Do you love old cars? Vintage cars are shown by collectors throughout the country in shows and admired wherever they go. Owners of older cars that have been virtually brought back to life have a double sense of pride if they have performed the restoration themselves.
There is a difference between automobile restoration and simple rebuilding. A rebuilt car can contain any type of part. True restoration, consists of getting as much authenticity into the automobile as possible, right down to the hub caps. The car will only retain the value if it is restored back to its original condition, not rebuilt into a different car. While "pimping" a car may be popular at the moment, a restored car is supposed to take us back in time, not remind us of the present.
The process of car restoration encompasses not just the parts of the car that can be seen by others, but also the mechanical components should also be restored to their original condition. Vintage car restoration is an art form unto itself. It takes people years to restore classic, vintage cars properly.
Vintage automobile restoration involves the process of disassembling the entire car, cleaning and either replacing or repairing the original parts and then reassembling the vehicle. In order for the car to maintain its original value, it must be restored with all of the proper parts. In most cases, the engine must be completely rebuilt.
