  1. @theastronaut Your are an artist at work. That is some beautiful artwork you doing there.
  2. That picture was taken back in 2017 a few months before we had to lay him down to rest. I miss him dearly. And yes he was a very laid back 85 pound diabetic lab and white shepard little pup. When I would be out in the garage working on the Packard he would be standing by the back door crying to be out there with me. Would drive my wife nuts.
  3. I just had this shop A-Len Automotive Service restore my original radiator for my 1969 GTO They also restored my 1931 Packard radiator back in 1990's

  5. This what I like about this hobby and AACA. Helping each other out.
  6. I sure do. I worked for my stepdads service station in the 80's. Recaps and even saved used tires (if they were still in decent shape) from customer cars when they had new ones installed. We would resell the used tires if someone could not afford new ones. That sure would not happen today thou. Or did it with my GTO?
  7. I found this while doing research on date codes From Coopers website http://us.coopertire.com/safety/sidewalls/tire-identification-number Tire Rack https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/techpage.jsp?techid=11 These are the only numbers and letters I could find following the DOT on my tires DOT 30HY-C280403 (pictured in my above post)
  8. I purchased my 1969 GTO back in November of '19. Stored at my nephews for the winter months. Went out on Saturday to go pick up the car and drive it back home here to Illinois. Had a few mishaps on the way home. On 80/94 I was looking into the left side view mirror I see this round chrome thing rolling down the expressway. I am like dang it one of my trim ring blew off. No chance I was going to stop and try to recover it. 80/94 at this stretch is not the best place to pull over. Later on my joureny getting close to home the front end started to shake vigorously. I pull over to check t
  9. Kerry, I don't find your post offensive at all. I am not a photogenic person most of the time too.

  13. Ed, I just order some touch up pens from this place for our 2012 Acura TL and for my 1969 Midnight Green GTO. We received our order the other day. It is still a bit to cold here for me to use them and see how the paint in these pens matchup to the paint on the cars.
  14. How about this Mid Night Green GTO I purchased last November. Original color according to the Data plate was Matador Red. Would I have purchased the GTO if it had been the original color. Probably not since I already have a Red Mahogany Car in the garage. πŸ˜€
  15. Could it be a Bush or a Brush 😁

  18. Me, I am doing well. I visit my 88 year old stepfather everyday to make sure his meds are filled, bring him food and just to be there with him. He lives it is an independent living facility and they are on lock down. I have been designated as his only visitor/care giver at this time. Home life well I have been working from home since March 17 but I still follow my normal routine. Get up at 5:15 have my 2 cups of coffee, Apple Cider Vinegar drink, mess around a little for about 20 minutes which is my normal time to drive into work and then login into my work computer. I do all
  19. The place you received the quote are they located in Berwyn? I had my interior done by Mr Trim. Don't recall off hand my bill was but am sure it was under $10,000. I was indeed to have it complete fairly quickly since I needed the car done for my wife's nephews wedding. So the cost was a bit more for the quick turnaround Attached are some pictures of my car.
  20. Thanks gents, I did order the PHS report and received it a few weeks back. According to the report the GTO original color was the Matador Red, Black vinyl top with black interior. Can't wait until spring to get out to tune it up and drive it. Thanks for the additional info. I really appreciate it. 😎
  21. RansomEli, I have used some these products for my restoration. Was very pleased with ease of use and the Tech support I received from Barry the owner Southernpolyurethanes (SPI)
  22. 95Cardinal, Thanks for breaking down the trim tag for me I really do appreciate it. Looks like some good winter reading for me from the links you posted. πŸ‘
