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.
I totally agree, and hate to see modern wheels on an otherwise good old car. It's hard to find any car from the 40's, 50's, or 60's that still has the original wheels and hub caps.
