    With a $9990 Black Friday deal, MkVIII IRS, ~3-4k in options, 91' fox donor, selling off donor parts, wheels, tires, brake lines, mods, and a lot of blood/sweat... I'm at about 25k pre-paint. I started my build back in 2013, so even attempting that target may be hard to achieve now-a-day. No real point to this post other than to add another data point.

    Best of Luck!

    Yeah 9K is kind of hard to hide. It has to be in small orders across some time.

    I have done what you said you are not going to do. I stripped the motor and transmission from my Vette for the Hot Rod. I am also pulling the rear end for my next project which is a 23 Model T. It is already set up for a Corvette IRS so I will get parts for two cars out of it.
