Enhanced Car

I was watching Barrett Jackson car auction this week. An interesting thing was some of the classic cars had been upgraded and were bringing some pretty good prices. Many of these cars were base models upgraded to copy a higher performance model. So they were not real SS’s or GT’s. And most of these cars had upgraded brakes, suspension, etc. Surprisingly they were bringing some pretty good money. Made me wonder what a real SS or GT would be bringing at the auction. One of the sellers labeled his car as enhanced. I get that. I would much rather have a classic car that was enhanced or upgraded than one that was stock. Better brakes or horsepower or suspension makes the car a better driver, more fun and more desirable. Drum brakes were a bad idea when these cars were new. Today, no new cars have drum brakes.
