With modern engineering, they offer everything you’d want from a classic, and nothing you don’t.

At 2016’s Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance, a Florida-based startup called Revology made headlines when it introduced its first car: a 1966 Ford Mustang.

What could be better than daily driving a classic car?Everything you need to modernize your classic vehicle: Headlight, Dimmer, and Ignition switches; Boots, Tubes, and Grommets; Fuses, Relays, and Flashers; Original Connectors, Terminals, and Disconnects.Classic Update wiring systems are made for specific makes/models/years and are currently available in more than 40 kits.Fortunately though, it is possible to upgrade the brakes on almost every classic car. Additionally, it will make it more enjoyable to drive, and will probably reduce the amount of time you spend on brake system maintenance.

A particular issue with older systems is corrosion. Now, if you’ve got a gorgeous original ‘64 GTO, swapping the old drums for discs might affect the value.
