Which Cars Do You Consider to Be Too Pure to Corrupt?
In anticipation of tomorrows video (insert more text here). Yes, the Porsche 911 2.7 RS is pure magic but there were other cars throughout history that contained this special recipe.
Take the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split-window for example. Only offered for a single production year, primarily due to owner complaints of not being able to see out of the rear window’s spine, the split-window has become a globally recognized classic American supercar. Today, many examples of the car are kept in tip-top original shape. Anybody who monkeys with the car is deemed unfit to own one and sent off the deep end as preservationist restore the cars to their original glory. Much like you’d find many Ferrari 250 GT California and Bugatti 37C owners doing.
The BMW E30 M3 has to be one of the most respected all around modern performance cars to have ever left the factory. Yet, many (and I do mean MANY) individual take the car, slam it, turbocharge it and gut the interior. Is this necessary? I feel that one day we’ll regret selling off the original “boring” parts only to track them down later and restore the car to its OE specs. To me, a pristine E30 M3 is something that should be as well preserved as a Porsche 2.7 RS. Maybe I’m crazy but maybe I’m right.
So tell us, what car do you consider to be too pure to corrupt?
