Re: Newbie with a question "Survivor"
Just for sake of argument....
SO a car that was wrecked in the front fender and the fender was repainted IS a survivor, yet a car that was never wrecked and repainted (with factory color) to further protect the car and has everything else original is NOT a survivor?
Here's my take:
A Survivor car is an unmolested original car. That means, to me, that nothing has been changed on the car from it's original state with the exception of maintaining it's originality. if ya really think about it, with a few exceptions, almost everything on a car is a wear item. If a car has been repainted with original color because the paint was wearing out after almost 40 years...you are giving the car the opportunity to survive by protecting the metal.
By "unmolested" , and by the very definition of the negative connotation of molested....repainting a car whos paint has worn is far from molesting the car.
You are carrying on it's ability to "survive".
Survivors , to me are cars in thier original setup, free from non factory items being added or changed. If ya change motors or drivetrain...not a survivor.
If ya have an all original car and repaint it same as factory color...to me, still a survivor.
