This forum could actually be pretty awesome if all new members were required to make a thread here before they could post and everybody just flamed them in here.

Restoring a car for investment purposes will play a big role in deciding your purchase. You need to find a car that is as close to original as possible, especially one that has matching numbers on the engine, body, frame and transmission. Restoring the car’s original parts will retain the cars value much more than sourcing parts from similar makes and models.
