I'm an aging Baby Boomer who owned a real '57 Speedster that I bought for $1500 in Denver in 1965 when I was 20. I absolutely loved it. Had to sell it 2 years later for $800 when the upkeep was breaking my college student budget. Never expected the value to go nuts decades later, but realistically, I couldn't keep it under the circumstances.
I never stopped loving the car, and seeing Speedsters in various movies like Top Gun and Doc Hollywood has only raised my angst. Got the hall pass yesterday from my wife of 54 years to see about having one built. Chanced onto this forum and am hoping some of you could give me insights into how to proceed. Any advice would be appreciated. Not after anything more than a basic vehicle I can drive. Interested in reputable builders, approximate costs, etc.
