As-is, the running gear will probably outlast me (all systems are semi-restored vs me on my 73'rd b-day today), but the exterior/interior aren't so great. I would call it a 50-50 car: looks and sounds great, 50 yards away at 50 mph. At night. In the rain.

I look better at a distance in the dark, too, I'm told.
Happy birthday!
