Hi Max, this is an interesting question. To restore ot to improve? Well, following the italian way of thinking, I usually prefer to restore the car, even if I know I keep all the original problems (as the Dunlop brakes...). I can tell you that italian market prefers original cars, and doesn't like replicas or improved cars (it means no 2000 engine or ATE brakes on a Giulia Sprint GT). So, a modified car will be perhaps faster and with a better handling, but absolutely it won't be more valuable. But I see that abroad things are different...
Ciao!
