Resto-mods: Saving cars from the scrap heap?
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.
