Land Rover has earned the status of carrying British Royalty. And why not? Such elegance simply cannot be classified as an SUV.

There is still room for more improvements of the existing.

GM may seem out of place in this list. It's not that I won't take on other domestic vehicles; I based this selection on what I see the most of.

Every possible precaution needs to be taken to maintain the originality. Electronic upgrades to a Classic open up challenges not seen in other cars, any equipment added was unheard of when the car was manufactured and needs unprecedented planning and impeccable handling.
