The car looks great, glad that it came out so nicely and a grim situation turned out OK in the end.

Wow - it looks fantastic. It's nice to know someone can still do great work these days.

I'm praying I can find someone to do a job like that anywhere near that professional on my 72.

I upped the agreed value on my car last Insurance cycle - even though it is not been painted etc.

Weather is finally warming up here in MD, time to get out in the garage and get the interior back together. 

Your ride has encouraged me to get a move on. 🙂

AMEN! DRIVE IT! That's what we have them for. Hidein them is unfair to the next generation. They need to appreciate the past.

4000miles!  Wow, great stuff!  That's what I call driving a C3 - can you believe I know some people who think a 100 mile round trip for an event is too much!

And, the car is looking good doing those 4k miles!👍
