Nice Day for a Drive

Before I took the car out, I checked the universal disks.  They looked the same as the day I first installed them in 2007.  Drove about 30 miles round trip to a park near my house.  Beautiful sunny day with temps in the high 70's.  I have driven 260 miles since I did anything to the Vaccuum fuel pump.  So, I guess that's working properly.

The car looks great but rides like a 93-year-old car.  Likes 35mph but on one lane roads drivers get impatient so I pull off where I can, to ease their stress.  I can't seem to find the right light to photograph this car because there are always reflections in either the glass or paint.  The picture below is the best of the lot.

That's amazing.  I had cars painted by MAACO back in the 60's with less than satisfactory results.  I guess these guys recognized the importance of what they were working on and went the distance for you!

I don't know about all Maaco shops but this one in Dover is a big shop and they do a lot of old cars.  Of course, I paid for the extra care but still the cost was just under $2K for everything.  Excellent job.., maybe I got lucky ?

I don't know if you got lucky or not but you got a beautiful paint job for a great price.
