6 pros and cons of vintage car ownership

If you got all your vintage car information from TV shows, you’d likely think all classics had paint shinier than the sun and, if they didn’t, had to be restored in 30 days or someone would be forced to sell their shop.

I have to ask since this picture was taken at McPherson College in KS.....I grew up in Derby, KS and there was a family there that was well-known for all the Corvairs they refurbed and customized. I never knew the family but I sure appreciated seeing their work. The town had appreciation for cars. I grew up more in the garage with him than in the kitchen with my mother. And no one would assume I'm female due to my name. He  left me his '64 Pontiac Bonneville we're trying to decide to refurb or customize. We'd prefer original but he was from the days of customizing and he had started in that direction. This article and subject brought back fond memories of my little town.
