My first choice is authentic light (most everything factory stock within reason, save for tires and repairs, but not super anal about "numbers matching"). Now that I'm into collecting classic model trains and firearms, I have a strong appreciation for how things used to be done.
The second choice is restomod, like , probably one of the best restomods ever. I am not a fan of restomods that look modified - all stock appearing for me. I'd opt for a 2nd gen Charger w/modern Challenger running gear, or an early 2nd gen Camaro or C2 Corvette with modern Camaro running gear.
I have no interest in the numbers match thing. Sure it's good others do that, but it's fraught with too much anxiety and time. Just not worth it to me.
Exactly where I'm at. I'd love a '69 Charger with a Hotchkiss suspension, discs all round, and a Hellcat powertrain. For the wife, a '65 Mustang 'vert with a Coyote 5.0. Otherwise all stock looking on the outside.
