    all original or modified?

    what do you all think? I have the most common SC, a 90 auto with cloth interior. It is pretty much all stock now.

    I think it ultimately depends on how many miles are on your car. If it has low miles, I'd lean towards restoring. As for the second option, I do have all of the original parts that I could put my car back to stock if I wanted. Realistically, I will never put the car back to stock since I have another one the is a much, much better stock example. Even if I didn't have another SC, I doubt I would.

    Option 2 depending on what's being modded.

    Interior and exterior parts that get swapped out or upgraded I'd always keep stockpiled especially if they're in good shape. Engine, drivetrain and suspension parts I'd probably toss the original stuff though (with the exception of some of the more visible items like IC tubes and such)

    I would like to have both. I would like to have one that is completely restored with low miles and one that that is fully modded out.

    Yes, I am heading this direction currently .. hence the reason why a lot of us SC owners own more than one of these cars .. must be crazy

    Depends on the rarity of the car. If it was super rare I would probably restore/keep stock but other then that make it your own

    The only Super Coupes I've seen that hold some value and are somewhat collectable are super clean very low mileage 1990 35th Anniversary models. But even those only sell for $8-$10K, so I say do whatever makes you happy and anything that keeps these cars on the road a little longer, is a good thing.
