Classic car restoration is a very rewarding experience and nothing can surpass the enormous feeling of satisfaction you will get when you take ‘her’ out for a spin for the first time! It can, however, be a very expensive business and, consequently, you will need to consider your budget very carefully.
I am sure we all enjoy viewing a classic motor car that has been restored, but what is a classic car? I guess it is a bit like defining an elephant, I struggle to define it, but I know one when I see one.
It takes dedication, knowledge and patience to properly restore classic vehicles. When a classic car or truck is properly restored, it is valued at the highest possible price. Professionally restored cars also look more beautiful and run more efficiently. Proper restoration means using original or appropriate parts when making repairs or replacements. A classic car is only as valuable as the parts used to recreate it. Locating obsolete parts and making them work is part of the art of restoring classic cars to their original beauty.
