Couple thoughts. First, it seems to me that the amount of time and money that it took to produce a car is inextricably linked to the car-lover's excitement meter, for the most part. I mean a Ferrari just shouts "ooh baby, you ain't never driven nothing like me." You see a one-off feature or car that is perfect, and a whole lot of time and sweat equity went into it. God bless the folks with the means to pull this off. They are good for the car lover's world. Second, when I read the article and saw the car (it is a gorgeous hot rod), the first thought I had about the grille was "now why in the world would anyone ever want to change the front grille on a model 40?"
