These cars are indeed costly after being put back together and restored. Imagine using high end Mercedes Benz in the early 1900’s that may have been the same as the President’s of a certain decade in that century. Well, in fact the restored ones looks mighty better than when it was in it’s brand new state, technology being way more advance now than then. You get a shiner one probably, and smelling more of “luxury”!
BUT they are made for luxury alone, so do not expect to have high speed. Unless you want the engine changed, then it won’t be called vintage no more. I believe them to be a collection more than a necessity…so, if and only if you have the means to collect do I recommend you to have one of these as compared to our very own “vintage cars of the future”.
