Holy s***, we get home and then it snows half a foot. So much for taking the car out again today, I was looking forward to driving it some more (there are still some little things to iron out), T'Pau blasting on the stereo.
This could be my favorite supercar, know doubt it's in my top 4. *sigh* I already miss the warmer weather.

What do the mods do to the collector value on a vehicle like that?
It doesn't matter very much, they're still only worth half of what they retailed for new, but recently prices have inched upwards. I still have all the original parts, we'll seal them up and put them in storage so it can be returned to factory condition, if necessary. The impact on collector value will be minimal, since we aren't modifying the body of the car at all. We were going to do more, but we banked on the added performance of just adding newer tires, and it worked. The amount of grip it has is colossal, and the brakes actually stop the car, but they still aren't like a more modern car of this class, so you do need to be a little more careful when going hot into a corner. Still, there's nothing "wrong", it's just different, and I love different. One things for sure, it'll dust any car under $150k, even a GTR, and do it with impeccable style.
I love the interior, it's so 90s, wrapped in thick leather.
I don't care if the seats weigh 120lbs each, they're as comfortable as any lounger. Also it has every option you could get at the time, including an in-dash CD, one of the first cars to ever have one (and one of only 23 XJ220s ordered with it, because it was a $3500 option).

They don't write the ads. *grumble*
It does have all its original parts, they simply aren't all
