This really gets me.
About 15 or so years ago my wife and I went to a restoration facility , featured in magazines, etc.
Driving up...the place looked incredible. Inside was better, tiled showroom and we got the $5 tour. The shop area was cleaner than our kitchen (yes...our kitchen is clean!) People everywhere busy welding, polishing, wrenching.
Restoration but also resto-mods, so Chevy big blocks installed in 2 seater convertibles, fabricated tube chassis.
Here's the best part. Owner said I've saved best for last. Beside basement door was a chalkboard numbered 1 thru 10. Beside each number was a rare, valuable car. Cars like 1970 hemi superbird...1965 shelby cobra 427.
Out the door there's a 10 car storage facility, each roll up door numbered 1 thru 10. By now I'm ready to pass out.
"Want to see them?" Guy asks.
"Who wouldn't!" I exclaimed.
So he unlocks and opens a few doors, my heart pounding.
However...each bay was empty...except for a shelf in back, a few miscellaneous parts in corner and a few boxes.
Within the bay was what made a 1969 Trans Am a Trans Am...the scoops, tach, wing, serial number tag(s).
I said...wait a minute!!!!! These parts you have came from totaled cars! So you find a nice green 1969 6 cylinder Firebird, put this stuff on it, new paint/upholstery and voila! You turned a $3,000 car into a $150K car!!!!! "That's right" he said.
What you guys think of that!?!?!

It's missing Carol Merrill, or Tiffany, depending on which LMAD you favor.
