"If You can remember what it was like originally, Your probably dead". A
quote from a friend of mine-as We argued between Street Rods and My bone
stock '29 Chevy. In the big scheme of things, original, restofied,
modified, or restored non of it matters. What does matter is honesty. I
believe You can have a "restored " car even though it does not contain
absolute factory parts. As an example, a new top. They are not original
in pattern or material but is what is currently available. There really
is a whole list of bits and pieces that everyone uses and accepts as
original. And since the line of truly original is crossed, can boundries
actually be drawn? As in if I add an alternator? If all else is new (or
restored) is the car not restored because of the alternator? I am in
the middle of multiple "restorations" and battle with the questions of
What is good enough?. And the biggest, Why can't it be better? I may as
well say screw it because I always find things that could have been done
better.(Usually after getting it back from paint shop!!) I guess that is
why I like My Factory Original Fully Restored Yellow one. I said screw
it right in the beginning. Just like the Factory! Later Dave the Wave
