I beg to differ, that car needs nothing and should stay exactly as is, a survivor!
That is ironic, I never thought about it that way. Of course if I recall from a video, there wasn’t really much of a car left of the Jump car ‘558. I think it was just a shell with a VIN so they had no choice but to restore it.With this I agree.
It's ironic that the jump car is being restored to "perfect" after it was damaged from the stunts and found in the junkyard while the hero car has been used and appreciated in a family. Of course, it was repaired after the damage it received too before being sold from the studio, and repaired again after it was parked. The story of one's survivorship in a family vs one in a junkyard will make for an interesting contrast in values if the jump car is ever sold.
Personally, I'd buy the hero car as is for preservation and drive the jump car around more - haha!
