i have an old fascination with the standard 2000. It was the most modern car in those days to look at. I can lay my hands on a dilapidated, completely useless 2000 with rusted (and non existent bodywork) and weak overall structure. If I decide to renovate a car like this, lots of parts will be non standard - even the engine! Will the car even be legal if I go through all that trouble?
I have a first generation Swift that I would like to mod a bit for performance. However reading experiences of people who have done performance mods, there seems to be a decline in reliability. I am sure I dont want constant workshop visits and breakdowns. is it even possible to mod a car and keep it reliable?
