Restoration

Well with my New Years resolution crushed I'm turning to the classics again. But I want to know everyones opinion on bringing old cars back to life.

What I was thinking about was doing a retromod this time. I know there are a bunch of people not into retromoding and thinks its destroying the car.

So plan one looked like a:
1964 Fairlane with a DOHC 4.6 S/C with a 5-speed 3650 manual from a 2001 cobra along with mustang II front suspension disc brakes all around and a good ol' ford 9".

or plan two:
Restore a 1994 SVT Lightning while adding goodies in the engine bay.

With the Marauder dream crushed I don't know which route to go with? Restore or retromod?

What you guys and gals think?

Re: Restoration

I think you should do the fairlane, It looks cooler than the lightning IMO

I would have to agree the fairlane would be more apleasing. I do believe it would be a sharp car....

Watch some Barrett Jackson. Restomods are more fun because you can do anything you want to them. Restomods are bringing home big money too. Saw a 64 nova bring over 300k 2 years ago. This one.

I watch Barrett Jackson all the time they got some good stuff but I feel they force up the prices of older cars.
