Passed that mark a month ago.

If you're gonna do it, do it right. I want to pass this one and a few others onto my kids.
I'm guessing I'll be negative $30k by the time I'm done; not too bad for the results and it will be hella fun to drive.
I drove it with the old motor and just suspension and disc brakes and was shocked at how well it drove and handled. Fairly low center of gravity, ~3400 lbs and QA1 full suspension kit is a nice combo.
Dying to drive it with 700 hp.

Well documented resto mods are fetching retarded money while "matching numbers" cars are dropping like flies.

Probably something like this to see parts of the USA I've never seen. May have to add a few more bucks.

Just priced a 2020 R8 black performance edition. $204,745. I do pretty well, but this is out of my budget.

Holy hell

I thought they were in the $125k range new.

This one is pretty sharp but still pretty damn pricey at $136k

Looks like they don't sell the V8 anymore, just the V10. V8 was in the price range you quoted.

$120K could get me a few cars from my past.

Another 72 Monte Carlo

and just for land yacht cruising, a 76 Buick Electra 225 Limited just like the one I got from my Grandfather.

Friend of mine's father in law had a navy blue/white top he bought new. I always thought it was a beautiful car.

My Grandfather's was gold with a white top and tan interior. It was one of the smoothest cars I've ever been in.

Even after he purchased a new 85 park Avenue, anytime we went somewhere together, he wanted to ride in the 76 as it had a better ride.

If I had 120K to spend on a car I would pay off my mortgage and buy a Cayman S with the leftovers.
