 +====== Automobile Restoration ======
  
 +What a dumbass idea? I can't think of an easier way to make yourself tired, work around the clock and lose all your money doing so. Margins are tight and their are only a handful of cars where restoration is profitable. If you must stick to these high price models and you just might carve a business out of it. At least make a TV series about it like these guys.

 +===== American Market =====
 +
 +The American market is unique in the world, they have a very liberal monetary culture that allows for soft industries and new ideas to find traction. Every other place in the world may not support these kinds of industries. The US has been at the heart of arts in the modern world for last century and the same goes for people who want to use arts to raise themselves up in the world, arts have always been a poor man's hope and they may find that the place they live in not as accommodating as arts in America, countless artists from non-American nations who have found success in "​Hollywood"​ now reside in the USA to be a part of the liberal ways of the USA at least as compared to other nations. These kind of details are important.
