Do you have the slightest idea what it takes to get a car started after sitting for 15 years? You say you're restoring the 73. Bought any tools or equipment
lately? I don't mean from Wal Mart either. You know, stuff like wrenches, floor jacks, ratchets and sockets, screwdrivers, jack stands. The list goes on
forever. Anyway, if you have spent several grand for the basic stuff to do your restoration you might have an idea of what's called start up cost.
The guy who got your car running has a lot more invested in tools, equipment, and learning his trade. If you got what you paid for, you have no lagitimate beef. If you think he overcharged you, go talk to him and tell him where you have a problem with his rates.
