1955 Chevrolet Bel Air restomod.

"What is a RestoMod?

Resto - Mod. This word has different meanings to different people, but to me it means simply Restored and Modified to be better than new. Well what does that mean? Let's break it down. defines restoration as "a return of something to a former, original, normal, or unimpaired condition." The same website also defines modify as "to change somewhat the form or qualities of; alter partially; amend."

So in the interest of the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle, I classify a restomod as any car that has been restored (ie still has authentic vintage parts that have been restored) and modified (could be simple as power steering & brakes or as much as a new drivetrain, airbags, AC, sound system, ricaro seats and a nitrous kit).

Some folks think a RestoMod has to be a hot rod, or a rat rod, or a pro touring, or a pro street. Those terms all mean something different to most of the people that use them, so I won't get too much into it here. No matter your vocabulary, you have to admit - these cars are awesome."
