    fixing up a 60's impala cost a shit load.....

    the C.E.O. of my record label is fixing a 68 up.

    first you have to get all your body and metal work done to get rid of all the rust and dings and what not...then you got revamp the interior, suspensio will probly need work weather you want hydros or not......


    basicly the cheapest part of the restoration would probly be wheels and tires

    in my C.E.O.s all the stereo equipment is in the trunkc and and doesnt use a head unit just a cd/dvd changer, PS2,2 amps, and 4 screens, its pushing all alpine intereor speaker and the 2 kicker solobaric 18" subs are on layaway

    thats nothin waite till my album drops and I start to work on my 73 Cuttlass coupe..

    I'ma dich the 310 hp 350 rocket and go for a 455 rocket..

    Ima raplace the interior with somthin like caddy seats, adjustable coil overs all the way around, a set of 20" wires with adapter and spinners , and finaly an audio/video system with enoughe bang to violate any city's sound ordanence

    i'ma save on the cost by doin the work myself,

    even a plain restoration will run ya atleast 3 to 5 G's ....

    cause youre gonna need some kinda metal work or body work regardles before you paint a 35 year old car..

    brakes always need lots of work, engines always need some kinda woirk, intirior would need work .......

    and probly a million other headaches.....

    I would save up 8-10K and finde one that already bein mostly restored then just slap some wheels a hide away stereo system in it

    Yeah, but who needs a PS2, 4 screens and all that shit???

    If you're going to spend money, work on the car itself. All that shit seems so stupid to me.
