You really are that stupid aren't you. According to you crusty old Mopes are already worth thousands. Have you ever restored a car little boy, especially one with heavy rust? Let's see, $100 for the car, $1500 for replacement panels, $1000 on drivetrain, $1000 for interior. Then if you're skilled enough to do all the work yourself add 1000 hours of work at $10 an hour. So let's ad it up, carry the one... You only have $13,600 invested and then you can sell it for $7500 bucks. You just made a net profit of -$6100. You'll last about 15 minutes in the real world with those sort of business decisions.

So even though this is a bump, did you ever buy this car or anything?

Nope, my sole reason would have been to strip it down for cash, and I just got too busy with work.
