For those who got a good laugh out of it, I guess that's a secondary benefit.

    Although I obvioulsy would have preferred to now tell each mechanic not to rebuild the knuckles every few months, I don't particularly regret what I spent. I bought a really well equipped and well-used car, which allowed me to immediately take off on adventures. I should note that I never had any mechanical issues on the road with it, so I don't think it was mis-maintained by previous owner (and 2nd mechanic), but I did have a zero-compromise approach to doing whatever preventative maintenance was recommended. Now it's quite well-restored and will hopefully continue to bring me good times for years to come.
    Enjoy the LC. Thats why you have it.

    i am also looking at spending quite a bit of money on mine, lot of the same stuff you already did, and happy to do so.

    knowing it is well restored/maintained is a great feeling and to me worth more than a new vehicle

    enjoy yours
