Not necessarily complaints, just opinions. Restoration to original
condition is not the same as $$$$$ customizing. Making sure all the
nuts and bolts are the correct size, thread etc. can be more
difficult to achieve than the installation of a hi-end audio system.

True, and nothing wrong with this.

The whole idea is to see how well and how many of these classics autos 
are "perfectly-restored". The fact that there are few of these cars is
what makes it an endearing hobby and a challenge.
