Sounds like for the money they must have spent "restoring" a car that has no special collector's value, they could have given him a new fuel efficient car with a full 5yr 100K mi. warranty.
Roger, your such a cynic!~

Minus the stereo/alarm system, a "new fuel efficient car" would have cost at least 3 times what it cost to restore his car. If they tried to replace it with a "like" vehicle, it would have cost 4 - 5 times as much. What they did was a really great thing, and maybe, just maybe it fostered compassion in others of the community. Good thing for the alarm system though, there unfortunately are those that seek opportunity through anothers fortune.

Restoring a 10 year old car ??? whats up with that? if your going to restore something make it worth while, should have to be 20 to 25 years old, or are they not up to the to the task? Restoring is doung a collectable, rare or classic car not a 1997 Buick Lasabre, Heck I drive a 1993 S 10 maybe i should ask them to restore it,,
