I paid $5k for mine, then got $1738 back because of the previous owner lying about mileage and engine problems, then spent about $13k since then, with $2.5k in insurance and road tax.
The new engine + install ran me almost $2k, and I've also done so rust repair work at a workshop (another $1k), and installed an alarm, bought new tires, oil, lots of other misc parts.
The latest bill was $1500 on new stock springs, overhauled rear brakes, front light adjustment, fixing a wheel bearing, inspection, new head cover gasket, etc..
However, im stupid, I love that car even if its been a money sink, and its finally in near perfect condition, only got a few "small" things to worry about, like two rusty doors, some rust by the windshield, a small patch of rust underneath... and finding a set of nice 15" or 16" for the summer, no way im running 18"s again.
