It's no joke.  I wish that it was.  I'm in the process of trying to sort out a few alternatives for resolving this in a fair and amicable manner.  If anyone has any advice, I'm all ears. 
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 Camaro Restoration on: February 26, 2006, 02:46:42 PM

Hi everyone,

I am the proud owner of a 1968 Camaro convertible and am in the process of having it fully restored.  It's an ordinary Camaro - not an RS, SS - that I've had for over 25 years now and, other than routine maintenance, have never had any major work done to it.  In fact, it had been sitting in my garage for the last 15 years and used very little.

I have no restoration experience and no mechanical expertise. My family keeps me pretty busy, and so I've brought the car to a restoration specialist in order to have it professionally restored from top to bottom and put back into "showroom" condition. The job has been underway for 6 months and is progessing well.

The car has roughly 120,000 miles on it.  The body was in extremely rough shape. The transmission and engine have been completely rebuilt.  The project has been very well documented with 100s of photographs.

Needless to say, the costs have added up quickly - particularly since I'm not doing any of the work myself.  Being somewhat naive with projects like this, I'm slighlty concerned that I may be overpaying. Currently, the total cost is at around $100K with about another 2 months (and another $40-50K) to go.  So, my simple question - how much would you expect it to reasonably cost for a full top to bottom restoration like this - done by a reputable and experienced professional.

Any insights or opinions would be appreciated. I'd also be happy to provide further details.
