While we all have our favorite niches in this hobby, you’d have to be living under a rock if you weren’t aware that restomods have been hot for several years now, with plenty of action heating up the live—and online—auctions.
Restomods are most typically muscle cars with more modern engines, better suspensions and braking components, and often have a level of modification to the exterior and interior, with the latter geared as much toward comfort of driving as anything else. These changes can range from the more simple engine swap to a wholesale customization of a car in nearly every facet. The restomod craze is just the latest iteration of a desire to hot rod cars that goes back to the beginning of the hobby. And, like any good hot rod, a good restomod is its own animal, a one-of-a-kind vehicle that reflects the vision of its builder as much as a car can.
