The Jalopy Journal
Thanks, I'll have to share this with one of my striping groups, never saw anything like this.
OK, just what are they doing here? Looks like they are all using the same device. I'd say applying the pinstripes but I'm a pinstriper and that...
From the movie Great Balls of Fire
Well I owned a 64 Corvette 365 hp and a 66 Corvair 140 hp. Two totally different cars. I trded the Corvette in on the Corvair as I was going...
I had a 66 140 hp, the 4 carb version. I raced it at Old Bridge Speedway in N.J. It was a 1/12 mile strip on the front straightaway of a 1/2 mile...
The sound HAD to have been added after the filming, the Mustang up shifts about twenty times and never downshifts.
The class numbers threw me til I noticed it was probably Australian
Staged shot, no paint or palette in sight plus he's working over wet paint and pretty much going the wrong way. Yes, I pinstripe. :)

I worked at a Ford dealership in the seventies. They used to have a problem with cars shipped by rail. Tiny pieces of metal from the tracks and or...
I worked at an Oldsmobile Pontiac plant in the same time period and that is the way they did it there too. Not very efficient and pretty messy....
Probably a photo taken of a photo instead of scanning, they can get really distorted

Fuelly 63 split window. black walls on chrome wheels with dog dish, that's pretty cutting edge
The Caddy looks like it's nosed
A lot different from the way they did it at the Olds Pontiac plant I worked at in the sixties. The fenders mounted along with the hood had to be a...
Looks like a Kaiser and a Fraser too
FWIW when I worked at Linden, the lines was running at 62 cars per hour
One of my all time favorite movies. Never caught the Merc before though. :)
Wonder what they are spraying here, a sealer?. That guy on the right's gun is waaaay back off of the car. These were painted with lacquer, I can't...
Was this the Fred Jones that had Fred Jones Manufacturing? Rebuilder of Ford parts
