  1. Oops forgot to paste the link Here you go https://www.automotivetouchup.com
  2. 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.
  3. 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˜€
  4. Could it be a Bush or a Brush 😁
  5. Nosy Brit, (pun intended ) look as plymouthcranbrook has answered your nozyness I have lived in Brookfield almost my whole life and never knew the history behind the British home. Thanks plymouthcranbrook for finding them sites and posting them. Very interesting read. Cheers to you too 🍻
  6. Went to the website of the place my Stepfather lives at and found this picture on the opening page. As stated on the home page β€œHome Sweet Home” Since 1920 British Home Brookfield Illinois
  7. 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 this so I don't break my normal routine since I know this will be over soon. Hopefully I sure do thou do get the itch now that I am working from home to go out to the garage get my 1931 Packard up and running (which has not been out of the garage for almost 3 years now) and go out for a long drive like I used to do with my good old pup Harley. He loved going for rides. Another itch is, I had purchased a 1969 GTO back in November but at the moment I have it stored out in Indiana. Sure wish now I had it back here back in the Chicago burbs to work on it and also to get out and just drive wherever it takes me. To add with the Gyms closed down I do sneak in a lite workout at home during the day (shhhh don't let he boss know) and do get out for a walk after work. Sure dose help clear the mind and to get out to get some fresh air.
  8. 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.
  9. 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. 😎
  10. 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)
  11. 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‘
  12. Thanks for info and links. Will look into ordering the info packet from PHS. I had looked the car over when I got it to my nephews and seen no signs of red anywhere. The drivers door jam still has a service sticker with no traces of red around it. Wonder if the tag was changed at some point?
  13. The one with the gray front fenders was before getting them painted The one with golf ball in hole (not sure how that posted) was of my first hole in one
  14. Edinmass, These are some of the pictures from the broken link above.
  15. Hi, I just purchased a 1969 GTO. The color of the body I believe is the Verdoro Green Midnight Green but the trim tag reads PNT 52 B Wonder if some one here can verify that code for me? Thanks
  16. Been some time since I posted last. Not much going on with the Packard. Been in hibernation for about 2 years now.I know the following pictures aren't of a Packard. I once owned a GTO and regretted selling it. I have been looking at adds lately and my twin found this one Facebook market place. We went out to look at it a few weekends ago and I could not pass on it. Body work and interior has been restored, engine bay could use some tlc.Now back to the Packard. I have put about 1000 miles since finishing the restoration. Would like to drive it more but need front end alginement. The new tires have gotten some excessive wear on then. I am afraid to put any more miles on it until I get the alignment done. Hopefully next year.....

  18. My brother and his boy enjoying a ride in the rumble seat. My driving companion Harley who is no longer with us. I sure miss that boy. Our Great Uncle Al own my 31 before my father bought if from him in the late 80's. I still remember to this day when our Great Uncle Al would take us for a rides in the Rumble Seat around Marquette Park in Chicago. What fun it was......
  19. @topblissgt, Beautiful 69 GTO Judge you have there. I sure would love to own one once again along with a 76 Grand Prix I once owned.
