I consider myself an automotive enthusiast, not a purist. A purist is one that would never modify a vehicle (unless the mod involves factory parts) because they came best from the factory. And a purist would never ever stick parts from Brand A into a vehicle from Brand B. Examples of this are everywhere in the muscle car ranks - stick a Chevy engine in a old Pontiac muscle car (easy, since they are essentially identical) and purists will call you all sorts of nasty names. Some extreme purists would even object to an LS motor in a C4 Vette because that motor didn't come out until the C5. I was once yelled at by a guy at a stoplight because I had 15" Rally wheels on my '68 Camaro instead of 14" Rally wheels as it came from the factory.
