What other (NON jeep) money pit's do you have?

Here is my 1967 Camaro project that I have had for several years. Finally getting motivated to work on it currently sanding gold, root beer ,and black paint and recently found some new tires that hold air so I can move it in and out of the garage. It has a chevy 250 that I need to get running it ran about 15 years ago. tons of work needs done almost all sheet metal needs replaced.
oh well I love this car!

So lets see your other projects!














And my 1979 Datsun 620

My 1993 del Sol that I initially got ahold of for gas saving purposes, but after coilovers, sway bars, wheels, tires, carbon fiber hood and trunk, acryllic top, headlights, taillights, Civic lip, radiator, intake, header, and exhaust anything I saved in gas has long been used up.

Now that the Jeep is done I'm saving up to replace the coilovers and build the engine in prep for a turbo so I can get back into autocross. Money and I were never meant to be together long.

Not one yet but I've been eying 65-67 mustangs as working on it would be tons of fun, though a 65-67 Suburban as a tow rig would be a blast to work on as well

I sold my money pit to get my WJ Overland. Even considering wheeling costs and various mods and accessories, its still way cheaper than my last rig. I know Jeep is "Just Empty Every Pocket" but I've found Jeeps very inexpensive to operate...only spend as much as you have to!
