Do the bolt on stuff Headers Intake Carb or EFI but keep the parts for later if resale is in the future. Don't cut it up leave it stock looking. My 2 Cents.

I've noticed recently that "news" seems to subsist completely on copy-pasting tweets and online posts. Does nobody find it odd that this guy wrote an entire article based on a nastyz thread? I'm assuming he asked permission of all users involved?

Something all original, numbers matching and pristine as that car, I'd say leave it as-is. If one already has had an engine and/or transmission swap in it's life, it's fair game. I actually like resto-mods when they're done with some class and aren't overkill.

Not exactly a "survivor." In the article it states the quarter panel, and the trans have been replaced. Two big ticket items that take away from the survivor aspect. It is no longer 100% original paint, and that the drivetrain has a different transmission, definitely not a survivor. Modifications won't hurt it.

79 Z28s were built by the thousands... It's not a rare car.
Unless it's an extremely rare 79 Z28 RS (which should have NEVER been modified), the owner can do what they want with it. ;)

Personally, I would not make any uncorrectable changes and keep any original parts that are removed.
