Chris,
the car looks fabulous!! Regardless of the rookie comments, these cars are not bought on a whim, or an alcohol induced coma. These buyers are well aware of what they’re buying, and what they’re spending. The time slots are important, but rest assured, the bidders on your cars will be there when your cars are run through. As long as you are positioned among like value cars, you'll do great. Best of luck to you!!!

It's amazing! I'll take a video for you in a few days and send it to you. They used Gyeon quartz. I know nothing about the company, but you can order and apply it yourself. I would have done it if my shoulder wasn't killing me at the time. There are several videos online of how to apply it.

Thanks Mike! I agree with everything you said and I appreciate your praise! It means a lot coming from an established builder such as yourself!!!!

Car is drop-dead gorgeous, and the right color combo. You should be just fine.

Back bumpers look misaligned. Maybe the pic but the left looks to be tilted down. Good luck with sale, love that black/red.

Must be the photo. They are even. I actually cut them apart and then welded them back together so they would fit perfectly. Pauls chrome did a great job triple plating them.

I didn't get a chance to see the pictures last night but your car is stunning. The paint looks miles deep.The stance is just right. You should do very well. Good luck with the sale.

You guys that sell in a no reserve auction have brass juevos.

Hope you have two or more that can't live without it.

Chris, are you talking about the Scottsdale auction in January? Beautiful car, you made a great choice on the wheels. What engine is car running? Good luck with the sale.

I think you will do very well running the car on Friday. I have a friend who is taking taking a Black/Red 1962 Resto and a Black/black 1969 Blazer Resto. I am sure you will be there all week showing your car and answering questions about it. A car of your quality will sell for big money no matter what number it is on? The buyers will stay and follow the car so it only takes a few who have to own it!!!
