I've owned Vipers since the mid to late 90's and usually look for a car that has not been fooled around with too much. A few small modifications are passable but nothing major. I find it ironic that for so long everyone (Okay not everyone but most) are proud to announce that they have just purchased an all original car! Then as soon as they get it home they are so anxious to modify it. Wings, wheels, chrome do-dads, exhaust, engine mods, etc... Do you see our cars as more valuable or less valuable after they have been modified? In the collector car hobby most of us are only temporary custodians of our cars. We pay for the privilege to own and care for them during the time they are in our garage. Then they are sold and move on to someone else.
