seems to be the crossroad I'm at. I was planning on driving it a few more years and getting some use out of it, but it's just looking at how much it'll be to get it back up to where I would want it to be, and it looks like it could go to $1-2k without much effort. What am i really willing to put into it

karmann ghia

Kinda curious where that wheel came from because it doesn't look like it came from that car unless it had some pretty serious mods

Frank logic: I need to do maintaince, but I don't want to do it outside. I should buy a house so I can work on my car inside.



Has anyone had experience replacing the batteries in keys?

I doubt it'll get that high unless you're doing some engine/drive train work. Once you fix the window regulators and key, you'll definitely be less annoyed.
