UNCASVILLE, Conn.– Classic cars are about style.
Like the latest garments out of New York or Paris, there are different silhouettes. Sometimes the lines are sharply defined. Sometimes, they slope and emphasize the curves. Owners of these cars restore them to color palettes that reflect their taste—sometimes the colors pop, sometimes they exude a quiet elegance. And classic car aficionados like to deck out their vehicles with assorted accessories, such as chrome grills and mag wheels that emphasize their individuality. The classic car owners also like to add those special details that draw the eye in, such as racing stripes or logos.
