The cars were not built, "as the factory intended" in many respects, but as they were forced to do (and in some cases, via outright dumbassery - the long run of the horrible 3LDZ turbocharger as a case in point - that a mindful owner would correct).

Why leave the car in half-baked performance condition when the ways and means to build the car as it was meant to be are readily available? That is vehicular neglect and abuse right there.
This sums up the entire "mod vs original" argument in a nutshell, for any 'collector' car. I agree.
These aren't Patek Philipe watches.
