Here's the painting. It actually started out green, but wound up purple, sorry.
hey Rough Stock...U are correct sir. but that little p/u is nice too. can U believe any 1 would drive that HIGH dollar paint thrue bug allie! man i was born in houston, now live nere dallas. so i know! some cars should be trailered, in my view. call me POP...or the old FART!
Thanks for your post Juan. I love that about the HAMB. It's like a fingerprint database for traditional car guys.
Any more history/older pics on this car would be appreciated also. I am sure that James appreciates all of you guys input.
You got right, i bought the car from Val... he lived right out of Santa Cruz... one of the guys from Austin Speed shop said he did some work to the car when he was @ Salinas Boys... Its cool to hear the history on these old cars.How cool would it be if they could talk... the stories they would tell... No hybrid or Prius will ever have that kind of history!!!!!
that is a bloody nice looking ride right there!
never seen that done before with flake, is it just a green and blue?
where can I find some hubcaps like that btw?
That would be Todd Gravelle. Super nice dude and an extremely talented guy. Everything he does is done right, down to the details, and done with patience. He's a first class guy
very cool paint. love that flake and the diff effects with lighting.
Who painted it? Same guy who did your Caddy? Reason I ask is that I really want to hire the guy who did your Caddy. Did he do this one too? I may have to "up the offer" if he did both of them.
FWIW, I'm the guy that was helping Matt thrash on his car the night before LSR '09. You were at Matt's working on your Cad.
I stared at your car at LSR for a long, long time. Fresh outta the paint booth at that point. One of my favorites.
WOW! Thats all I can say! I dont know whats cooler-the paint or the fact that it gets driven with that paint job!!!!!!
Beautiful car! It was one of my favorites at the show.
WTF Greg? Why does the pic have to be with your truck and not my car???
Yup... Salinas Boys are no joke.. especially Todd... I know I have some pics of the car somewhere.. If I find any I will post em..
Couple more for my club brother james hope you dont mind Greg.
Ok John , you win. Nice pics.. haven't seen those.
Cool... hope you find them i would like to see them...
I like it....
That is one awesome automobile!!! Love the paint, the stance, everything!!
What's the rear bumper overrider off of? Kaiser?
No problem man... this thread is about that car not my car show pics. The more the better.
That shoebox of yours is a fire breather.
all the ones I took of your car and many others got scrapped. The sun was brutal that day.
