Some years ago, before the economic crash, I went to Kisseemee Florida NCRS show one winter, and so there were a whole bunch of C1 type builds outside in the sale/show corral and they looked just GREAT!@!!!!.....when these get done surely they could join the group, easy......the prices were around 120k to 150k now if anyone actually GOT that kind of bux is unknown....

but my point is, they were asking more for the updated beautiful C1's than then the NCRS resto cars....
