10/11/15 A Day To Be Very Proud

NCRS Top Flight - 97 points on the first try.
After 7 years of searching for parts, completing a frame off restoration
and day after day of detailing and assembly, it paid off today with the
top flight award for my 65 big block. I could not be happier!

Congrats Steve. I was there and saw your car - very well done. Good luck on the regional. The one in Lakeland is a good one.

A good friend of mine doing the exact same car you have. I know he spent a lot of time Sunday looking at how yours was done. His is still in a lot of boxes though........

Tom

PS: Had my 58 registered for that judging event but came up a little short on time trying to finish it. Got it back from paint 10 weeks before the show, just not enough time assemble a whole car. (of course the car was supposed to be back from paint in May, but that is a soap box for another day)

Couple pics of your car at the show, plus my 58 the day before............

Thanks for the pics. I am sorry I missed you at the meet. Since then I have been doing nothing but straightening out the interior ( lights, cables), the engine compartment (bolts, clamps)and fixing some weatherstripping. wire ties, etc. Nickle and dime stuff. My convertible top still has to be adjusted and I am painting the back of the car to remove some dimples from a luggage rack that was on the car before I got it and I am having the valances, door jambs and underneath the deck for the top dulled out with satin clear. All that is happening this month and hopefully done by December. I also have to send my alternator down to Pirkle for the red lacquer, stencils and numbered diodes. After all that it will be off to FL.
Pretty crazy stuff on the details but I came this far so I want to finish it.

Steve

Steve,

I hope you have your stuff back from Pirkle by now. I have not had very good luck with him trying to get a few things for the 58. Ended up going elsewhere as I was getting nowhere with the "master".

Good luck in FL. It is a great meet to go to.

Tom

Wow. The car looks like new! (and probably even better), you did a great job in winning this award, but maybe there is a 'before' picture of your car? I would love to compare it.
