobra kit cars for people...you buy the donor/5ltr Mustang and he assembles the car and you drive it home. There is a shop locally that sells a GREAT 40 something Willies roller for 17K out the door, looks exactly like the old gassers..you install the drive train and interior or they can install it for you $$how much cash you got$$ ..its already in flat black paint...a carbon fiber kit.
