The blend date is final assembly, when the car is completed. The build starts a couple days before that. The cars are never totally built in one day. Body assembly and paint happen before the blend date, for one.
Modified cars basically lose all the money you put into the mods. A car that is stock is worth more and is going to be more reliable. Plus, the likelihood of abuse of a modded car is much higher. The GT350 is a better stock platform if that’s what you’re concerned about.
