I cried...

Hey at least one of them lasted for 91K. They are in Hi. Shipping them back to the mainland would be more than they are worth.

Good thing they weren't from an area using salt on the roads like the Northeast.

To restore one of this you need at least $100k ,but they don't worth as much even in show condition,so why bother???!
On the other hand if somebody needs parts (engine) is a great buy!
If it was a gullwing...different story
