How do you feel about mixing your classic cars? Not sure what we’re talking about? Check out this recent article
from Jalopnik where the owner of this vintage 1972 Pontiac Ventura gave his car what you could call a “restoration”, only he didn’t restore it to its original state. This Ventura has been updated to include parts from several other classic models.
This model now includes engine parts from earlier models of the same line, as well as several pieces from the Chevy Camaro. The Ventura now plays host to a Camaro front valance, a ‘73 Ventura nose piece, a rear panel from the Nova, as well as headlights that belong on a Chevy.
In addition to all these pieces, it has had the interior seats replaced with buckets (front and back) from a much later generation of the Ventura. The owner is now attempting to sell this original piece for over $25,000. Jalopnik wants to know what we think: worth the money or is this seller crazy to think that his creation will bring in that kind of cash?
We want to hear from you! What do you think about this conglomeration of vintage car parts? Is it a good mix that should bring in big bucks? There are a lot of classic car “purists” out there who don’t think you should ever mess with the original thing, but we are also a fan of people who want to put their own personality into a car! Restorations are a beautiful thing, and creativity can sometimes be even better!
