Default Restomod and Classic separate sections vote

Let's get a feel of how the members here on the classic section feel about separating the section into two sections. One would be the classic section as we currently enjoy and the other would be the restormod section where restomods would discuss their cars. The possibility would be that all years of Mustangs that are restomodded could wind up in that forum section. The admins are suggesting that we separate this forum into two sections and that if a restomod question or answer comes on here I would simply move it to the restomod section where another moderator would deal with it.

There is no point in two sections. The a lot of the restomod guys don't know old fashion technics that are crucial to building a classic and the oem classic guys may learn a thing or two. I would hate having to log into two sections to figure the answer to a question.

I think that even though there are things changed on a restomod, underneath all the new parts and fancy stuff is a classic. i said leave it alone.

I say leave it alone seeing that my car will look classic but with the drive train modified. I would not like to have to flip back and forth not only my questions but to see other members treads that give me idears and directions.

I say leave it alone. Being a new member to this forum, I must say that I find this bickering between these two groups is distracting from the information I am trying to find. I also feel the information between the two are very similar and very informative, whether or not I take my car in the restomod direction or not, the information that the restomods provide is still very valuable. They know their classic mustang just as well as an factory original resto. If I want to learn how to take off a quarter panel, why should I have to search for that information in two different forums. I just doesn't make sense to me.

I say quit the bickering, we are all working on old cars.

I think everyone has some restomod options except for the concours guys. Saftey and reliabilty are a good reason to upgrade. Granted there are some crazy things ya'll do to your cars!

If it ain't broke don't fix it. I've received loads of information on my Restomod from people like Soaring or whoever else is into the Original styling.
