My bank account doesn't cover doing it twice but the Connect & Cruise set-ups initial price tag seems to cover that possibility of doing so just for the buy-in.
I am also learning that less is more and when it comes to old cars. I keep going back to the Singer Porsche model and that is to make it super clean and keep it as basic as possible. The Less is More keeps coming back time and time again for me. I have the 2010 Camaro with the SLP 575 package and I could spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on my 70 camaro and never get it close to being able to do what the 2010 car can do and do with ton's of safety features.
