Nice to hear, in the US where I am mostly things like original receipts and papers worth framing and can add a lot to value. I had same thoughts updating a Merc roadster with a drop in rb motor for more grunt but decided against keeping car stock since I want get up and go and more roadsters came on the market from east europe few years ago so who cares as stock cars dont have the grunt.

My thought is since your car is now around 30yrs old then it might be best keeping stock and with papers makes it worth more, some ppl put cars like that up on blocks and wait while driving others. The way economy is going for that in western world might be best as some like style over modern plasticy bling. I would have done same few years ago but, I like push and pedal mods and ppl I know have shown how the cheap RB motor will do wonders for my roadster and for other cars too
