This is the same argument as modified or original. It's your car, do whatever makes you happy and don't judge the people that get enjoyment out of their car differently than you do.
I don't own a trailer (heck, I don't even own a vehicle with a trailer hitch). If I ever figure out how to put my '66 back together, I'm going to drive it. But, I understand that most people who trailer their car are doing it as a way to show respect to all the hard work and craftsmanship that has gone into their car.
But at the end of the day, it's just a car. Enjoy it the way you think it should be enjoyed.
+1 wantaboss. My little stock '66 coupe, bought when I was 14 to begin the restoration, was my daily driver all through high school and part of college. Drove it anywhere and everywhere. No A/C, no PS (it was there but disconnected b/c it leaked) and as many amps as my budget could afford.
This will be a "little" higher build, but she will be driven just as much as I can find the excuse.
But to each their own...just enjoy life and the hobby in whatever way you want. It's your money and your time.

If nothing else it's a chance to get together with others with similar interests and enjoy time
Wife,........."You drove how far for that thing?"
Daughter,..."Theres no inside and it stinks."
Friend,......."Dude, thats a rusted piece of sheet."
Son,.........."This old car is cool."
12 years ago I took it to the Woodward Dream Cruise. I was there from Wed through Sat, and did some driving around, and in fact got lost and ended up around 8 or 9 mile in the worst 'hood I have ever seen - burned out mansions, trash strewn everywhere, and every eye peering out the window at the bright orange mustang with the loud pipes and a honkey driving. I was scared but kept driving until I got out of it.
I hate to tell you but those were the GOOD neighborhoods. 8 mile is Detroit's northern border, cross it to the north and you are no longer in Detroit. Eminem made a ton of money trading off of the "8 mile" name but really that area is quite safe, now when you really get downtown that's when things get interesting.
Come on back next year and I'll give you the real tour. I spend quite a bit of time in the hood for my job I have a '99 escort that I drive for urban camouflage, thinking of trading up to a '97 Town Car for the ultimate in ghetto stealth.
