Some people like the look, feel and smell of a new car—things just work as intended and there are usually few, if any excuses. On the other hand, some people can’t stand the bland sameness that most new cars exude. However, some folks like the look and feel of a classic car yet want the performance and drivability of a new one. This is a tall order.

Sure, engines can be rebuilt, fuel injection added, and interior appointments upgraded, but when it is all said and done, classic cars were built in different times using different materials and following different prerogatives. The ultra-stiff, computer-designed chassis and whisper-quiet door seals of today are the product of much computer simulation and wind tunnel testing. The near-flawless ergonomics and drivetrain smoothness found in practically every modern car, from the most basic Kia to the best Mercedes-Benz, is nearly impossible to replicate in a 30- or 40-year-old car.

There are those who try to make modern perfection out of the old, and one engineer/tuner in Northern California seems to have met that goal. He also added an extra dash of performance, and in the process has built something a bit special.
