I get asked this question on a regular basis, people come to me and want to invest in restoring their vehicle so they can drive it for a good number of years to come, but they are not sure if it’s worth it.
Look, restoring a vehicle that’s 15-20 years old can be an expensive exercise (I know, I’m a terrible sales guy), however, when comparing the amount needed for a proper job to the amount received by selling the car as is-usually below market value-and going into a monthly debt of thousands of Rands just to purchase a newer second-hand vehicle that you know nothing about, the latter is not always the best option.
It is similar to the debate around selling the house and buying another or renovating it, same principle applies. Once you sit down and calculate the actual cost of buy/sell compared to renovate/re-build the facts become clearer.
