You estimates may be a bit high but you right that you could put a lot of money in it and never get it back. In this year there are lots of cars to choose from. Your not going to make money but for your investment you can have a lot of fun and should think about it as an investment in Fun. A driver paint job is easer to drive and enjoy but a show paint job can only be driven to show and may drive you to sell.
If this is your first restore or build try to keep it running so you can enjoy it and keep the enjoyment of driving it fresh in your mind. I see so many people get over their heads. Remember tearing apart a car is a lot easer than putting it back together. It takes time and money to put it back and Craig's List and EBAY are full of half finished broken dream giveaways. NV took only a couple weeks to tear apart and almost 3 years to complete.
Good luck - be strong - keep the faith!
