    We have seen many cars that have undergone restoration to modern day works of art. Some of these vehicles have been restored to period correct technology and components but at the same time we have seen restored cars equipped with the latest performance technology and amenities.

    Which do you prefer? Period correct restoration or the restoration modification route.

    I’ve become a fan of resto-mod. I feel you capture the timeless design and style with the best performance enhancements from today’s technology.

    Personally I like to try and restore it to the original beauty. Its also nice to add some enhancements too like FM radio, cd player, ect ect but keep it within the original design (no big extra speakers in the trunk). I wouldn’t go as far as to try and have matching numbers on everything, IMO that’s just too far.

    I like both. Both take alot of talent. There is certainly more creativity used in a Resto-Mod.

    Like you say you have the dependability of today’s parts along with the stylish looks from yesterday. I would imagine ther is alot more time involved in a Resto-Mod. I restoring I have done on cars has been to the original and that can be time-consuming also if you are doing a good job.

    It really does take alot of time and talent. You always run into problems that you don’t anticipate….
