The trouble with gorgeous classic cars is that they drive like, well, old cars. But modern engineering and a fat wallet can cure that. By jacking up the sweet vintage bodywork and rolling a modern car underneath, we can enjoy modern fuel-injected engines, sophisticated suspension, monstrous brakes and must-have infotainment devices.

This trend has produced a boom in astounding restomods, so check out the 10 best ones we've ever seen up top.
