Same here: First one is my favorite! So is the second one!

You pay your money and take your choice, both nicely presented. The first is cleaner & tidier but quite a bit more expensive. Depends if you want something to do or not.

Nothing better to see than an unrestored 'survivor' car, both of these are remarkable for their lovely originality. Personally I'd prefer to own the second, the first is surely destined to continue to be a garage queen and a show-pony, too nice to really use.
