After the glorious week in Las Vegas we came back to rain and we were not to impressed, but winter is almost upon us now I guess. We had to move lots of cars around this week as the full bare metal restoration ’66 Coupe was evicted from the panel shop. We delivered her towards the end of the week to her new temporary home where she will be pampered at the paint shop. She will be there for a good few weeks now getting the final prep and paint, we’re looking forward to seeing her in the new colours. Terry made sure nothing was going to happen to his hard work he done on those panels. Both he & John even had a time to hide from Yogi behind the car; we suspect it was because they were trying to avoid making the tea! I could be wrong, but the dog gave the game away.
The panel shop will only be empty for a day or so before it’s filled up with another big project coming in for the same restoration project. We will need to inspect the car properly before we pass judgement on the actual amount of work required on her, depending on how deep those pockets will go of course. It will be another ground up restoration to follow on our blog, hopefully the pictures will be on here next weekend for you with the before and after photos of her arrival.
Anyway back to these ladies of the night, we were locking the yard up and putting some cars away when the urge to take a picture in the dark came into mind. No tripod, no set-up shot, no careful composition, just a snap shot in the dark. We have played with the colours a little to see what you think is best, we couldn’t make our own minds up so we have added a little voting button for you to let us know.
Black & white:
We have a had a little stand up the Birmingham NEC Classic Motor Show, we have some pictures from the show, along with pictures of the launch of our new product that has gone pretty well. We will post a separate blog about that before next weekend; watch this space!
We have now got the last pictures of Las Vegas uploaded to our blog. The Roush Mustang is a pretty spectacular car to say the least, driving to work in this would be like a track day – everyday!
Thanks to Yogette who worked extra hard to keep the office running as smooth as possible while we were at the SEMA 2014 show. She even had a little move around in the office, can you put it all back please? Only joking Yogette.
