It is the first week of December and the Holiday Season is HERE! It is also time for another great Ask Rick segment! This time he answers the question of which to pursue as a purchase, a great restoration or a well preserved survivor car.

Never one to pull punches, Rick talks about how a great survivor is of interest to him especially if it has only “been driven to church on Sunday” and does not have the slop from bad weather creeping into the body seams and under bolts. A car is only original once and it contains all of the intangibles of a factory assembly that are extremely difficult to replicate, even during a concours restoration. He recently showed his 1973 Torino at the MCACN show, and it’s a 38,000 mile optioned out unrestored hero!
