JF Launier bought bought what was left of this 1964 Buick Riveria for only $400. It didn't look like much to start but he spent a lot of time and a lot of money restoring the vehicle and it's not a very impressive custom car. The cars value has skyrocketed after Launier spent $300,000 on the restoration.

I think someone needs to look up the definition of "restoration"
I don't recall a stock boat tail Riv looking quite like that.

not restored, and the work seems cool, but the stylin? if you do this, try and finish with a car that looks 'better' then what you started with. This guy didn't. looks goofy when compared to the stock car.

Engineering-wise this is pretty impressive.
They combined bodies from a '71 and a '64, so technically its a "knife-edged, boat-tail" Riv. Plus there's the huge trunk mounted twin turbos with the piping running through the cab to a Chevy small block.

(It won a bunch of awards and was all over car mags....
....last year.)

He didn't spend $300k on it. He included the time he spent restoring it and gave himself an hourly rate (he owns a car customization garage). Not sure how much "actual" money he spent
