Well now that just depends. leaky plumbing now that just scares the hell out of me. Maybe I am selfish but I am more concerned about that then the price of building a hot rod. OK all sillyness aside, there are 200,000+ people on the HAMB, a good percentge of them are under 30. If a third are under 30 that would be about 66,666.666666666666666 so lets just round it to 66K. If I live to be as old as my grandad that is another 30+ years. If half of those 66K live to be as old as my grandad that is another 70+ years. So that is 33k more or less that are at least interested in "traditional" rods & customs. Now there may be a few that get influenced by them and also get at least interested in "traditional" rods & customs. They may get to our point in life and say, "Well GEE Willackers whos going to carry the ball when I am gone," and still have another 30-40 years to ponder it. I just don't see it being that bleak no matter what the cost becomes. Of course I could be mistaken. Well then look for me at the train station.
