Like many guys who entered this hobby decades ago with the thrill of seeing the really early cars that were more often preserved rather than restored, I'm a purist and keep my cars as authentic as practical, but I think you all knew that already. To each his own, but it gives me shivers to see cars buggered up so their historic context is gone. Granted it sometimes limits how and where I can drive them. I find the excuses for 12 volt conversions, electric fuel pumps, brake conversions, electric wipers, alternators and the like generally pretty feeble.
