You would probably drop the same $ in a GT40 replica or a Pantera replica. Which would you rather have and which would have more resell value? I learned this at 18 when I dumped money into a '65 Falcon (non-original 289 "K" motor, 9" rear, totally restored in and out). It cost the same to restore that car as it would have a '66 GT350. I enjoyed the Falcon, but would have enjoyed it more if I recouped the $ I put into it.
