[Mgs] value questions

The thing to remember is, you cannot make money restoring these cars for sale.

If you can get it cheap enough, then you can flip it “as is” and make a profit. But if you don’t want it yourself, then there is really no point in investing money in it, beyond cleaning it up for appearances and making sure it runs and drives (since the premium for a driver compared to a non-runner is significant).

Let the final owner go underwater on his restoration — you don't have to be that guy.
