Cool article; its easy to get excited about a car at first glance, but make sure you give it a good going over before you leap and buy it.

I went to look at a 69 Sportsroof a few years ago. The seller listed it up front as a Mach 1 clone but it looked great in the photos, I was sold before I even went to look at it. But once I saw it in person my expectations were not met. The paint was fresh, but a very sloppy job with lots of over spray and paint down into crevices that would have looked a lot better if removed from the car first. Interior parts were missing, the hood scoop was barely hanging on, but the engine sounded pretty good (302). Anyway I passed on it and never regretted the decision.

I guess the 0ld say that a pic is worth a 1000's words can work in reverse too.
