I was cleaning up the garage over the weekend and thought I'd consolidate all the 2002 receipts that were scattered throughout my drawers and in my roll-a-way. While doings so I started to add them up in my head... stupid me.

Anyone else ever make this mistake?

'68 project - probably could only get $3000 or so as is (more with paint) ... spent WAAAAAAYYYYY more than that so far.

Knowing where you stand with your car addictions, er...investments, yeah that's it: investments, is never a mistake, Todd, but...

I'd suggest replacing your reciept "book" with an election ballot box. That way you can keep it locked while depositing reciepts in a happy state of bliss, after giving the key to your wife, friend, local safe deposit box, etc. A good advantage to this is that when you can no longer press, jam, or mash another reciept into the box: you'll know it's time to sell the car! Of course I'm currently working on my third box right now, so "do as I say, not as I do"...;D

happy monday to ya...

on the '68 I would be a poor man.

Wife - "Your roll cage arrived from Kirk Racing today. I think while you spend the weekend installing it I'll take the opportunity to get out of the way and go to Nordstroms. Can I borrow your credit card, the reader on mine seems to be a little worn and doesn't work anymore".

when I'm done hurling money at my project (10-12k) I'll basically have a new car. Where else can you get such a snazzy auto for such short dough?

And don't even think about using Quicken or something... :-) (I'm lucky I had already done my engine and stuff before I bought a computer...)

OMG!! I was blissfully stupid until then. Now I have started selling extra parts and bartering for new ones.

body, etc. Where did all that money go? ;)

The only time you should have a list of costs is when you go to sell the car. That way the new owner will think they are getting a great deal. Just have someone else prepare the list so you can't change your mind about your 'investment.'

I document Parts upgraded, replaced, cost and date. Plus, I have all receipts since the car was new including the original window sticker. I have owned the car for a year and a half. I bought it for $4k and have spent over $5 in that time. The car still needs to be painted and brakes upgraded. The paint will be the most $$$. I am dreading it...but I can't help my illness.
