Hey thanks Freddie. Nice to finally put a face with a (user) name!!

Yes, I did get my paint analyzed at MCACN. Mike Ardito is Dana Mecum’s car collection care taker (and uber restorer) and his friend did a good (given the environment we were in) visual and paint gauge analysis of my paint. Although I thot I had more original paint, it is a relief to finally know more exactly how much there actually is. He reported to me that I have “60% or more” original paint. All horizontal surfaces (hood, roof, rear deck, fender and door tops), door jambs, hinge areas, and generally all areas above side stripes are original. The 2nd owner in his words “reshot the rocker panels” with single stage paint back in the early 90s - well that demarcation actually extended up to the level of the side stripes.

Thanks to Steve Shauger for hooking me up with Mike Ardito to do my paint analysis!

In general, I like the blemishes and imperfections of my original paint - it tells a story!!! By the way, Woj and I had fun working on our original paint prior to this show....and Meguiars 7 is our new go-to product!!!!!!

Yeah, you got that right Eddie. I had no problem hooking up my tow bar and displaying my racing trophies and posters in front of the car. I personally thanked Bob more than once when there wasn’t a wall of humanity 10 people deep surrounding him with all of the responsibilities he has with pulling off such a intricate, world-class car show. Woj and I really loved our location in addition to the extra room we had. We were located next to the three hottest attractions at MCACN: 1. Steve’s Vintage Certification 2. The Snack Bar. 3. On the way to the restrooms!


BTW, does anyone recognize this truck driver? She took our cars back to Ohio. She’s not the same driver that brought our cars out to the show!

Simply Awesome Sammitron!! I'm so sorry I missed the show this year and seeing your car. Hopefully next year at the Chevelle show?

Well done and well displayed my friend!!

Cheers

It was great meeting you Sam and talking with Woj again.

What a cool pair of Chevelles next to each other. Both cars were stunning to say the least.
