When folks look to customize a classic car they usually pick a plain Jane.
If you found yourself with a straight six 68 Camaro and you wanted to cut the fenders off for 57 Cadillac tail fins, no one would care.
If you picked a rare car like a 67, 68 or 69 Yenko Camaro (360-ish cars over the 3 years), some folks might question your methodology.
Less than 5% of all R129s are V12 variants.
The V8 and 6 cylinder cars typically don't come with ADS (I or II) are easier to maintain and have a simpler suspension.
