    I would fisrt figure what you total cost would be, How long do you plan to build? Realistically how much can you afford to save on a monthly basis without tapping into the general living expenseses.
    I built my car in 4 1/2 years and I used money I made on the side ( carpenter). I saved my money for one entire summer and that gave me enough to buy the body and donor car to get started!. Everything else I just bought over the years piece by piece. Using income tax payments to purchase big ticket items and such. Now I'm 98% complete and 50 grand in receipts not including my labor.
    If you come up with a decent game plan it can be done.
    To purchase a 13,000 dollar body by june you would have to save roughly 1450 per month starting in Oct.

    it may sound far fetched but i plan to buy a lp640 next summer and build though the winter and be done in one year,with john body i think it can be done, 1400 a month is alot + living expenses,,alot of the work after i buy the body ill be able to trade off though my craft,so mainly ill have to pay for the body and parts
