Many collectors are perfectly happy to bring home their latest find and place it on the shelf. But for some car folks, the real fun starts when the tools come out – and the modifications begin. It’s a trend that started when cars were cheap and easy to find; as the years went by (and the complexity of most models went up), many “modders” either upped their game with high-end pieces from trashed and bashed replicas (often purchased in diecast “scratch and dent” sales, or from manufacturers who had damaged goods in their warehouses), or learned to make do with repaints and tweaked trim… whilst listening to the wailing and gnashing of teeth from collectors who would sooner kick a Granny than take a “perfectly good”, as-built model apart.
So – where do you stand? Do you tweak, or leave it stock? We’d like to know. Join us on our Facebook page and state your case – and leave those Grannys alone.
