I agree - awesome restoration however I think the price would also be awesome as well. Any guestimates?

Think I have seen them advertised for around 70- 80000 + pounds in the UK, so should be worth $AU 150000 - 200000?? :think:

I'm not sure what is more exciting....when she is getting undressed....OR when she has all of it back on again.

This rotten example was one of two he had restored in Riga.
