[DML] Re: Rule of 20

"Tuxr" - you bring out a very good point.  I have owned Winged1 for 
nearly 18 years, and have done countless upgrades and repairs to 
her, including many things that required fabrication of custom 
parts.  Including the original purchase price, I really doubt that I 
have made it to $20K yet.  The reason is that I have done virtually 
all of the work myself (with a handful of exceptions).  We have 
other members in the local club (www.pndc.org) that have hired 
everything done by automotive shops.  I know one person who says 
that he has well over $40K into his car, and it still has quite a 
ways to go.  Most of that is, I am sure, the high cost of labor.  I 
saw one car hanging on a lift at a shop that had a quote of over 
$500 to replace the trailing arm bolts!  It was a 5-speed to boot.

Actually, any "rule" should really be two rules, one for those who 
have the skills and capability to do the work themselves, and one 
for those without those skills and have to get it worked on at a 
shop.  Two entirely different cost structures.
