This is what happened to the rusty Sagan Spyder. 
http://rides.webshots.com/photo/2559978060031448095jGChOV I am presently 
fitting the hood and engine lid.  I painted it just before the warm weather 
went away.  Now to assembly.  You may see the process here 
http://rides.webshots.com/album/233356382dqYpqr  Was it worth it - I don't 
know.  I have done all the work on the vehicle.

Some "Swamp Things" can be worthwhile like Carl Sagan's Spyder ?

Whatever happened to this car ~ is it worth restoring because it has a place
in the science books ?

Pretty bad shape, but some justification for having more than scrap value ?

Probably worth more than the newer Spyder in the other picture !

I wasn't comparing the two cars. Just showing what some people think is
worth $6500 and is "restored" I would have been really upset if I had
purchased that car on eBay for $6500 and found out it had visible rust holes
in a restored car.
I went to look at a "really nice" Vega about 20 years ago. I called the guy
and asked him detailed questions including does it use oil? and are you a
dealer? I drove an hour and a half to look at it and it was on a car lot.
I guess he didn't figure I would notice. It had 3 flats and filled the
parking lot with smoke when he started it. His gravel parking lot met some
of the other cars on the lot as I left.
I can't imagine buying a plane ticket to go pickup something like that.
