Thanks for the info!
What's the title say, have you looked at that?

both have there place.. sadly.. the car hobby is full of high than to. types.. in every segment..
most on here would laugh at almost all imports.. the rod guys don't like the muscle guys.. the muscle guys don't like the new muscle guys..
it's somewhat sad... and all you got to do is go to a show and walk around and overhear people talking.. I really thing some go just to pick apart everyone car on the field..
FYI: It's Brookville Roadster. I used to live in Brookville Ohio. Neat place, like walking into a time machine. Brookville Roadster

OEM vs repro. I guess it depends on your perspective. I never cared about oem vs reproduced bodies (steel or glass) until I got my '69 Camaro which is an all steel numbers matching original survivor. When Dynacorn started importing new camaro bodies, and guys started cutting rusted scrap oem cowl's up and building a "new" Camaro around a VIN tag it chapped my *****. It hurts the value of my vehicle and its just plain dishonest.
