    Without any hard data, I'd venture that perhaps 15-20% are either roadworthy, or can be made roadworthy with a reasonable amount of cost. The limiting factor IMHO is the cost of repairing rusted...

    Just my .02, it's likely too early to tell where Z's are going to end up on the price-curve. The market sweet spot right now is cars from the late 50's to mid 60's, and anything that rhymes with...

    I bought a set a while back, and I think I paid $250 for them, which was probably too much. They were in fine shape, but I haven't bothered to see if I can retrofit a modern lens to them, so I can't...
