I don't disagree with you at all in principle. The only disagreement we may
have is in the numbers required to be preserved. As I stated in my previous
post, I do feel that a number of them need to be preserved for posterity. I
wouldn't even begin to try to guestimate what the correct number would be.

As for butchering them, I am turned off by seeing even as ubiquitous a model
as the Chevy Caprice butchered. If well enough done, even an MG with an engine
swap can be representative of the marque.
