‘74 MB 280C - traded for paint/rust repair/6-conversion mods on the 914

Sometimes it's about the process, not the money. I had an offer to take and restore my Auto Red Bug (1926) but the folks on this board convinced me to do it myself. It's still in pieces in my garage, waiting for my retirement (and I am looking forward to restoring it then).
