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 Antonio! I fully agree with you!!! I prefer restoration to improving!
It is sure that European way of thinking regarding classic cars is very different to the American one. About 1 year ago i with another friend from Greece had an argument with some members from America arguing exactly on this matter. Firstly i was surprised very much by the difference in our way of thinking but then i understood that it's how they like it.
