I had a '65 Fastback 289 3 Speed. Always required something and was a pain to keep on the road but there is nothing like it and if it is what you want, get it. There is no reasonable reason to get one but I don't suppose we are discussing a reasonable and practical subject.
As a witty neighbor of mine said once, "Go ahead and get addicted to cocaine, you will end up spending less over the long run than keeping an old car on the road."
"I never regretted any vacation that I took."
