in your opinion, does a car have to be returned to dead nuts stock? does it have to be origional right down to every nut and bolt? what if you see a 67 coronet R/T, origional 440 car, now has a hemi? how about a 69 Z/28 with a big block and cragars? how about a 70 super bee 440+6 cut, tubbed and turned into a drag car (i happen to know this gentleman, didn't know what he had when he did it). now, whole nother post about the people who try to pass off a fake car for a real car.
when i had my hemi runner, a friend gave me heck because i purchased stick on emblems instead of the ones with the pins on the back. aftermarket instead of NOS. i hated going to shows and hear people say " thats not the right dohickey or whatchamacallit".
just looking for some imput and stir things up. so whats your opinion on this subject? mine, you ask..... my hemi car was origionally F5 green with 2 tone green iinterior, bench seat, 4 speed. if i had it today, it would be black, black interior, racing seats, auto, full tube frame and tubbed.
money wise, yea, i would have lost money on it, but i would have built it the way i wanted it, not the way somebody else orderd it! some people say sell it and buy another one... but its my car!! stock just isnt for me, but i can respect any car, no matter what the owner wants to do with it.
