...no longer itself??? i've been watching a new series on TLC recently called "overhaulin'" where they "steal" someone's car for a week, and completely trick it out, make it look completely awesome. thing is, some of the cars have a new chassis, and a new engine, and some new panel parts etc. personally i think it cannot be called the same car after all that, i kinda think of a car's chassis as it's skeleton, it's engine as it's brain etc. you can get away with changing the engine, but a different chassis? gotta be a different car i reckon, somewhat like taking away it's soul. weird i know, but what do you guys make of it all??? when does a car lose it's identity and is no longer itself?
