But if you give it a paint job, it's worth 30,000 bucks!
It has to be, I just read it on the internet ;)
Having restored a Sprite a year to damn good condition, at least as good 
as some of the ones I see come up for sale, I can not see how anyone can 
spend 42K on a Sprite unless you pay someone for everything including 
flipping thru the catalogs for you.
A realistic cost if you *DO IT YOURSELF* is 5k, I know because I have 4k 
into the 58 last year and close to 5k into the 67 this year.  And that 
includes the price I paid for the cars.
