Resto-mods: Sav­ing cars from the scrap heap?

Finweek English Edition - - On The Money Motoring -

Older gen­er­a­tion mod­els are also evolv­ing into a new breed of car, with own­ers do­ing ex­actly what most clas­sic car ex­perts who place em­pha­sis on orig­i­nal­ity and au­then­tic­ity cau­tion against – rip­ping out orig­i­nal items. A “resto-mod” might look like the orig­i­nal, but isn’t. Un­der the skin all the old bits have been re­placed with modern parts and new tech­nol­ogy – a method favoured par­tic­u­larly by mem­bers of the younger gen­er­a­tion who re­quire a re­li­able, us­able car. Only time will tell how the value of th­ese cars will be af­fected.
