Default Re: What is your collector car Pet Peeve?

Mine has to be taking a great, original example of anything and the tacking on modern parts such as rally wheels, chrome valve covers, velour tuck and roll upholstery, cd players, dual exhaust, etc.

I know that they are theirs for others to do what they like, but it's to me a shame to take a piece of history and "individualizing" it. What happens more often than not is these "upgrades" make them look more like the rest of the flock rather than unique.

Try and find a totally stock car in a car show nowadays...rare. When I go to a show I appreciate seeing what cars looked like when they were new. I have to use my imagination more and more.
