The thing is to realise that money is just an imaginary number. A number decided upon by the governing bodies. It can be easily manipulated to be a
completley different value.
The trick in this is figuring out how.

Another one I did was salvaging a Geo Storm.
For those who don't know the car, it's a damn nice car if you get it running right.
