    Re: White...or Blue?

    Wow. First of all sorry to all you guys who woke up to "likes" to two year old posts!
    I was unaware of this project, what a great car. I love the interior, that stitching is really a stand out feature. I also always loved that dash design (driver focused). The color of the car is (IMO) perfect for that design. I know the top color has probably been picked, But I will echo the majority opinion and say the matching blue would be perfect on that design. Whatever color you go with make it an original and if possible the color it came with originally. I am not a stickler on that sort of thing myself, but with the amount of money you are spending, do it right.
    Glad to hear things are moving along. hope all goes smoothly from here. If they are really that good at what they do, it is worth waiting for. Better than someone slapping something together and getting you out the door for your money.

    Will do! I can't help but wonder what you did to tick off the car gods to punish you with this monumentally drawn out restoration. Say your prayers, maybe the next two years of the restoration will go faster. You will be so happy when it is finally back in your own garage in one lovely piece!

    Great to see some progress on the car after so long. It looks like a nice straight car. And did you ever decide on white or blue?
    Amazingly, aside from the lower fenders, trunk pan, and lower backlight channel, there was ZERO rust on the car, and very little in the way of dents, either. The body guy was actually pretty amazed at how clean it was over all. Which makes you wonder why it's taken him so long to get to this point, but that's another story for another day!

    In case anyone was wondering, the top will be dark blue tuxedo grain vinyl, just like it was when she left Clark St. in 1969.

    You are very lucky on the rust! Wasn't it a Wisconsin car originally?

    If I may make a suggestion: I think it's time to get that dude from the Food Channel show "Restaurant Impossible" on the case - he'll crack the whip! I can see it now, maybe we're on to something, Craig you and your car should be the subject of the first episode on the Speed Channel of "Restoration Impossible."

    Like alot of folks have written in this thread, we are all probably excitedly anticipating this car as much as you.

    Re: White...or Blue?

    AFAIK, the car started out life in WI, but that information is anecdotal from the previous owner. I have no documentation to back it up. Privacy laws being what they are today, tracing the car's history is problematic, to say the least!

    The thought of us maniacs all showing up should scare him into action!

    Wow! Progress! Time to get excited! They have sure taken their sweet time though - is that a municipal body shop you're having this job done at?

    When she's painted, the interior is installed, and she's running again, then I'll get excited. For now, I retain high hopes and low expectations.
