    i dont think the issue is whether patina is cool or not, sometimes it is, sometimes it just looks like an abused car. i think the issue starts when we see tv shows where they spray satin clear on em, dont put a headliner in em then sell em or claim to sell em for 85k...then everybody and his uncle goes all "American pickers" on it snd starts slapping rims, an edelbrock aircleaner snd some satin clear on a beater and asks 25k for it....its just...lame! if we are calling a spade a spade though some cars look cool just how they weathered, what are they worth? i guess what someone's willing to pay right?

    I don't do shows and mines painted but it has an old cut down school bus seat so as far I'm concerned, it's kid friendly.

    About 2 years ago - me and my son got my Dad's 1939 Ford Coupe running after sitting in a garage for 12 years. This car was finished in 1971 or 1972 - but never completed to be road legal - missing lights, ect. Progress is slower than I hoped - but many items added such as new steering box, total brake rebuilt - including disk fronts with 5 on 5.5 lugs. New sway bars and shocks front and rear. Holes in front floor boards repaired. The lacquer paint is showing its age from 1971, but in good condition all considered. We are going to keep this mid 1960's look. It is a good solid Ford - no exterior metal patch panels or rust through - just some in front floors - Paul Bradley panels did the trick. Has 327 and Muncie 4 speed for the motivation. rob 39 hood.jpg

    Looking at the title of this thread and a question came to mind......Does "Premier Patina" mean a car has more or less rust than cars with plain patina? :confused:

    I’m guilty of dorking one of my 55 Chevy Sedans with red primer spots in 1965 in high school. Not sure about “fake patina”either but I want an aged look to my current 57 project.

    Mine will stay as is unless somebody wants to donate lots of dollars. I think the guys that drive unfinished (or whatever we want to call them) hot rods enjoy them more than the high dollar types. I guess I’ll never know how it is adding another 10-20 grand and comparing.

    My Dad told me of painting a 55 olds black with a powder puff and some enamel. He said when it flowed out it looked pretty decent. LOL. Lippy

    image.png Really like Don's roadster.....looks like a very fun ride. But, if it was mine, I'd wax it with some cheap wax so it doesn't look "quite" so neglected.....sorry Don!

    I spray it down with Pledge about once a year. It has so much of that shit absorbed into the paint that duct tape literally will not stick to it.

    Not really into true fake patina. Especially where it's been cleared over. I also don't like where it looks like it has been bare steel sitting in water for years either. A worn or faded look looks good where you can tell it wasn't created other than by time and environmental factors. My truck was rattle canned about 25+ years ago and has a nice faded and peeling look just from the (or mostly lack of) quality of paint, paint job and prep. Another aspect is if it fits the total "theme" of the car/truck, like a shop truck look. It all has to work together.
