Actually, that is not correct. "Classics" that sit in garages and
figuratively gather dust are "useful" and used as dedicated
show/concours cars, trailer queens, garage ornaments, and
museum/collection pieces. They would no longer be "useful" in those
roles if you upgrade them with new and improved after market parts to
make them reliable and drivable, two things such cars need not be.
Getting you from point A to point B and back again reliably is not
their purpose. "Useful" is not necessarily defined as reliably drivable.

If you want an all original "trailer queen", then that's what you buy.
If you want a "driver", then buy a "driver". You don't buy one for the
purpose of having the other. That's not cost effective.
