            Agreed AUX input is the best way to play music in a car other than maybe a head unit with a hard drive. Just a stream of audio without giving up your data or having to use a touchscreen on the dash. And no compression or data losses like with wireless things such as bluetooth.

            No wires is better than wires.

            Wrong, aux setup allows hassle-free switching between audio devices without any bluetooth pairing.

            Aux cable is the simple do-it-yourself option here. Bluetooth/Android Auto/Car Play is like getting pic related. Pointlessly complex and extra time because you're afraid of appearing like a luddite.

            This is incorrect.
            Bluetooth is easier to switch, and the quality is much better.
            Besides, what devices will you be realistically switching that all have a 3.5mm jack that has been out of use for ten years already?

            No on both counts. You've got to sync up phones to bluetooth on some shitty slow touchscreen, whereas you just plug a cable into your device with AUX. AUX doesn't compress data or lose packets in transmission.
            It's actually better than bluetooth through some app.
            Also, again, if you sync your phone to a modern car with BT or USB manufacturers can grab any other data from your phone.

            Still better than fumbling around for some dirty old cable that just sounds awful anyway.
            Plus, aux won't let you use the controls from your steering wheel, meaning you have to unlock your phone, then crash your car while looking at it.
            Heaven forbid someone calls...

      As someone who owns two classic cars I couldn't see myself going the restomod route like this personally. I just think the cars that come out the other end are overdone and tacky; the pic in OP is very much an eyesore to me even if I can appreciate the amount of work and money that went into it.

      That said, I'm fine with restomods that leave the exterior feeling period-appropriate, even though I personally wouldn't want Apple Car Play or whatever in mine.

    I don't like the paint color; but that's subjective if you like purple then its well done. I don't think the wheels are appropriate for it and obviously the suspension has been lowered to a stupid degree. Other than that I don't have a problem with it.

    >I hate restomods so much

    They can be good or bad. I'm fine with taking a car with a good body and turning it into a modernized daily driver. Unless a car has a particularly great, rare, or historically important engine and transmission I have very little problem with swapping them out for something modern and reliable.

What's not to love about a stock appearing restomod? Modern performance and handling in a car that doesn't look like a sculpted dog turd with some creases added to look aggressive.

        "Black person" wheels being one of the key parts of it. good looking, stylish wheels like op is good. donk or bling insane inch wheels isnt. good steelies is also great but you just know these cars suffered so greatly from their era tire tech and sizes.
        the myth american cars cant turn doesnt come so much from the cars and suspension setup, but from the hockeypuck pizzaslicer tires in full profile that rolled over sideways in every turn. making them wider did help a bit but not much they still roll over and its still hockeypuck rubber.

            as i said dont put Black person wheels on the car.
            lots of rubber might give good drag times, lots of rim give good track times. find the middle ground, and you can do that with modern or retro looking rims, its up to you. some modern rims look good on old cars, if you dont like it i dont care. go cry to your mom she can pat your head and tell you to her you is her favourite daughter.
