There are a couple ways of looking at it though- purism and potentialism.

The more the cars are changed around, the more rare and valuable the stock-configurations will be, but the historical signifigance and community numbers to maintain public interest in the model will be lost.

Example: gradually the Model A community all decide that lowering the chassis, installing rollcages, and putting 295's on is the norm. Result is the 10 people in the world that didn't hack them apart have cars worth millions(to those that will buy them), but nobody really cares, and the history is lost.
On the other hand, F# history because the Model A chassis is super lightweight and has track potential. The factory itself has changed/bastardized configurations endlessly. What's holding up progress?
