The great debate

The current issue of Star brings back memories of 50 years in car hobby. The purest and the modifier. Back in the 50's many Ford purest were furious with stock car racers desacrating beautiful 30's model Fords. Then came the street rodders and the Ford Coupes disappered like corn in a chicken coup. Many of the new cars later adopted ideas fron theese rodder. Now today some of the customs and modified cars are worth more than most pristine originals. I appreciate the creativity of theese guys but still prefer originality. Truth is the number of cars that end up modified go a long way toward increasing the value of the originals left. It's very hard to predict the future in todays economy but at present older Benz's are very cheap so if the modifiers become attracted to them I can't blame them and maybe someday mine will be worth just a bit more. In my teen years you could buy a nice Ford or Chevy off "the back lot " and drive it home for $50.
