10 Old Classic Cars Restored and Custom Modified with New Tech



Modern cars are amazing, some of them even border with science fiction, but one of the major complaints that experienced drivers have is that their designs lack true spirit of auto making that was inherent to the automobiles of the past. Indeed, classic designs are unbelievably beautiful and anyone would be lucky to own one, but what if you still cannot avoid the temptation to have some high tech in the cabin and a more powerful engine under the hood?

As it turns out, there is a viable solution for such a dilemma. A great number of designing and engineering studios are ready to take your beloved favorites and turn them into powerful beasts of modern automaking. In this episode we are going to give you the best representatives of these four wheelers that incorporate the latest tech innovations, and can leave you breathless with their stunning looks.

    !!!UPDATE!!! 7-8-9 is not solely based on the Chevrolet Impala design (the first Impala was released in 1958). This car actually represents three model years of Chevrolet in the overall design. The 789 has the “hooded eyes” and chrome grille of a Chevrolet ’57, a mid-section that’s reminiscent of a ’58 Impala and the “bird in flight” rear tailfins of a ’59." We apologize for the initial confusion.

    Cars used to be better… That’s what many of us have heard over the years. But driving classic cars in modern conditions could be challenging but why can’t you have both classic styling and modern tech? Here are 10 bespoke cars that offer just that. Which one would you get? (if you could handle the price tag, of course).

    There was no '57 Chevy Impala. It began in '58. Top of the line for Chevy in '57 was the Bel Aire.

    My vehicle can be added to the list soon. After driving her 20 years she gets a new manual transmission, an engine rebuild and a new interior this coming spring and summer. She is still running strong but the transmission is hard to shift and the interior is faded. I will also be painting the undercarriage and the body in the autumn. It is cheaper for me to restore my vintage beauty than it is to buy an ugly car of today.

    If I was going to buy a Porche, I'd buy a new one.

    I first read about the 789 about 12 years ago I think when they had produced less than a dozen models, all slightly different and all with different color schemes. It would be interesting to know how many exist today.
