About two months ago we discussed a topic on this site about Tijuana upholstery jobs. Let me post an article that is in the March/April of the V-8 Times, the magazine put out by the V-8 Ford Club of America. About 50 some odd years ago, when he was a sophomore in high school a young man purchased a 1932 Ford three window coupe. It was a father and son project. They drove the car to Tijuana for a paint and upholstery job. He was given a quote and was told, two days for completion of the job. He and his dad stayed in Tijuana sightseeing and checking on the car. He drove the car every day for a few years until he purchased a new car and stored the car in his dad's garage for over 50 years. His dad died two years ago and his mom and he agreed to re-do the '32 as a tribute to his father. He trailered the car to several shops in Tijuana and got an estimate and receipt from the shop that he selected to do the job and was told to return in 6 weeks. After 6 weeks he returned to pick up his '32. When he entered the shop and asked where the car was he was told, "What old car, You didn't bring a car here, I don't know what you are talking about, you must be in the wrong place". He called the Tijuana police and the police talked to the manager of the body shop in Spanish for 15 minuets and told him they don't have your car and we can't do anything about it, even though the owner had the pink slip and the estimate from the body shop. He hired a Mexican attorney that was no help at all. He has offered rewards, hired a private investigator and working with the police was in vain. If anyone has an idea about bringing their car to Tijuana for a paint or upholstery job you better think again!
