If I hold an Open house at my shop to show some of the stuff thats been going on? I am tossing around some dates in April, but wanted to see how much interest there would be first...

I am outside of Boston.

That's a really neat idea. If I was closer I certainly would come. I'm always interested in seeing how other folks are set up and how they do things........Bob

Could be fun. One of our local hot rod shops had an open house recently that was a great time for everyone. Jesse's Rod Shop has done a lot of body/paint work for us purists. His credentials include AACA National award winning 58 Chevy convert, a Yenko Nova, numerous Packards, 55-7 Chevys, a couple of Model Ts and our MG. Among the cars in his shop we had the chance to check progress on the chassis of a 1917 Studebaker. I guess with a name like "chop shop" you might run the risk of getting a few protesters outside the front gate, but hey, even they have appetites so free food should help make peace. Wish Mass were an easier drive from Va. We'd probably have a good group from our AACA region here.

It could be a lot of fun, but it will be a lot of work on your part. If the goal is to get future business that could work well. I worked at a restoration shop years ago and it would take a week just to get everything cleaned up and ready for inspection. As Terry stated the line between Rods & Restorations is getting a bit blurred these days, Good -Great body work is were you get it. If your stocker is getting a killer paint job sitting next to a wacked '50 Merc so what. You're only 3 hours away from me.
