I've spent a lot of time dealing with fakes, including writing to auction houses, car magazines, and prospective buyers to let them know that one or another Lancia is not what it appears to be. Sometimes people listen; other times they do not. Either way, I have less than no patience for falsified history; I am an absolutist on this subject.

However, as Rick suggests, that is a very different issue than whether or not the owner of a far-less-than-rare car wants to paint it in non-original colors.
