PEACHTREE CORNERS CAR SHOW ROUND-UP


There were a number of people who took some time to share their cars and stories with me while at the show, so here's a round up from the day's event


Other than painting the underside of the hood, Mike's '68 Camaro RS sports the original 44 year old paint. The interior is also original.






 
Rick's Fiesta Red '56 T-Bird is an original Georgia car







Alan Roth brought his Viper Red '57 Chevy. "I passed up quite a few 2 door sedans, but I made the decision a long time ago. It had to be a coupe. I'm really happy I waited."



Not in a million years could someone ever convince me a Tu-Tone Lemon Yellow paint job on a car would go well with an aqua and white interior, but now that I've seen one, I think maybe I was wrong. Adding interest to this '55 were the 45 RPM record player, original owner's manual, and the repainted fire extinguisher. Nice details.





 Mike Will bought his 1960 Corvette in 1970 for $1,000. It became his daily driver all through college. The car had a "top restoration" done in the mid '70's including new paint and some worn out interior components. This 100% numbers matching car then sat in storage for 25 years. Mike decided to do a frame off level restoration including the re-installation of the original dual quad set-up with twin Carter WFB's. 



Yes that's the original 56,511 miles on this car.



And yes that's a fully operational Wonderbar radio, the pièce de résistance of the interior.


Bill Craig brought his 1930 Ford Model A Deluxe Coupe to the show. It's painted in an original tu-tone body combo, Kewanee Green and Elk Point Green with black fenders and Apple Green wheels.




I asked Bill about these sill plates, wondering if they were "boot scrapers". He didn't know what the original purpose was. If you do, please drop us a note.




 Barry Womack shared some details about his '39 Chevrolet Deluxe Master Touring Sedan. "I had no idea getting parts for this car would be so tough. I paid as much for the 2 front fenders as the whole car sold for when new."














The last car in the line up was this Porsche 356 Speedster. The level of detail was nothing short of stunning. Unfortunately the owner wasn't around to tell us his story.





Look for us at the next show. We'd like to capture a slice of your automotive history.
