You know I used to be quite obsessive with vehicle restorations, spending days, weeks, months and sometimes longer seeking out that "correct" illusive missing part, rebuilding and refinishing to better than new condition - the lot. It was a kind of maniacal OCD thing where everything had to be just so, and if not it would play on my mind until it was. Then when it was all done there was the constant worry if it got written off by some uninsured Richard Head twatting about with his mates.
But you know what, nowadays I'd rather see something with the the kind of patina that only use and passing years can achieve. I no longer obsess about motorised vehicles - and it feels good!
