One of these days I'll inherit a 50 chevy 5 window pickup. It needs a lil work but its all original and in great shape for a 63 year old truck. My great grandpa got it used in the mid 60s and its been in the family since.

That would be awesome, but when it becomes mine I think its rather restore. especially since its all original. My ol man would roll in his grave if I went and turned it into a hotrod

Fully agree- original is cool
I hate that my engine & wheels are replacements - I've decided to keep the interior at least factory, even keepin the AM-FM Cassette
