Resto vs. Restomod

I just received my copy of Chevy High Performance and I wanted to quickly respond to your question concerning ride preferences between “Resto vs. Restomod.” I wanted you to check out my '69 Camaro convertible (frame-off resto). During my restoration I decided to go more restomod due to the very same fact that you spelled out in your recent Shop Talk article. I enjoy driving my car everywhere, not just to the local digs. I also dig my 15-inch rollers but have included other features that just make plain sense to include, like disc brakes and a more “up to date” stereo system. Of course, then there is the added … well you get the picture. Happy Trails and keep up the good work!

Another for Restomod

I share the same views as you, and I have to say Restomod. I'm the proud owner of a '71 Chevelle that just got an LQ9 and T-56 six-speed trans, a 12-bolt rearend, CPP stage 4 Pro Touring package, and a couple of other items for my future build. Love Chevy High Performanceand your articles; keep up the great work.
