Hi All. I am throwing this out there to see how many others feel like I do on the topic of restorations. I have a deep appreciation for the time, effort and expense that goes into a complete restoration but here is the problem I have with the whole deal. It seems like something gets lost along the way and what I end up seeing is a new car of an old body style. I know it may sound weird but what speaks to me about old cars is the mojo they evoke that only comes from original parts with original finishes that have stood the test of time. How many of you would prefer "take off" parts with some wear for your project versus repro or NOS items? Maybe what I am thinking about is restoring cars back to 10 to 15 years old rather than birth. Thoughts?
