Well the cars in paint now not to bad on the rust side but it was rear ended when it was almost new and the person who put the new driver side pannel on did not do the greatest job so thats that side of car that has it the worst. Besides little patch pannels being made and I must say doing a great job at johns he also is leading some of it! Should be ready for paint in about 2 weeks. Getting all new rubber seals and new front window (starting to fog) thats about it. Im not shure if I should tint the windows or not or to change the color, going to keep it dark red but should it be a little brighter??? Ok hope you enjoy the pictures.
Car came out of paint a couple of days ago, they block sanded the heck out of it to get all of the low spots out and so forth. Then John at Johns auto body sprayed about 4 or 5 coats of fresh corvette red somthing??? Not shure what it was called. They still have to wet sand and put the car back together but soon I will rolling around town in style again! Enjoy the new pictures.
Car is out of paint, with new crome, new badges, new weather stripping, so the car is now done... well almost >:)

The first car I saw in your collection is the caprice. I tought it was a really nice ride. Then I saw you had a ninety eight. I tought it was a really clean one too. Then I saw that riviera. Probably one of my dream cars. Yours is epic, and now with the new paint, it's even more. Great job, great collection.
Looks nice man. Looks like you got soem power out of that ole 455. How come you weigh so much? You have a huge stereo system in there or something?
