My car is a 1959 coupe with the 948 engine its 100% original with very low miles (50k) and it was last registered for the road in 1970 and amazingly its totally rust and rot free!
I plan to fix what needs to be fixed (which is not very much) and just use the car as a light duties daily driver along with weekend fun driving.
Part of me wants to do the whole make it pristine/ fully restored and part of me wants to just keep its patina and only attend to the paint imperfections enough to prevent continued decay as there are lots of spots where the paint has simply disappeared.
I do want to ad a heater which this car has never had for purely practical reasons and I reason that doing so will not compromise its originality because it was a factory option.
Like wise I want to ad a period radio and a concealed MP3 player for a few tunes while driving
