Drive or Restore

This beautiful one of a kind Daytona isn’t in the best shape, but it is an original one off of a very pretty car. Personally I would dust it off, wash and wax the exterior, get rid of the disease on the interior, make driveable ad leave it as it is. I would never restore this car. The patina and the story it tells would be worth too much to me. Who cares if it knock a few dollars off the auction block? It was built to be driven and every rock chip and splattered bug would tell remind me how great a vehicle it is instead of returning it to more that showroom quality (cause none of the Concourse cars were as nice as they are now compared to when they rolled off the production line) and letting it rot in my garage.
