I tend to agree with all points.

The Camry well.....we’ll you can tell your date you’re getting 28 mpg or you’re Cindy’s dad who is dropping off all the kids for a sleepover. Then goes home to his frigid wife. Who is secretly screwing a guy who has a Vette.
I’m not buying a Vette to race a Camry. I’m buying it to find out how women (or the guy driving the Camry wife) like their eggs cooked in the morning.
Yet the vast majority of guys driving old Corvettes look like this dude. Too much time spent keeping it running to chase after panties, and they’d need their heart meds and Viagra to even be in the game.

RestoMods have gotten very popular in recent years so I don't think it will hurt you whichever you choose.

Default My dad flew down to see the car.

I gave the car to my dad so he could do a proper restoration back to stock. We found the build sheet atop the gas tank, all the numbers match and everything is there. My dad said with all the provenance it would be a crime to street rod such a car. In return he's going to find me another 59 and build it the way I want. I don't want a trailer queen, I want a classic daily driver that I can cruise down to the beach and around town..... fast!
Lol
Thanks for your input and advice.... I am jazzed!

Great outcome. If he finds a 59 with non matching numbers that would be perfect for a restomod.

Terrific, smart move. This particular car needed to be left stock.

I’d keep it as close to original as possible just because that what this car deserves.
